2 Goal Share our experiences helping offices and hospitals pick and place computing equipment with the intent of improving patient care and keeping providers happy.

4 Patient’s Home Access to chart and relevant health information Reception Patient kiosk Front desk Now – Electronic signature pad, Barcode printer, multipurpose scanner, camera Future - ??? (ask Paul Matthews ) Phone integration… Lots of peripherals = lots of USB ports Front desk is getting crowded! Exam room Placement is paramount Thin clients are OK Work with provider to fine tune placement by room Wall mount, cabinet, counter, or cart Charting station Workflow and office infrastructure dictate placement Single purpose system Provider’s Home Access to EHR and other office tools Ambulatory Office – Focus Areas
