Technology is always evolving, which means that staying on trend can take more time and effort than you have available. When it’s time to invest in new technology for your healthcare facility, how do you know which products will improve the patient experience and save money, and which are unnecessary? Remember: Technology should help you solve a problem, not create more! Click To Tweet
Healthcare Technology That Helps
Today’s technology has created a level of interconnectedness that encompasses everything, including healthcare facilities. Here are 3 ways technology can help set your facility apart:
- Interactive Displays
- Cloud Computing
- Smartphones & Tablets
1) Interactive Displays
Sharp AQUOS BOARD® interactive display systems provide an ideal digital solution for collaborative meetings, video conferencing, live data and interactive digital signage in a healthcare setting. With this tool, organizations can communicate, collaborate and disseminate information in real-time. This is crucial in high stakes medical situations where every second counts.
2) Cloud Computing
Cloud computing makes accessing and sharing documents fast and secure. More and more healthcare facilities are investing in tablets and other devices to access patient charts electronically. This eliminates the need to shred a large amount of paperwork, or risk patient information falling into the wrong hands. Healthcare staff can also print remotely, eliminating the need to walk back and forth from the office printer.
3) Smartphones & Tablets
Smartphones and tablets are starting to replace traditional monitoring systems, and many people are getting the chance to undergo a full consultation in the privacy of their own home. Advancements in healthcare technology have contributed to services being taken out of the confines of hospital walls and integrating them with user-friendly, accessible devices. Excellent MFP models for this environment include Sharp’s MX-B350/450W and MX-350/450P, both of which print 35/45 pages per minutes and include the Sharpdesk® Mobile app to enable scanning and printing from mobile devices.
Faster Decision Making
Technology is used for diagnosis and treatment of the patient, but now decisions are being made much more quickly about how to care for the patient based on information captured by devices.
Talk to Your IT Staff
Consulting your IT staff or consultants is an important first step when you’re considering new technology. The IT department can provide valuable information on the capabilities of your servers and other systems, provide advice on security and offer vendor suggestions in some cases.
