In-Room Computers and Wall-Mounted Proximity Systems Computer WorkStations Deliver Increased Efficiency; Improved Patient Care
Date:10/13/2008

ying an important role in increasing efficiency at Centerpoint. "We are a new hospital with all private rooms," says Pfeiffer. "The rooms are also larger, so the steps between patients have increased for our nurses."

The option of using computers on carts to reduce the distance nurses walked was quickly dismissed. "We had a few mobile units in our (other) hospitals but found that they take quite a beating running up and down the halls," Pfeiffer explained. Proximity WorkStations, on the other hand, were proven in an independent study to reduce the distance nurses walk by up to 80% and since the units are stationary they do not place added wear and tear on the computers. The in-room computers and WorkStations eliminate the need to go back to the Nurse's Station to chart, get information or pick-up certain supplies. "The intent was to improve efficiency," says Pfeiffer. "I think hospital leadership would agree we've achieved that goal."

Efficiency and Aesthetics Move Throughout Hospital

Four hundred Proximity WorkStations have been deployed throughout Centerpoint from: patient rooms and the Emergency Department; to lounges and public areas. The space-saving benefits even lead to the WorkStations being used in the Human Resource Department where they allow candidates to apply online. After the candidate uses the computer, the Proximity WorkStation closes to within inches of the wall, freeing up valuable department space.

According to Pfeiffer, the look of the Proximity Computer WorkStations provided another benefit. "In opening this new hospital we were very in tune with everything related to design." The wood construction and custom finish of the Proximity WorkStations allowed Centerpoint to achieve the desired consistent look, complimenting the furniture throughout the hospital.

One Year Later

A year after opening, Centerpoint has seen the benefits envisioned during the 3-year planning and construction process, become a reali
