To date the Animated Patient™ series has educated over 25+ million people worldwide.

The Animated Patient™ is a unique patient health education series which provides a novel approach to patient learning.


Our Mission

Our mission is to advance patient education and address the many barriers of health literacy by creating evidence-based visual formats of learning (animations, video segments, slide shows, infographics) for patients using multimedia and Web and mobile technologies.

Visual Learning: "Visuals have proven to be a valuable asset in building patient-physician communications, enhancing patient education, and improving the informed consent process because patients are better able to grasp the implications of their condition, prognosis, and treatment options.” 7
