Scotland Memorial implements ER tablets

LAURINBURG — Scotland Memorial Hospital, in partnership with Bioscape Digital & ER Express, has launched a tablet solution to enable patients to give feedback to the hospital, understand their financial options under the Affordable Care Act, and learn more about their health conditions right from the emergency room.

Patients who visit Scotland Memorial’s Emergency Department can now engage in real-time feedback with staff, better understand their health conditions and discharge instructions, request information regarding a primary care provider, sign up for the patient portal, and enjoy games and other content while waiting.

“This innovative tablet-based platform allows us to increase the amount of information available to patients, be responsive to changing patient needs, and provide the best possible patient experience,” said Jennifer Isenhour M.D., an Emergency Center physician at Scotland Memorial Hospital.
