MEQUON, Wis., Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Connected Technology Solutions (CTS) has unveiled the world's first adjustable self-service healthcare kiosk in Booth 3184 at the 2011 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, the annual tradeshow for healthcare IT professionals in Orlando, Florida.
The new Patient Passport Express™ kiosk features an interactive touch screen module that moves with a 40" vertical range of screen adjustability, providing unprecedented access, convenience, and usability at a level never seen before in the industry.
Similar to airline check-ins, hospitals and medical facilities are installing automated self-service kiosks to help facilitate the check-in process and increase patient satisfaction. The easy-to-use kiosks save patients time, while increasing efficiencies and reducing overhead expenses for the facilities.
Already over 5 million patients have used CTS Patient Passport Express kiosks to:
- Check-in for appointments
- Update medical histories
- Verify insurance information
- Make credit card co-payments and bill payments
- Sign documents using an electronic signature pad
- Print HIPAA forms and other documents
ADA-compliant, the adjustable Patient Passport Express™ sets a new standard for kiosk functionality. The easy-to-move touch screen is as accessible to a person in a wheelchair as it is to a 6-foot tall person standing, and can be used by vision-impaired, hearing-impaired, or blind individuals, as well as those with limited dexterity. The anti-glare screen allows for use near large windows and skylights.
The new model is also a giant step forward aesthetically for healthcare kiosk design. Incorporating a sophisticated mix of materials and surfaces, the kiosks can be integrated into a facility's existing decor and branding with nearly infinite choices of customized textures and colors. The software and digital interface are also customized for each facility.
"CTS is known for its innovation," said CEO Sandy Nix. "Our engineers and designers are driven to create unequalled user experiences that continue to revolutionize the patient check-in industry."
