HCI’s Interactive BedMate Tablet TV –
Sara Heath, writing in PatientEngagementHIT, reports that
Bedside tablets contain a host of tools that help patients become acquainted with the hospital and their care teams, promoting a more positive experience during their hospital stay. She continues, “Bedside tablets can also improve the use of nurse call lights and call buttons.”
HCI offers key patient engagement features with the introduction of its Interactive BedMate Tablet TV.
Designed for a Better Patient Experience
To address the needs of both patients and providers, HCI offers the Interactive BedMate Tablet TV and the standard Interactive Bedside Tablet (no tuner) – touch-enabled bedside displays that answer the need for connection, information and entertainment. Working through MediaCare, HCI’s enterprise integration platform, the Interactive Tablets are an integral part of the HCI Interactive Patient Care solutions suite. The new BedMate Tablet TV and standard Bedside Tablets feature an ABS hospital-grade, infection control polymer shell that withstands frequent, thorough disinfection and cleaning to promote safety and patient engagement.
