  • 1. Patient Journey: medudoc guides radiooncology patients on their way to recovery

    medudoc videos cover all relevant aspects of the patient journey to improve patients' understanding of clinical processes in the scope of their radiation therapy.

     

    For instance, the radiotherapy video provides plenty of information regarding the indication for radiation, the discussion of treatment alternatives and the scheduling of the treatment. Useful instructions to follow before, during and after radiotherapy are provided to ensure that the patient is well informed regarding the radiation itself as well as its context in terms of clinic processes.

     

    This way patients are given the opportunity to contribute and gain a sense of security as well as self-efficacy.

    Discussion of treatment alternatives with the treating physician

    Explanation of the scheduled treatment intervals

    Instructions regarding preparation for the radiation

    Steps in the radiation process

    Instructions for the time after radiation

  •  

    medudoc presents precise information along with lean and clear animations to illustrate a series of steps in the radiation procedure.

    2. Medical Animation: accurate visualisations of radiotherapy aligned with patients' emotional needs.

    • Hearing the word "radiation" can be intimidating and anxiety-inducing to patients. For this reason we aimed to provide useful context information regarding the course and scheduling of out-patient radiotherapy and thus demystify the radiation process.

    • Patients are provided with a comprehensive overview of common risks associated with radiation as well as side effects to watch out for and how each of these can be treated.

    • For instance, patients are informed that experiencing fatigue or exhaustion in the course of radiotherapy is common and treatable which may reduce feelings of anxiety in case these symptoms do occur. 

  • 3. User Research: doctors and patients confirm the value of our radiotherapy videos

    Our validation survey for the radiotherapy videos with 109 test users yielded highly reaffirming results:

    • Comprehension rate of 79%

    • High overall satisfaction rate of 88%

    • Overall very positive feedback regarding video style and animation with 87% of participants rating the audiovisual animations as appealing

    To measure comprehension, for instance, participants were presented with questions covering each of the video's major content segments, such as indication, risks and course of treatment.

  • "Rarely seen such a good explanatory video (not lying!) Not too many animations, simple and easily recognizable pictograms. Appeals to both younger and older patients - in my opinion: great!"

    Patient, 2021

    "That's super cool with the education. At the moment this is an hour during which the patient understands very little. It's great that you can prepare them with pictures. It's ideal that you can put it together yourself, I didn't know that before.​"

    Doctor, 2021
