About this project

The problem we solve:
Immobility during hospitalization is responsible for a number of conditions that add to the morbidity and mortality of hospital patients. More recently, "post-hospital syndrome" has been recognized as an important contributor to 30-day readmission rate and general functional decline in recovering patients. Recent studies of hospitalized populations indicate that up to 83% of patient’s time is spent in bed. Complications of bed rest include increased incidence of deep venous thrombosis/pulmonary embolism (DVT/PE), pneumonia, and loss of skeletal mass. This all leads to increased morbidity and healthcare expenditure.
About our solution:
Pretty much all hospitals in major metropolitan areas have television sets in patient rooms. We propose to produce exercise videos, similar to the ones used by the airline industry. These videos will be aired several times during the day on channels that are available to every hospitalized patient free of charge. Patients will be instructed to follow along and participate in exercises that can be performed from their beds or chairs. These videos will be motivational, engaging and empowering. The goal is to get the patients moving, as much as possible.
Progress to date: Complete conceptualization of the idea and market research.

How We Help Patients

Patients will be able to view engaging, educational and empowering videos that explain the importance of movement on their roadway to better health. These videos will serve an educational purpose and also engage the patients physically by showing them ways to move while in bed or in their chairs on in their rooms. This will lead to lower rates of deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism (DVT/PE), pneumonia, and loss of skeletal mass. The end result is better educated, healthier patients. This will promote patient safety and lower healthcare costs.

How We Help Physicians

Physicians will benefit from this endeavor as well. There will be lower rate of hospital-acquired complications and readmission rates.

Challenge Mission

Mission: We at HEALTH-ripples want to empower and educate the patient. It is our sincere belief that by providing patients with engaging, empowering and educational tools we will promote better health in the world. This will in turn lead to better physician – patient interaction and foster the trust that is so ever important in the healing qualities of all physicians.
Use of funds: We will use the funds from the AMA Innovation challenge to create a video featuring fitness therapists in hospital bed, chair or room settings. It will be an engaging Spanish and English instructional video. The funds will also be used to setup a pilot in a busy NYC Metro hospital and carry out an analysis of reduction of morbidities and readmission as a result of the viewed video. A study proposal has already been written.
Intellectual Property Status: Submitted for institutional review board. Pending.
FDA Status: NA
Personal Message: There are already a lot of excellent projects posted on the AMA website. Each one of them is tackling some sort of need and trying to solve a unique problem. Excellent patient care in the 21st century means patient having to participate in their own health. By providing our hospitalized patients with engaging exercise videos we will empower them to improve their own health. We seek your vote and support to allow us to make our idea a reality. This is the golden solution in the often- busy, overc
