Patient-friendly tablet for information and entertainment

För information på svenska klicka på patientpad.se

Cost-effective solution for health care facilities and hospitals.

Nowadays information, communication and entertainment for patients at hospitals is limited; a radio, a bedsidephone, a TV in the break room…

Thanks to PatientPad® each patient can have an individual solution with telephony, information, numerous radio channels, TV, film and Internet services etc. in one easy-to-use bedside terminal. This means the patient can be offered a more comfortable and pleasant hospital stay. Control of bed lights and the patient’s alarm button can also be integrated with PatientPad®.

Easy to use, simple to install

PatientPad mounted on arm

PatientPad® is fitted with a touch screen with high resolution and brightness. The terminal and functions are managed via large physical buttons on the front. PatientPad® can simply be installed by the patient’s bed using any terminal bracket or stand with a standard VESA mount. The terminal is connected to a 110V/220V wall socket and links to the hospital’s data network via LAN (Ethernet) or Wi-Fi.

Features

Focusing on the patient

The terminal and its applications have been designed with the patient’s interests, circumstances and capabilities in
mind. It is very simple to use thanks to large and distinct buttons and an intuitive user interface. PatientPad® is also
suitable for patients who are not used to computers. Typical services that can be offered to the patient include a wide range of radio channels, online newspapers, TV, films, games, a personal telephone, and connection to
Facebook or Spotify.

PatientPad

A flexible, personal solution

PatientPad® is based on the Android operating system with over 500,000 applications available, thus enabling a
wide scope for individual solutions.

Faster and more updated information

PatientPad® also enables the hospital to offer a better information service over its data network, quickly and simply. The information might include lunch and dinner menus, pharmacy and library opening hours, a guide to the hospital, or where the nearest ATM is located etc. The easy-to access information also relieves burden off the hospital staff.

Designed for hospital staff and environments

The terminal has been developed to fit into the hospital environment, with a flat housing that is easy to keep clean and disinfect. A special function enables staff to reset the terminal quickly and prepare it for the next patient. If the patient wishes to use the telephony function for outgoing and incoming calls, a personal phone number is instantly generated and can be used immediately.

Functions

Applications

Accessible and intuitive

Typical applications and functions at a hospital are:

  • Telephony - An intuitive, easy-to-use IP phone application with large and distinct dial buttons.
  • Radio - Listen to radio channels from around the world. The basic function includes button short-cuts to Radio Sweden’s main channels, plus the ability to add other channels as Android applications.
  • News - Read the daily news from your country, or indeed the whole world, directly on screen.
  • Games - Add games to suit all ages. Thousands of game applications are available for Android. Memory, crosswords, card games, Sudoku, video games…
  • Internet - Log into your Facebook page or use your Spotify membership for music experiences. Or check the weather forecast for tomorrow.
  • Films - Watch one of the films available on the terminal or via on-demand services.
  • TV - It is also possible to watch one or more online channels. They could be news, TV series, live broadcasts or video on demand.
  • Information - Find out about today’s menu, opening hours of the pharmacy, library, hairdresser or other services at the hospital.
  • Medical and healthcare - Information about treatments, medicine, rehab, excercises, and about anything that will help the patient pre and post treatments.
  • Translations and communication - For example online tools for faster communication with patients with disabilities or patients who only speak foreign languages.

Technology and installation

PatientPad® simply connects to a standard 110V/220V socket or integrates with a new/existing healthcare panel. Immediately after start-up all local functions, such as games and film, are accessible. For IP-based basic functions such as telephony, radio, news and information, the terminal communicates over the data network via wireless Wi-Fi or LAN (wired Ethernet). Video IP services, such as TV and film, are also connected via Wi-Fi/LAN but require higher speeds in the local data network, particularly if there are many simultaneous users.

PatientPad® is IP55 compliant (protected against dust and can be washed/rinsed per the IP55 classification), which means it meets the high hygiene standards at hospitals.

PatientPad® is based on Android 4.0, the most widely used operating system. This makes it easy to adapt and develop new applications as needs change. It also provides access to a wide range of applications that are easily deployed over the Internet.
