Adventist Health System (Winter Park, Fla.) has signed with Bethesda, Md.-based GetWellNetwork Inc. to provide interactive patient care technology for the system’s 37 hospitals across the country.

GetWellNetwork says its bedside technology enables hospitals to engage patients in their own care process and improve the patient experience by transforming the television in the patient room into an interactive resource. The system is designed so that through a wireless keyboard, touch screen or handheld device, patients can interact with the system to access education resources, communication tools and entertainment options at the bedside.

Adventist Health System is the largest not-for-profit, Protestant healthcare organization in the United States. Serving nearly 4 million patients annually, Adventist operates more than 6,300 beds in 10 states.
