The Interactive Hall Whiteboard Takes the Patient Wall Display to a Whole New Level
Patient wall displays in healthcare settings typically involve the use of magnets, sliders and paper flags, which can get misplaced or damaged. The Interactive Hall Whiteboard replaces that system with a HIPAA-compliant, high capacitive touch screen display, allowing Care Teams to update patient data with updates from the EHR, Nurse Call and other hospital technology systems with the touch of a key. The big capacitive touch screen has a lockout feature to prevent tampering, with access by Administrator password only. Patient data can be scheduled for secure clearing upon discharge, or manually as desired.
HCI offers a COVID-specific app for the Hall Whiteboard which can be set to display real-time vitals, such as Pulse Ox, SpO2, ECG Trace and Current Test Status.
CleanCall, HCI’s exclusive patient video app, allows clinicians and Nurses to video with patients from the Hall Whiteboard without having to enter the room. Staff members in the patient room and donned in PPE don’t need to doff their gear and exit the room if another Team member needs to reach them – just video through the Hall Whiteboard.
Align Communication for a Higher Degree of Care Delivery
The Hall Whiteboard increases staff efficiency and keeps team communication aligned real time. The Hall Whiteboard integrates with MediaCare, our enterprise-wide integration software, to provide automatic updates regarding patient status. The LED-illuminated frame corresponds with dome lights and displays a color-coded alert with elapsed time when an alert is triggered; multiple alerts stack on the display in order of priority. Whenever an update or rounding information is updated on a connected device, all interactive devices update with new information. Any changes made on the HCI devices automatically update to the EHR, and the Hall Whiteboard will reflect relevant updates.
A Real Time Record of Patient Care
Digital protocol and restriction “flags” are easily customizable with InfoTiles, which can be customized to your care standards and display upon Admittance from the EHR, such as “Fall Risk” and “NPO”. When integrated with the RTLS system, the Hall Whiteboard displays the name and photo of Care Team or staff members when they enter the room and when they leave the room, recording that entry/exit in the EHR and Visitor log to create a Round record. Visitor Status, Room Status and custom branding are easily added.
