In-Room Computers and Wall-Mounted Proximity Systems Computer WorkStations Deliver Increased Efficiency; Improved Patient Care

the focus of the interaction to the background and becomes secondary.

Positioning Flexibility Improves Communication

To achieve the correct positioning in each room, Centerpoint turned to Proximity Systems, a national designer and manufacturer of wall-mounted, retractable hospital computer workstations based in Houston, Texas. HCA had conducted a product evaluation and Proximity Systems was selected as the vendor of choice for wall-mounted computer workstations for HCA hospitals in the Midwest.

Centerpoint opted for the Multi Compartment Computer Workstations using a combination of design options customized to their needs. The Multi Compartment series separates the flat panel monitor and keyboard from the PC. Computer equipment is protected behind the lockable upper (or lower) compartment door while the monitor and keyboard remain easily accessible. The WorkStation opens when needed and then closes to within inches of the wall freeing up valuable space. The swivel option allows face-face interaction even in tight spaces. "Many of our nurses, who initially weren't aware of the feature when we first opened, now like having that face-to-face interaction," says Pfeiffer. Centerpoint also selected an integrated med cabinet for patient safety and staff convenience.

The in-room hospital computer workstations from Proximity Systems are also scoring high with physicians according to Pfeiffer. She explains that they originally did not deploy access to the hospital's PACS on the in-room computers, but this was a subsequent and direct physician request. Now physicians use records and access to the PACS as a tool in their interactions for better patient education and understanding. The positioning of the computer screen, provided for by the Proximity WorkStation, allows the patient to view the screen comfortably during these in-room conferences.
