IMD Health partners with leading health organizations and pharmaceutical brands to provide a wide variety of medically vetted, patient-friendly material. Working closely with these organizations, we curate easy-to-follow modules created by experts on the subject matter.

IMD Health also works directly with clinics and hospitals to create customized online health education experiences that combine the platform’s large library of existing content with clinic-specific tools and resources.

Health literacy is the capacity to seek, understand, and act on health information. Healthcare providers have a responsibility to promote patients’ health literacy through adequate education and engagement. Low health literacy usually means that healthcare provider communication is poorly understood, leading to insufficient self-health management and underutilization of available healthcare services. As a healthcare provider, proactively enabling patients to have more accessible interactions and fostering situations which promote understanding and well-being are crucial.
Healthcare providers have a duty to educate patients to make informed choices suited to their own unique scenario. In shared decision-making, both healthcare provider and patient are actively engaged in finding the optimal solution for care, ensuring medical informed consent on the part of the patient. This process is essential to the healthcare provider’s ability to adequately diagnose and treat patients, as well as the patient’s ability to accept or reject clinical evaluation or treatment. IMD Health enables shared decision-making by ensuring patients have a clear understanding of their condition and treatment options using easy-to-understand resources – able to be consulted in the office to illustrate concepts and encourage conversation, as well as emailed home to solidify the learning.
Wherever possible, we also offer resources catered towards different cultural and linguistic populations, helping to promote shared decision-making for all patients within the context of North America’s continuously diversifying cultural landscape.
In providing a valuable tool with which healthcare providers can more easily and efficiently communicate with patients, IMD Health strives to alleviate the issues contributing to, and resulting from, our increasingly burdened healthcare system. Within Canada, for example, poor access to healthcare in rural areas, language barriers and disenfranchisement in cultural minorities, and an aging population have increased the levels of chronic diseases and conditions requiring primary services, and have necessitated the need for more efficient and accessible communication between healthcare providers, patients and caregivers.1 By improving standards of provider-patient communication and patient engagement, IMD Health addresses these immediate needs while also supporting improved models of healthcare which focus on prevention, rather than treatment.
Establish your brand’s presence on the IMD platform to join in the conversation between healthcare providers and patients. With in-person lines of communication to healthcare providers becoming less prevalent, an integrated, omni-channel approach is needed to ensure your product remains top of mind. By working with IMD, you can instantly bring your materials to the consultation room of thousands of healthcare providers.Click here to find out more
