at Your Fingertips
Today's healthcare professionals are seeing a growing number of patients with diverse cultural backgrounds, and understanding their particular needs is critical. The more you know about someone's healthcare beliefs or practices, the more your care and treatment plans can be designed for the best health outcomes possible: Those which take into account your patients’ world view.
CultureVision™ is the first comprehensive, user-friendly database that gives healthcare professionals access to culturally competent patient care. Nothing to install. Nothing to download.

How Does CultureVision Work?
It's as simple as 1-2-3. Let's say a Chinese patient comes into labor and delivery. A nurse wants to know if there are any specific cultural traits or patterns that they should know about. What are the pertinent questions to ask? Any medications, or diseases that are particularly relevant to this group? The nurse simply logs onto the CultureVision website. Next, click on to the Chinese section and finally click “Labor, Birth and Aftercare.” Just that quickly you have the information you are looking for, and within minutes you are contributing to a better healthcare experience for the patient.
