Patient education with new media applications

  1. In relation to patient education, using new media and lowering hospital readmission rates, how can we combine the first two to equal the third? Can new media be used to facilitate patient education? I think if we utilize the correct platforms, patients would learn. Although the older generation is not using multiple mediums, they are willing to use the basic ones. With baby boomer getting ready to retire we have to find new ways to educate those that aren't comfortable with technology. What are your thoughts?
