Swarm Interactive's Web-based ViewMedica patient education system helps doctor practices inform their patients and potential patients about their medical services. ViewMedica's library includes 800 animations covering the most common procedures and conditions in orthopedics, neurological care, cardiovascular surgery, ENT, pain management, ophthalmology, complementary medicine, and more.

The ViewMedica content aims to provide clear visuals and concise narration to convey complex information quickly to patients. Each animation also comes with a printable full-color brochure that includes practice contact information to help with referrals. ViewMedica also can be viewed on iPads, iPhones, and other tablet and smartphone devices.

Swarm Interactive says ViewMedica can be added to any practice's website in minutes. A browser-based administration area allows medical practices to customize their ViewMedica viewer and manage its content. ViewMedica's color scheme and other settings can be adjusted to better match a site's design and a practice's needs. Practices can select only the animations they want available to their patients.
