    Websites

    Everyday-freedom.com

    This website is a helpful resource for patients who are considering sacral neuromodulation with the InterStim® System as a treatment option for bladder incontinence or bowel incontinence. There is a separate section for patients experiencing bladder incontinence and for those experiencing bowel incontinence.

    For bladder incontinence patients, there are three subsections: therapy education, support during the evaluation, and support for patients who have the implanted system.

    Therapy Education
    • Watch videos to hear what doctors and patients have to say about Sacral Neuromodulation
    • Track their bladder symptoms
    • Get answers to common questions, including the benefits and risks associated with Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy (delivered by the InterStim System)
    • Get matched with a patient volunteer to discuss their real-life experiences with the InterStim System
    For the Evaluation and Implant

    The other two sections require registration/login and provide resources to support patients before, during, and after their evaluation or implant. Patients gain access by providing their evaluation procedure date or implant procedure date.

    Video Prescriptions

    A tool called Vidscrip allows healthcare professionals to create videos using an Apple iPad® to inform and prepare patients before, during, and after in-person visits. Videos can be prescribed to patients to view anywhere, anytime, on any device. Since patients rarely remember all of the information they're told during an appointment, prescription videos can help patients recall important details, and they address different learning styles. With this free tool, sponsored by Medtronic, you can:

    • Improve practice efficiency
    • Improve health outcomes
    • Improve patient satisfaction

    Steps for creating video prescriptions are:

    1. Create your free account
    2. Launch the easy-to-use vidscrip builder on your iPad
    3. Record your answers to questions typically asked by patients

    After creation, the videos can be used to educate patients within the clinic or online. Videos can be posted on a clinician website or on YouTube.
