Florida Hospital in Orlando and St. Luke's Health System in Boise, Idaho, have begun pilot tests of customized versions of an application that enables the Apple iPad to view short interactive videos that explain common medical procedures.

The hospitals will test the Medical Video jLog product of Unity Medical Inc. in Boise. Florida Hospital will test videos with interactive Q&A that explain such procedures as CT scans and MRIs to children.

St. Luke's initially will test more than 20 videos for patients undergoing heart and vascular procedures, and physical rehabilitation. More information is available at unitymg.com.
