HCI Digital Whiteboards vs. Traditional Dry Erase Boards

The dry-erase board found in every hospital unit and patient room is a long-standing communication tool used to display patient assignments, contact information and critical clinical information.

In a typical twenty-five bed unit, it is not uncommon for fifteen admissions, transfers and discharges to take place daily. Updating dry erase boards is just a small part of  the ADT task list, and remembering information on the boards can be confusing for patients dealing with an onslaught of instructions. Information and instructions on dry erase boards can get missed or accidentally erased. A patient’s status may change at any time – and so must the board. Caregiver assignments change multiple times per day – and so must the board. With so many moving parts, it is simply not possible to keep information on dry erase boards up to date. How can you make that process more efficient and maximize the return on your investment?HCI, HCI TV, ROI, Innovative, Patient Engagement, Patient Satisfaction, Patient Education, Patient Safety, Lower Operating Costs, HCAHPS, CMS, RTLS, EMR, EHR, ADT, Hub, BedMate, Interactive Hall Whiteboard, HCI RoomMate, Digital Whiteboard, Interactive Whiteboard, CareApps, Android Integration, Nurse Call System, Health-Key Keyboard, Task Saturation, Decreased Readmissions, Interactive Patient Care, Patient Education, Patient Satisfaction, Patient Engagement, Ambulatory, Cross-Continuum Care, Digital Health, Health Information Technology, Health Technology, Clinical Workflow, Patient Safety, Healthcare Communication, Acute Care Nurse Call Systems, Post-Acute Care Nurse Call Systems, Clinic Patient Flow Systems, Senior Living Emergency Call Systems, EMR Integrations, hospital grade TV, HCI televisions, HCI TVs

Fortunately, today’s hospital information systems track the majority of this information. HCI Digital Whiteboards integrate with patients’ electronic health records (EHR) and other hospital information systems to update automatically in real-time, accurately and in an easy-to-read format. We can assist you with ROI calculations for fiscal management to see which system configurations work best for you.

Digital whiteboards are a perfect model for hospital technology adoption because they are faster, less expensive, more accurate and improve communication between patients and staff.  The return on investment is much more rapid than you might think.
