Frequently Asked Questions
- How is X-Plain for Home Health used?
During an in-home visit, the healthcare provider can select a topic on the tablet and then do other administrative work while the patient completes the tutorial. If the provider wants the patient to see a specific section, the provider can select it from the tutorial menu or advance the video to that section. If a tablet is not available, the provider could instead leave the patient with a prescription code to a specific title that can be accessed on the home health agency’s website.
- How long is a tutorial?
A tutorial takes an average of 12 minutes to complete. If a patient wants to read faster than the narrator, the patient can mute the program, which speeds up the presentation. Patients can also skip sections they already know about, such as the anatomy, symptoms, and diagnosis sections.
- Do I need any hardware to use the product?
You need a device to display the programs. We recommend an iPad or Android tablet because X-Plain can run on them without an internet connection. A laptop would also work, but an internet connection is needed.
If you want to print a handout for the patient, you will need access to a mobile printer. Alternatively, you can pre-print the desired documents before the home visit.
If you want to prescribe the education for the patient to complete on their own, the provider does not need any hardware, but the patient does.
- What topics are included?
Clients can select as many titles as they need. Our basic home health library includes 60 topics covering senior health and chronic disease management. Contact us for a full list of titles.
- What format(s) does each topic come in?
X-Plain for Home Health provides interactive multimedia tutorials, videos, and a hybrid between the tutorial and video. In the tutorial, the patient must touch the screen to advance to the next slide and answer questions to continue. The video proceeds without user input. The hybrid version advances without user input, like a video, until it reaches a question. After the question is answered, the program continues.
- How often is the content updated?
We review the content of each topic every two years. We update the content as needed in each educational format and all three languages.
- How do I receive content updates?
If the client uses a tablet, they must first go to a Wi-Fi zone; there is an update button in the settings menu that clients push to receive content updates. If the client uses a laptop with internet connection, the update is automatic.
- What is the learning curve for healthcare staff using X-Plain?
X-Plain for Home Health offers an intuitive, easy-to-use interface with a minimal learning curve. The provider should know which topics they have licensed so they can choose the appropriate one(s). Providers can also search by keyword or browse the menu to find the topics they need.
- What is the learning curve for patients and caregivers using X-Plain?
X-Plain tutorials are very easy to use. The patient simply swipes left to move forward and right to move backward. To answer a question, the patient touches the answer. To skip to a different section, the patient touches the name of that section in the menu.
- Can I customize the content with the name and logo of my healthcare institution?
Yes, we place the name of the client on each page and the client's logo on the first page.
