UC Health

The Challenge

UCHealth wanted to supply in-hospital patients with tablets so they could access their medical records, interact with their care teams, get online, download entertainment apps and connect with the outside world. But deleting personal data between patients took at least 45 minutes per tablet, making the process too burdensome for the nursing staff to manage. To make the project work, UCHealth needed a faster way to recycle the tablets.

Process reduced from 45 minutes to 90 seconds

The Results

“We liked what we were doing, but it wasn’t tenable in terms of how long it was taking for the nurses to really be able to use it. We were afraid we might lose momentum, so we turned to Samsung and said, ‘Hey, we love this, but we need some modifications.”
—Edward Horowitz, Senior Multimedia Developer of Clinical Informatics at UCHealth

Horowitz says their goal is to eventually offer an immersive patient experience where a tablet is just “part of the equipment in the room.” He explains, “That’s part of the way that we’re expanding this larger, and just having it really expand throughout our whole health system is our goal from there.” Explore cutting-edge healthcare technology in more depth by checking out our full line of healthcare solutions.
