Signature HealthCARE chose the 22” ViewSonic VSD220 smart display because of its size, screen brightness and ease of use—not to mention the cost-effectiveness of the platform.
“We were paying about $1,800 per kiosk before and now we’re only paying about $400,” stated Easley. “That’s a savings of $1,400 per device, which equates to a $140,000 savings across 100 kiosks. Had this technology been available to us two years ago, we would have saved about $1.4 million.”
“Compared to the Windows® touchscreens, these monitors are faster, better and more affordable,” said Mike Easley, CIO. “Our goal had always been to move to a lower cost, better performance platform and we’ve been able to reach that goal.”
The switch also has a positive benefit on patient care.
“Because these units are faster than our previous ones, nurses are spending less time on documentation and more time providing hands-on care,” he said.
