Experience the future of LDRP care with our innovative Labor, Delivery, Recovery & Postpartum Digital whiteboards.

These cutting-edge digital whiteboards offer a seamless touch interface and promote collaboration and self-service, making patient care more efficient than ever before.

Labor and Delivery Nurses, working in collaboration with obstetricians, play a crucial role in providing personalized care to expectant mothers. It is essential to capture all the relevant information during a mother's stay, especially during shift changes. HCI digital whiteboards offer a simple touch interface and seamless integration with existing hospital systems to facilitate this process. With configurable layouts, managing room availability and staff scheduling becomes easier for Charge Nurses and Unit Managers.

Did you know that digital whiteboards can be customized for all phases of LDRP?

Having up-to-date information about a patient's progress is vital for their well-being. In OB departments, uniform care for both mothers and infants depends on timely updates before, during, and after the birth process. By displaying important patient data for both mother and newborn side by side, split screen layouts enable caregivers to navigate care plans and discharge instructions more efficiently. Furthermore, configurable digital whiteboards can be utilized in NICU units to monitor the baby's progress, while video monitoring adds an extra layer of safety in NICU and LDR units.


The split touch screen displays information about the mother and newborn side by side, with a dedicated page for the mother's antepartum data.

It is crucial for mothers to receive proper education and information about their labor and delivery process. Additionally, they should be well-informed about schedules and care for the newborn. To ensure a smooth transition from the hospital, providing prescribed educational content can help the new family understand what to expect and how to promote the healthy growth of their baby. It is important to offer a wide range of video content in multiple languages for better accessibility. Translators should also be readily available as needed. Luckily, supplementing existing education programs with digital content makes it easy to provide the new family with the necessary information for a successful transition to home.

In addition to the mother, partners and family members also need access to the most up-to-date information so they can pass along delivery status updates to loved ones. MediaCare offers convenient options for bedside meal ordering and even retail or gift shop ordering. At discharge, families also have the option to have their prescriptions automatically filled before leaving the facility, right from their room.
