Rational Surgical Solutions has announced that it is partnering with Boston-based MedSelfEd, Inc. to use the company’s educational videos to power its Rati-Fi™ Informed Consent application. The Rati-Fi System is an innovative, video-based method of obtaining informed consent. The PreOp® Surgery Centers and The PostCare™ Discharge Series are part of a library of more than 80 videos produced by MedSelfEd in collaboration with doctors from Boston Teaching Hospitals. See the Rati-Fi Informed Consent System at HIMSS16, Kiosk #63 in the Hx360 Innovation Pavilion at HIMSS16 (Feb. 29-March 4, Las Vegas).
“For more than 15 years PreOp.com has been developing educational, informed consent content,” said John Samellas, CEO. “The Rati-Fi System is the perfect delivery vehicle for our content because it offers such a revolutionary solution to achieve informed consent.” Samellas explained that PreOp.com worked with Rational Surgical Solutions to customize their video centers for the Rati-Fi app, updating the content to reflect current medical practices.
The PreOp videos provide the educational component of the Rati-Fi App. “For patients to make truly informed choices about their treatment, they must understand their options,” said Dr. Jonathan Fialkov, CEO and Founder of Rational Surgical Solutions. “PreOp videos are medically accurate, engaging and of the highest production value. The combination of detailed medical illustration animation, and clear explanations of complex procedures teach at a level appropriate to the audience and educate patients very effectively.”
