The NAHSL CE and Marketing Committees are pleased to announce the latest NAHSL Innovation.

Submitted by Christine Bell, Medical Library, Newton-Wellesley Hospital

As a key player in Patient Education at NWH through its participation and coordination of the oversight Committee, the library has recently deployed the Krames-on-Demand(KODI)product – thousands of low literacy, multi-language health sheets on disease topics plus medications, and procedures.

The system is now in use throughout NWH to provide consistent teaching materials in support of patient care throughout the institution and affiliated physician offices.  The Library serves as the administrator, licensee, payor, technical specialist, and database manager.  The product has been well received by clinicians and the Library is now working with targeted groups to optimize their use by building clusters of related subject folders for use, by the areas.  As well, the library has recently completed the integration of the KODI authoring module so that NWH-produced patient communications and teaching materials can be developed or linked into KODI to provide a single source for all patient teaching across the hospital.
