Elo Touchscreens Improve Healthcare

Elo healthcare grade desktop touchmonitor

Elo Touch Solutions (Elo), the original inventor of touchscreen technology, will be exhibiting at Medica 2013, November 20-23 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Elo’s portfolio of healthcare touch solutions includes touchscreens, touchcomputers, interactive digital signage and mobile tablets,designed to help deliver patient-centric services such as clinical workflow, entertainment, consultation, electronic medical records, and more. Integrated near field communications (NFC) and radio frequency identification (RFID) on the Elo healthcare portfolio enable new security authentication methods for doctors, nurses, and other care providers.

Elo’s healthcare products are built to comply with technical standards for the safety, essential performance and effectiveness of medical electrical equipment. The recognized quality and reliability of Elo touch-based products results from a design that incorporates easy to read displays and responsive touchscreen interfaces, with a sealed casing that protects against liquid splashes. This allows the display to continue operating accurately even when subjected to water drops or other substances. Equally at home in a busy clinic or waiting room, Elo touchscreen products can be activated with a finger, rubber-gloved hand, or stylus—all common in healthcare settings.

“Healthcare institutions directly benefit from intuitive touch technology, both for enhancing the patient experience and for improving care provider efficiency” said Servaas Kamerling, Elo Touch Solutions EMEA president. “Medical device manufacturers and healthcare providers rely on our technology, reliability and decades of experience to optimize their customers’ experience”.

Showcased at Medica is one of the latest Elo innovations, the Elo Tablet. This is a tablet with all the centralized management and security capabilities of the Microsoft®Windows® environment, in a commercial form factor that reduces theft risk. This ruggedized tablet is developed for professional use with protective housing designed to survive drops (tested to MIL-Standard 810G), IP54 sealing (back and front) protection against dust and water, fan-less processor, and a removable battery. The Elo Tablet docking station provides additional connectivity, a battery charging location, and a physical security lock. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and RFID allow for wireless communication and identification.

The latest addition to the Elo range of healthcare touchmonitors is the new 2401LM, a fully featured 24-inch desktop touchscreen which provides stable, drift-free touch response, outstanding image clarity and full HD resolution. The 2401LM touchmonitor is an effective solution for nurse stations, computer-aided therapy, electronic medical record keeping, paperless charting and patient self-check-in. It is the largest size in the Elo healthcare touchscreen family. Elo desktop touchscreens feature a stable stand with tilting functionality; VESA mounting options; cable management and cable fastening features to prevent accidental disconnection; and an IPX1 drip-resistant housing.

For installations inside the patient halo, the VuPoint™ touchcomputer delivers patient centric services such as entertainment, information and access to electronic medical records. It is a flexible, fully-featured system, with multiple options available to expand its usage and configurations. The slim, light-weight touchcomputer has built-in handles to easily move the unit while attached to a mobile cart, swing arm, over a bed, or alongside a treatment chair. Featuring a seamless, zero-bezel multi-touch touchscreen, the modern design will blend in with the most sophisticated hospital surroundings. The VuPoint M-Series platform is available in 15-inch and 19-inch wide-screen sizes with computing configurations based on fan-less Intel® processors.

Elo Touch Solutions broad product portfolio also includes large format Interactive Digital Signage displays for applications like hospital way-finding, check-in kiosks, and interactive information boards. The new 42-inch 4201L medical white model is a slim, professional-grade touchscreen with integrated computing options that comply with ADA and IBC requirements of less than 4-inch protrusion for wall-mounted devices.

Elo Touch Solutions will exhibit at booth 15D33 in Hall 15 at Medica 2013.
