Intuitive interaction for healthcare applications

It will come as no surprise to hear that, like many other vertical markets, digital transformation is revolutionising the healthcare and medical market.

Technologies used in other verticals, such as retail, are finding their way into healthcare applications: chatbots, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, virtual reality (VR) and personalised mobile apps to name but a few.

From the cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) to telemedicine and VR, healthcare technologies open the door to new possibilities for keeping people healthier, streamlining clinical communication and improving the quality and efficiency of care.

Now that a digital environment is the new normal, technology continues to change the healthcare landscape. Starting with an increased expectancy of interactive technology present in healthcare facilities, there are many applications for self-service, personalisation and point-of-information where Elo’s touch solutions offer the perfect fit.

Elo touchscreens, touchcomputers, and interactive digital signs are designed to help deliver patient-centric services such as clinical workflow, entertainment, consultation, electronic medical records, and more.

Elo’s intuitive solutions deliver a large display to engage, inform and improve the patient experience beyond a typical hand-held mobile device no matter if the end user is using a stylus or wearing a rubber glove. Elo’s healthcare products are built to comply with technical standards for the safety, essential performance and effectiveness of medical electrical equipment.

The large interactive digital signage displays are used for wayfinding in large hospitals, and the open frame touchmonitors of various sizes are built into information kiosks. All-in-one touchcomputers like the 20 inch X-Series is suitable for self-check-in stations in hospitals, nurse stations and information points in pharmacies.

A range of healthcare-grade touchmonitors in sizes from 15- to 24-inch have been developed especially for the medical market, with compliance with multiple safety and electrical certification standards.

The healthcare touchscreen monitor family provides multiple mounting options to support most application uses, such as nursing stations, computer-aided therapy, electronic medical record keeping, paperless charting, patient self-check-in/registration or point-of-information installations.

The Elo touchmonitors are an effective solution for system integrators, value-added resellers and software developers to consider integrating into their healthcare applications such as nursing stations, computer-aided therapy, electronic medical record keeping, paperless charting, patient self check-in and registration or point–of-information installations, as well as non-medical applications that benefit from HDMI input, speakers and a pristine image display.

With Elo controlled design, users can expect long product life cycle and availability, important to maintain continuity through all phases of project roll-outs and servicing.
