Equatel’s prescreening kiosks for emergency departments facilitate a more efficient and streamlined intake process.
Arriving at the emergency department, an ambulatory patient may approach the kiosk independently and enter their information.
During peak times or shift changes, instead of waiting for an onsite doctor, a patient can use the pre-screening kiosk to video consult with an emergency care physician who may advise more tests, prescribe medication or admit the patient.
Emergency departments all over the world are notorious for long wait times. Staff shortages and paperwork contribute to slower patient intake and overcrowding, which leads to overworked health professionals, stress and burnout.
Utilising Equatel’s kiosks effectively will reduce patient waiting times and overcrowding, relieving staff workloads and allowing them to focus on the next stage of care.
Equatel’s pre-screening solutions can also be custom-tailored for use in ambulances. While the patient is en route to the hospital, medical information is recorded automatically into the electronic health record so that emergency room staff are apprised before the patient arrives at the hospital.
