1999 Informatics Scenario - Congestive Heart Failure

This video depicts a scenario outlining ways that patients might interact with technology to learn about their health, make informed decisions, and increase the quality of their care.

Video Summary:

Evelyn visits the doctor, who informs her of her congestive heart failure and uses an interactive, multimedia website to help her learn more about her condition, learn ways to treat her condition, and to track her own condition online. Evelyn is then able to provide suggestions for her own care, and the physician uses an integrated voice-interactive alert service to monitor changes in patient care guidelines.
