Frequently asked questions

For more information about how online education videos work, take a look at the information below, covering frequently asked questions about our online video platform.

What are the benefits of video education?

Knowing more about your care and conditions may help you improve your health. The short, easy-to-watch, 2-3 minute videos in the Digital Patient Education Center make it easy to learn more than ever before. Plus, the videos are designed to help you remember what you learn.

What are recommended videos?

Recommended videos are videos personalized to you and your health conditions. They’re a great place to begin when getting started with patient education videos. Over time, your Rush providers will add additional recommended videos or content to your recommended video section so you will have additional opportunities to watch videos about a variety of health topics in the future.

I was asked to complete a survey before watching videos. Is the survey required?

Patients who are eligible for certain content and programs will have the opportunity to participate in a survey to help us learn more about our patients. You are not required to take the survey. If you decline the survey, you may still watch videos.
