How IT Is Improving the Quality of Healthcare

Smart IT connected HOSPITAL

Exceptional doctors, caring nurses, and innovative hospitals have all been crucial to delivering the most effective healthcare. Now, information technology plays an essential role in improving the quality of healthcare – and Onyx Healthcare, the leading solution for medically focused computer design manufacturing, is developing new technologies to continue this vital mission.

Onyx Healthcare has developed technologies in five critical areas of patient care; all areas will be featured at their booth during The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in Las Vegas, Nevada from February 29th to March 4th, 2016.

Many of these areas create what’s known as the “Smart Connected Hospital”, where multiple departments are able to talk and share information without being held back by machinery or geography. For example, a pharmacy may be limited in how it can deliver better patient care, as the pharmacist can only access information that’s delivered and share via doctors and nurses. Now, with Onyx Healthcare technologies, pharmacies can use digital devices to instantly see and share a patient’s medications and dosages. This instant access can improve a patient’s care, while ensuring their medications aren’t put at risk.

The other areas of the Smart Connected Hospital include the following:

  • Mobile Electronic Medical Records: Nurses are limited by carts and other devices meant to share medical records; these older technologies are often clunky, heavy, and require significant manual labor. In order to “free” data the nursing station, Onyx Healthcare has developed new mobile EMR devices that allow for instant sharing across multiple departments and hospitals.
  • Operation Room: Onyx Healthcare has developed unique new technologies that assist nurses, doctors, and surgeons in their quest to deliver better patient care in pre or post- surgery. These medical devices facilitate communicate, allowing for efficiency without sacrificing quality of health care during critical surgical procedures.
  • Patient Recovery: Hospital readmission rates are often exacerbated by lack of patient engagement during recovery periods. To reduce these rates, Onyx Healthcare has developed innovative medical devices that deliver smart entertainment, news, and games, all while putting the patient’s care front and center for doctors and nurses.

Onyx Healthcare specializes in creating top-grade computing platforms that meet FDA and regional requirements, all while shortening a client’s design cycle.
