Wall, N.J.-based Meridian Health is using Raleigh, N.C.-based TeleHealth Services as its new patient education and entertainment system provider.

TeleHealth Services will provide Meridian with a service package that will include an interactive patient education and entertainment system and access to movies and television through a partnership between DIRECTV and TeleHealth Services’ customized DSS programming. From their beds, says the company, Meridian patients will be able to view educational videos and have access to live television, movies and games. Patients will also have an Internet connection.
