Application Story: Interactive Patient Information
To perform their jobs more effectively, doctors and nurses need immediate access to up-to-date information about their patients, and they don’t want to rely on paper records that can easily be lost or damaged. Additionally, an electronic information service that visitors could consult to find out where their loved ones are would greatly benefit hospital staff by freeing them from a time-consuming duty.
Using AAEON’s RICO-3288, the customer developed a comprehensive electronic information system. In patient rooms, each bed has its own display showing patient information including treatment details and the names of the attending doctor and nurse. The hardware also supports HMI technology which would allow hospital staff to directly update information on the panel.
Separate hallway displays show a complete floorplan including emergency exits. By tapping on a room, visitors can see if patients are in their room or whether they’ve been taken for a procedure such as an X-ray.
All displays receive real-time updates from a central controller and run on the Android 6.0 OS to deliver high-resolution images.
