Healthcare facilities are in a constant state of wanting to keep the patients informed and aligned. To ensure that this goal is done correctly they need to improve sharing of information between patients and nurses and keep front-line staff and patients better informed. A trusting relationship with patients and their families is built on open, honest communication.
There is a significant amount of evidence that shows the usage of whiteboards can meet the needs and goals of patient communication. HCI’s product line aligns with patient communication and was one of our focus when designing the Digital Whiteboard. One of the features of our whiteboard is that it is made from glass. Glass whiteboards are much more cost-effective than a traditional whiteboard. Our whiteboard is incredibly durable. Traditional whiteboard may cost half the price of a glass board, but you will be replacing a heavily used traditional whiteboard every 5-10 years, whereas a glass whiteboard will never stain or streak and there is no reason or need to replace it.
Whiteboard uses typically include scheduling, patient updates, care team information and more. Our innovative communication tool can enhance many of these functions and increase the efficiency of your staff. The Whiteboard display is built upon a series of Android Widgets. The data is populated by the EMR and the widgets are auto-populated, unlike other competing systems. Custom updates can be controlled through our interactive patient care software, MediaCare.

Whether it’s keeping track of patient schedules, seeing the progress of a particular patient, or even keeping track of your staff’s information, it’s clear why HCI’s whiteboards are a true necessity for any healthcare facility. Contact us today to get your free demo.
