One of the medical technology industry’s biggest conferences is this week, and we’re excited to again be a part of it. HIMSS16 kicks off Monday with Preview Night at the Sands Convention Center and Expo in Las Vegas. By the end of the week, we hope to have met with many of the 43,000 attendees looking for solutions to better engage patients and allow medical equipment to work safely and securely.
Most people don’t know this, but we actually unveiled a version of the Patient Engagement Table at last year’s show. It was at that time we brought out a very early prototype that we’d pulled together based on feedback from our customers. That early model of an over-bed table that could accommodate a tablet device generated a lot of positive feedback from HIMSS attendees, and this encouraged us to develop today’s version of the Patient Engagement Table, which makes it much easier to use a tablet device from a bed or chair. We’ve since developed additional solutions for positioning tablets for patient use that we’re eager to demonstrate at the show.
Additionally, we’re showcasing a new line of variable height mounts, the VHM-P™ and VHM-PL™, that deliver significant advances in cable management, precision, cleanability, durability. Our new arm mounts – designed to hold computers and medical equipment for clinician use – help by containing multiple device cables and making it easier to clean the mounts. These solutions also include an optional lock feature, so a device stays where it’s positioned, or easily moves as needed.
For 45 years, GCX has been the leading developer of IT and medical device mounting solutions for healthcare providers and OEMs. We’re proud of both our longevity and legacy, and hope you’ll swing by Booth #4039 to learn how we can collaborate to improve the patient experience.
We look forward to seeing everyone in Las Vegas!
