The Tech Needed for More Contactless Hospitals, Healthcare
Hospitals in many regions across the U.S. are beginning to resume elective surgeries and develop a strategy to return some remote workers to the hospital. But it won't be an instantaneous move, and CIOs will be at the forefront to make processes in the hospital as contactless as possible.
The technology required to measure whether clinicians, staff, and patients entering the hospital are safe includes body temperature monitors and areas to clean mobile devices. Battle Creek, Mich.-based Bronson requires all employees to undergo electronic screening with an app before entering various locations and employing geolocation for patients as they arrive to consider whether patients should wait in their cars instead of the waiting rooms and adjust their response based on when patient rooms are available to minimize the number of people in the hospitals and clinics.
