myUCLAhealth Bedside is a patient-facing, tablet-based app that provides patients with information and tools to help engage them more directly in their own healthcare. The app is available for patients admitted to an inpatient unit at UCLA Health during their hospitalization.
Among the features available via Bedside:
The app can be downloaded to the patient’s own iPad or Android tablet, or they can use the iPad provided in patient rooms. Additionally, patients with an active myUCLAhealth account will be able to review this information after discharge by accessing their online account.
To help you introduce your patients to Bedside, open the Bedside iPad and tap the icon to launch a 90-second video that informs patients about the value and benefits of participating in myUCLAhealth Bedside.
Please see myUCLAhealth Bedside Staff User's Guide to access a comprehensive guide for unit staff. The guide’s table of contents is clickable, making it easy to find and review important information about using Bedside. (You may want to download a copy of the User’s Guide to a computer at the front desk for easy access.)
One of the most important features of Bedside is the My Education activity, which displays for patients any videos or handouts assigned to them from the CareConnect Education activity. We will be adding new educational content frequently. Here is the current list of teaching titles with materials available for patients:
