We are developing solutions that empower healthcare facilities to proactively manage the overall experiences of their patients in ways that can have a direct impact on the bottom line.

Healthcare Information, the leading developer of interactive solutions aimed at improving patient care and enhancing patient experiences, has introduced the world’s first capacitive multi-touch Android television for use in a wide range of hospital, health system and clinic settings.

The Android BedMate with a 15” screen and swing-arm mount is the newest addition to Healthcare Information’s suite of Android televisions, applications and software that enables healthcare facilities to interact with patients on a variety of levels, ultimately putting providers in a stronger position to improve patient satisfaction, reduce readmissions and positively impact the bottom line. For example, as a result of turning to Healthcare Information, hospitals and health systems can improve their patient satisfaction scores to earn back Medicare reimbursements that are being withheld under Value-based Purchasing.

The BedMate is easy to install and sets a new standard in low-power, swing-arm televisions with a number of features, including user-friendly capacitive touchscreens that are akin to working with a mobile phone or tablet. It has an easy-to-clean, infection control all-glass front design, whispering wall speakers, rounded corners for patient safety, USB clone for fast and easy setup and Wi-Fi capability, among other benefits.

The BedMate also is compatible with Healthcare Information’s MediaCare2, a software platform that serves as the cornerstone of its interactive patient care solution.

“In today’s world of pay for performance, hospital and healthcare systems are recognizing the value of demonstrating measurable improvements in patient satisfaction,” said John Pratt, president at Healthcare Information. “We at Healthcare Information are developing solutions that empower healthcare facilities to proactively manage the overall experiences of their patients in ways that can have a direct impact on the bottom line.”

Healthcare Information’s entertainment options and educational tools save nursing and medical staff valuable time in managing the patient experience. In addition, Healthcare Information’s solutions are scalable, as hospitals and health systems can purchase, install and integrate key components within their budgets and timelines.

Among Healthcare Information’s solutions are:

  • Android Televisions, such as wall mount models and the BedMate, which provide Internet access and apps for entertainment, dietary information, service requests and educational materials. Hospitals and health systems may survey patients via Android technology in real time, identify areas of concern, and immediately notify respective departments for corrective action.
  • MediaCare2, a software platform that is compatible with the Android televisions, enables healthcare facilities to deliver in-depth educational and post-hospital care information to patients, easily document the delivery of such materials and help patients achieve healthier outcomes.
  • Remote, centralized control of Android televisions and MediaCare2, which increases efficiencies for nursing and medical staff while ensuring consistent delivery of health-related messages and information.
