In a recent interview with Healthcare Finance News, Ginny Torno, executive director of IT Clinical Systems and Innovation at Houston Methodist, discusses how smart hospital rooms save the amount of time nurses need to be at bedside as a preview to her presentation at HIMSS24.

Houston Methodist has collaborated with eVideon to help support their smart room initiative. They have implemented eVideon's Vibe Health solution into 32 rooms at their Houston Methodist West location. The Vibe Health solution includes:

  • Aware digital door signs on iPads with lights provide dynamic real-time notifications and alerts to improve communication and efficiency.
  • Integration of Epic data ensures real-time patient information for improved care coordination.
