Healthcare Touch Screens
The fast-paced environment of a hospital creates a distinct need for effective and intuitive technology. It can be critical for serving patients effectively and dealing with the realities of modern healthcare such as understaffing and high patient loads. The ability for doctors and nurses to react quickly can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.
With such importance placed on time, touch screens are uniquely positioned to assist both healthcare workers and patients on a variety of levels. Touch screens can be used as interfaces to the high resolution monitors that are already being used in medical imaging devices, as screens for patient kiosks and as a tool for improving the rehabilitation of patients.
- Medical Screens provide both workers and patients with a large volume of data, from appointment details to patient status updates. They make administrative functions easier to navigate, freeing up doctors and healthcare professionals to focus more on patient care. Monitors and screens are also important for many testing devices and scanning equipment, relaying essential images and information used in treatment and diagnosis. Equipping screens on MRI, X-Ray and ultrasound machines with touch capabilities can make imaging functions like annotation more efficient and accurate, giving a new level of control to healthcare professionals. They also make navigating images using gestures more intuitive, such as pinch to zoom, creating an enhanced and efficient workflow.
- Patient Kiosks streamline the check-in process, allowing patients to provide necessary data upfront and reducing the need for paper printouts and check-ins. This allows information to be filtered directly into back-end systems for easy access by the hospital or medical office, and reduces the need for additional staff members to handle an influx of patients. Touch screens make these kiosks more intuitive, allowing patients to use them even if they are not computer-savvy.
- Assistive Technology products help patients recover following an illness or injury, allowing them to resume normal functions on both a physical and cognitive level. Touch screens are great assets to rehabilitative efforts. They offer an easy to use interface that can adapt to different users’ capabilities, and engage a variety of senses that are essential in the rehabilitative process, including sight and sound.
Hospitality touch screen signage and kiosks can be used for restaurant and hotels.
