The Wellflix Solution
The Wellflix self-care recovery video library consists of short (3 – 5 minute) videos that show the patient and/or caregiver how to improve the patient’s post-discharge recovery and avoid hospital readmission.
Wellflix videos are informed by decades of research in the effectiveness of video behavioral modeling.
Social Cognitive Theory, the observational learning science authored by Stanford professor Dr. Albert Bandura, has shown to be effective in changing patients’ behaviors across a range of healthcare issues. Wellflix co-founder, Dr. Peter Orton, studied with Bandura; hence, Social Cognitive Theory forms the foundation and design of every Wellflix video.
