Share the knowledge.
Watch and share heart information with your friends and family - email articles and screen shots of the interactive animation and videos.
Talk with your doctor.
Knowledge is power! Understanding how your heart works lets you and your doctor speak the same language. Together, you can make plans for your treatment based on greater understanding of the risks and benefits.
"The concept is great, especially the one on coronary atherosclerosis... I believe animations are much easier for patients to understand than still images printed on fliers or even the “canned” printouts from my EMR we are required to give out as part of meaningful use criteria."
