Greenwich Hospital Emergency Department Video – A “Most Wired” Hospital

Posted Jan 10 2010 4:29pm

This is a great video from one of the best wired hospitals in the US in Greenwich, CT.  The use of wrist bands matching medications is shown here.

The video shows real patients telling their stories and some great shots of the technology being used.

The way heart attack victims are handled today has changed tremendously and the video shows that via the information from the ambulance, the ER room is already informed and ready to take care of the patient instead of having to wait for the arrival.  Thanks to Jimmy Weeks, the hospital CIO for bringing this video to my attention on Twitter.  Twitter makes for great healthcare communication.  BD
