Efficiency: Harnessing the high performance and integrated graphics features of the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor with a TDP of just 17 watts, Avalue has addressed both patient experience and the hospital’s need for greater efficiency in one complete solution. Their fully integrated hardware/ software package is hospital ready and easy to integrate into the existing hospital network and clinical practice setting.
With everything connected, integrated and delivered at the point of care, healthcare practitioners can easily look up everything they need to know about the patient’s health record and treatment program and share diagnostic information with the patient. They can update the medical record on the spot, prescribe treatment and diagnostic procedures, or order medication. Everything can happen while the provider is in the room, reducing distractions from other patients and hospital activities and enabling greater efficiency in movement. The result is a much more timely and efficient program for helping patients get better, and
Remotely accessible: With an integrated camera, speakers, microphone, and other peripherals it’s possible to set up a networked connection to care providers down the hall or even in another building. This enables a face-to-face consultation between patient and doctor via the screen, creating a more efficient way to communicate regarding routine services or answer quick questions. Other hospital services such as room-service style meal ordering can take advantage of this capability to further improve the patient experience.
Reduced anxiety: The more connected and informed they feel, the less anxious patients will be, leading to faster healing. Access to the Internet enables patients to communicate more easily with faraway friends and family. They can even do their own research about their illness – giving them a sense of empowerment that contributes to healing. Live video consultations with providers can feel much like a face-to-face visit without having the practitioner be present in the room. Choosing from a wide library of multimedia entertainment and gaming options enable them to engage in distracted behavior that reduces anxiety.
