iPad Kiosks and Digital Signage in Health Care

Familiar, accessible tablets are one of the first big steps in the path caregivers are on to fully digital clinics and hospitals. Going digital means reduced paperwork, streamlined communications, and an improved health care experience for both patients and caregivers.

It’s a big task, and health care providers have been starting with simplified solutions like iPad kiosks or digital signage using tablets housed and protected in Armodilo enclosures. Tablet kiosks streamline experiences, disseminate information, and ease the monotony of waiting rooms.

Medical environments are understandably sensitive about keeping surfaces clean and germ-free. Anti-microbial overlays can easily be installed on tablet screens, and Armodilo enclosures are easily wiped and sterilized. To learn more, see our case studies and inspirations page for great examples of iPad and tablet stands and enclosures in use.

Patient Check-in Kiosks

When a patient with an appointment arrives at a clinic or other patient care facilities, they can notify staff that they’ve arrived using counter and floor-mounted touch screen kiosks. Back-office system integration can notify or alert caregiver staff on a PC desktop display, phone, or tablet.

Tablet Enclosures for Waiting Area Management

Tablet Enclosures for Waiting Area Management

In walk-in facilities, tablet enclosures are being used to function as registration engines and wait list management. It’s a more modern version of asking people to take a number – with tablets able to gather more information at the front end – including time arrived, patient name and problem or interest. These systems also help ease frustrations through message boards that tell consumers where they are on wait lists.

Patient Room Information on Digital Signage

New-build hospitals embracing digital information are wall-mounting tablet displays outside patient rooms to provide caregivers and visitors with valuable information, often tied to Internet of Things sensors and patient management systems. Using tablet kiosks for digital signage lets a caregiver can see review important patient information at a glance which would otherwise be kept on paper records. Room visitors, arriving at the door and finding an empty bed, can see at a glance Mom or Dad is just down in X-rays.

Interactive Kiosks for Entertainment

Interactive Kiosks for Entertainment

In pediatric and family care settings, battered books and old toys are being replaced by kid-friendly tablets in rugged enclosures that are used to provide games and other entertainment. An interactive kiosk can preoccupy anxious children and pacify others that are bored and restless. Keeping the tablets secured in enclosures on table mounts ensures their longevity.
