Patient Infotainment Terminals are bedside terminals that allow patients to do anything from watching movies and TV, to making phone calls, to playing games or communicating via the Internet. They can also be used for email, web browsing, accessing hospital intranets, or, if medically advisable, even work. Infotainment terminals can also be used to alert staff, call for help, and operate beds, lighting, and other devices.
Infotainment terminals can be used not only by patients, but also by medical staff and care givers. The latter may use them to look up electronic patient records, lab results, tests, monitor vital signs and their signals, document observations and changes, and more. To facilitate those functions, PITs may include RFID, digital cameras, and smart card readers for data capture and identification purposes.
This is a single integrated medical solution that provides digital entertainment, clinical services as well as communication to the point of care.

The built-in webcam, along with internet access, can help a patient stay connected while she or he is away from work and family.
The benefits to hospitals
Increase working efficiency:
Medical staff can perform patient care while accessing and updating a patient’s medical records right at the bedside, reducing paperwork and possible transcription errors.
Improve data accuracy:
The onboard RFID module can be activated for accurate medicine tracking and patient medical record access, reducing patient identification errors.
Achieve rapid ROI:
