BILLERICA, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–E Ink Holdings, “E Ink” (8069.TW), the leading innovator of electronic ink technology, today announced a digital paper device loaner program for Smart Hospitals.
As hospitals consider how to improve the patient experience, digitization has become a much higher priority. However, hospitals are looking for a solution that enhances the patient’s and health care professional’s communication, but contains no emissive light pollution and no blue light emissions, which can hinder the patient healing and sleep cycles. In addition, devices using E Ink’s Digital Paper can be installed in minutes with significantly lower installation costs.
Benefits of E Ink’s Digital Paper display solutions:
- Low power consumption – can be powered by batteries/PoE
- Low Requirement for data bandwidth
- Connect to EHR/EMR to show HIPAA compliant, “always-on” information
- Easy and low-cost installation
- No light pollution
“E Ink is very excited to launch the Device Loaner Program with our partners, Avalue Technology and DCI Healthcare Technology,” said Paul Apen, CSO of E Ink. “This program allows hospitals to easily deploy a test pilot in their facilities and evaluate the technology and its impact on their operations and patient/clinician experience.”
The number of devices for the program is customized by the needs of the installation, and are available for up to six months, depending on deployment needs. The program includes the following devices:
- 7.8″ Patient Room Door Sign / Patient Care Sign
