ORLANDO—Through an interactive patient care system developed by GetWellNetwork, run on Dell Healthcare and Life Science’s hardware and deployed by Dell Services, hospital patients can access valuable information and services that are designed to improve their hospital stay and also make the delivery of care more efficient and consistent for caregivers. The companies announced the partnership at the 2008 HIMSS conference.

Using Dell’s OptiPlex PCs and its PowerEdge servers, the GetWellNetwork system provides patients with an interactive resource through their bedside television monitor. Patients can use a wireless keyboard or other handheld devices to navigate the GetWellNetwork system to access education, communication and entertainment tools, according to the companies. 
Dell Services handles the program management, installation and support, including customizing the hardware in the Dell factory and managing the deployment at individual hospitals.
