Hospitals Implement Technology To Attract Patients

Hospitals Implement Technology To Attract Patients : " Some hospitals in California are implementing technology aimed at improving comfort in an effort to attract more patients, the San Fernando Valley Business Journal reports. For example, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in Valencia, three years ago implemented the Pyxis PatientStation, a touch-screen bedside computer system that provides patients with access to medical charts and discharge instructions as well as the Internet, e-mail and on-demand movies, radio and video games. Patients also can use the system's medical encyclopedia feature to research a specific condition. Physicians can use the system to view lab results, charts and X-rays. Physicians also can use the system to track and verify prescriptions by scanning a patient's wristband, the prescription and the nurse's thumbprint. "
