Lehigh Valley Health Network has announced a partnership with Sonifi Health to install interactive systems for both patients and physicians Dec. 6. 

The Sonifi system has been installed at more than 1,750 beds across the Allentown, Pa.-based health system with further expansion planned. The technology personalizes patients' experience and prepares them for outpatient discharge through integration of educational videos, care pathway workflows and hospital directories. Patients are also asked to complete surveys on the system, allowing for care to be continually improved and monitored. 

"With SONIFI Health, we're offering amenities and technology that are on par with those in a hotel room, as well as creating a unified way to obtain valuable patient feedback and provide useful tools for our clinicians and other bedside teams," Jan Wilson, DNP, RN, Lehigh Valley Health vice president of patient care services and chief nursing information officer, said in the press release. 

The in-room system also offers on-demand movies and streaming services to serve as distractions.
