GetWellNetwork

Cook Children's GetWellNetwork® transforms the patients' in-room TV into an interactive resource. Families have access to important educational videos that help them learn more about their child's illness, care during their stay, how to prepare for discharge and any care that may be required at home.

The GetWellNetwork addresses the needs of the entire family and offers hotel-like amenities. You can access the Internet (including social networks), send emails, access a service request menu which provides delivery times for patient trays, information on local restaurants (including those that deliver), request a temperature change in your room and ask for spiritual counseling. All without ever leaving the room.

What it is

GetWellNetwork is a computer, TV and gaming system available in each patient room. It's an interactive resource for patients and parents that can be accessed through the TV in your room. You can view important educational information about your child's illness and treatment, and find age appropriate programs to help your child understand what's happening to them.

GetWellNetwork also puts information about Cook Children's, like visiting hours and staff profiles at your fingertips. A movie area with on-demand access to videos on health education for kids is available along with family-friendly movies. Key features include:

  • Education about illnesses – In an exclusive partnership with KidsHealth®, GetWellNetwork offers more than 160 education programs especially for kids.
  • Parental controls – Parents can restrict access to movies, games, TV, Internet, patient education assignments and more by using password protection.
  • Gaming options – Full web browser supports a multitude of online gaming sites.

Parental controls let you limit what your child can access.
