more than just entertainment

This is Playwell

Playwell by GameChanger is a completely new entertainment, learning and social experience — accessible on any device, anywhere in the hospital. Get the latest movies, live streams from popular content creators, songs, music videos and games — all carefully curated for hospital patients and their families.

Playwell creates a safe space for patients and families by enabling a walled-garden experience through a combination of privacy, curation, and moderation.

Playwell is more than just entertainment — Playwell is clinical content, so patients and their families can stay informed about their care, as well as general educational and tutorial content from trusted providers. And more – like, a whole lot more.

Child Life Lead

Playwell is built to be the ultimate diversion from the discomfort, anxiety and boredom of a hospital stay.

Playwell has been specifically designed to address four gaps that exist within the patient experience:

  • Social isolation
  • Infrequent learning opportunities
  • A lack of safe and stimulating content
  • Dull and confusing clinical content

By focusing on exclusive curated content and an innovative technology platform that lets patients, families, and caregivers access content from any device, anywhere in the hospital, Playwell is uniquely positioned to improve the patient experience and increase patient satisfaction.

Playwell creates a safe space for patients and families by enabling a walled-garden experience through a combination of privacy, curation, and moderation. Inside this walled garden we provide opportunity for entertainment, play, learning, and socializing – fostering a sense of community and togetherness through safe and meaningful interactions.

SAFETY + TRUST
Patients and families can be confident that they will not be exposed to inappropriate material or behavior, while hospitals can trust the content being displayed in their facility.

SOCIAL
Human interaction, which is a leading indicator for patient satisfaction, is built into our platform through real-time chat, live streaming, and community experiences.

Easy Patient Setup

Playwell uses a BRING-YOUR-OWN-DEVICE model that reduces support and maintenance costs, while allowing patients to consume content on devices that are most comfortable to them. After Playwell has been implemented, anyone in the hospital can consume content anywhere in the hospital without worrying about wires or restrictive hardware.

To get started, connect to the hospital Wi-Fi network.

Then just open a web browser and go to the provided URL.

If you’re using a hospital-supplied tablet you can click the icon on the home screen.

Complete the brief registration and begin playing, learning and socializing.
