Healing HealthCare Systems Celebrates 20th Anniversary of the C.A.R.E. Channel
August 1, 2012 — Healing HealthCare Systems is celebrating its 20-year anniversary of producing the premier evidence-based 24-hour relaxation patient television programming, The C.A.R.E. Channel (Continuous Ambient Relaxation Environment).
The C.A.R.E. Channel, which features stunning nature imagery accompanied by original instrumental music, has been shown to reduce the negative impact of hospital noise, enhance pain management protocols, and optimize the patient experience. C.A.R.E. with Guided Imagery, a supplement to The C.A.R.E. Channel, provides guided narratives specifically for the inpatient setting and diverse levels of acuity.
More than 700 leading hospitals, hospices, and long-term care providers turn to The C.A.R.E. Channel to create highly effective healing environments that benefit patients, families, and staff. Customer retention is over 94%, and the number of C.A.R.E. subscribers continues to grow.
“At a time when healthcare providers are more dependent than ever on creating the highest levels of patient satisfaction for their funding, The C.A.R.E. Channel and C.A.R.E. with Guided Imagery are used by clinical staff to achieve their goals in providing the best patient care,” said Susan Mazer, Ph.D., President and Co-Founder of Healing HealthCare Systems.
“For 20 years, C.A.R.E programming has transformed care at the patient’s bedside by promoting restfulness and sleep, supporting pain management modalities, reducing noise and stress, and improving patient satisfaction,” she continued. “We continue to look for new ways to improve the patient experience.”
