MEDI+SIGN®, a provider of fully-automated patient monitoring and intelligent digital whiteboard display solutions, proudly announced today that a new solution for Emergency Departments (ED) has been added to their portfolio. Housed in a smaller package to fit in the tight space in Emergency Department examination rooms, and with a simplified pallet of information available to the patient, the Digital Exam Room Whiteboard solution is engineered to be most effective for information needed during the short period of time the patient will be in the examination room.
“We are always looking for ways to innovate in the healthcare space and I feel that we answered a major need with the Digital Exam Room Whiteboards,” says Andrew Hoffman, President of MEDI+SIGN. “Our Digital Patient Room Whiteboard solution has already demonstrated the impact that our technology can have on a hospital’s HCAHPS scores and workflow efficiency. Since our MEDI+SIGN platform is flexible and can be adapted to most domains within the hospital environment, the Emergency Department was the missing piece and now I am proud to say that we have a whole solution.”
Each examination room in the ED is equipped with MEDI+SIGN’s digital exam room whiteboard display that communicates important information to patients and their families about their care. The simplified information and alerts are presented to patients in real-time and include their care team with pictures, role and name, diet, patient location, discharge status, average test time, radiology tests ordered, average lab time, and lab status. This information is pulled and displayed automatically from the hospital’s EHR (Electronic Health Record), and other systems. Other features include automatic dimming for patients who require limited light in the exam room, custom furniture-grade enclosures that are made to match the aesthetics of the exam room and a psychiatric room model that features a low profile enclosure and protective lexan face that adheres to best practices for psychiatric patient safety.
