Read Part 1: Integrating technology into healthcare
Facing new challenges and opportunities
Healthcare organizations are at the intersection of opportunity and challenge. Innovations in information technology drive unparalleled opportunities to improve caregiver performance and enhance patient care and engagement. One of the fundamental components to ensuring a smooth transition to HIT—or improving on an existing HIT infrastructure—is the selection of computer and device mounting equipment.

Read Part 2: Comparing mounting arms to other options
Make the best choice
In the fast-paced environment of health care, there’s no time to waste and no room for error. The design of a facility, with its fixed and moveable components, can have a significant impact on the health and safety of employees, patients, and families. Given their ready access, durability and slim design, mounting arms are a reliable partner in a landscape that offers little predictability.

Read Part 3: Choosing a mounting solutions company
Ask the right questions
Computer mounting solutions are a critical component of HIT infrastructure. To get the most from this investment, the mounting solutions must be demonstrably reliable, durable and backed by prompt attention to service requests. This begins with selecting solutions providers who understand health care—both its operations and its challenges. They should offer solutions, not products, and recognize that mounting arms are not just a tool, but an extension of patient care.

Match caregiver needs to hardware functionality
Selecting the right mounting solution takes time and research. It’s not a decision to be made overnight.
