Mediasation Selected by Greenville Hospital System to Develop Interactive Kiosks for Turrentine Heart Education Center

Mediasation, a Greenville-based web development firm, has been selected by Greenville Hospital System to develop software for six interactive kiosks at the Turrentine Heart Education Center. Announced on February 23, 2007, the Turrentine Heart Education Center will feature museum-quality interactive displays, a library, online research, health assessment programs, amphitheater and children’s area with age-appropriate information about heart disease. As one of only two hospital-affiliated heart education centers in the nation, it is expected to attract upwards of 10,000 visitors per year, including students, the community at large, patients and their families.

Powered by Mac Minis and touch-screen displays, the kiosks host videos, presentations, and interactive games that help inform and educate visitors about heart procedures and ways to maintain a healthy heart. The center’s Kid’s Corner also includes games promoting healthy eating. The interactive kiosks will be instrumental to the center in not only creating an interactive experience for center visitors but will also offer them the ability to preview a handful of DVDs available in the center library and view various presentations.

“The Turrentine Heart Education Center showcases the latest advances in cardiac care and cutting-edge technologies used at GHS, and we wanted to partner with a development firm that would help us present the center at the highest levels,” says Gina Turcotte, director with the Heart Institute at the Office of Philanthropy and Partnership. “We have worked with Mediasation on a number of projects, and their work is second-to-none. Their involvement was a natural fit for us.”

The initiative will be an important tool in the prevention, early detection and rehabilitation essential to win the fight against heart disease. As such, it will be a leader in heart education for South Carolina
