High-quality medical care delivered by skilled providers is just part of
what we excel at here at
Northwest Medical Center. We’re also actively working to continually improve the patient
experience in all of our departments. Sophisticated technological innovations
are an important part of our recent improvements. When you visit our ER,
prepare for robotic surgery, or make use of our many other medical specialties,
we’ll do everything we can to ensure your positive hospital experience.
CenTrak Smart Band
Patient tracking is essential for seamless, efficient hospital care. Northwest
Medical Center is pleased to introduce the CenTrak Smart Band, which is
a single-use patient tag that allows for real-time location tracking.
This device improves patient flow and safety, and records patient-equipment
and patient-staff interactions to ensure quality care.
MyCare Electronic Whiteboards
All of the rooms at our hospital have been equipped with MyCare Electronic
Whiteboards. These operate much like digital bulletin boards and they
allow patients to become more proactive and better
informed about their own healthcare. When a nurse, doctor, or other provider enters a patient’s room,
that staff member’s name is automatically loaded onto the MyCare
Whiteboard so that the patient knows who is providing care. The Whiteboards
also display important patient information such as medication dosages,
scheduled procedures or treatments, and even their daily goals such as
physical therapy targets.
X-Plain Patient Education
It’s one of our priorities at Northwest Medical Center to improve
health literacy among our patients, giving them the ability to make informed
decisions for their wellness. One of the tools we’re implementing
to improve health literacy is interactive tutorials. These are audiovisual
tutorials that offer in-depth health information in an easy-to-understand
format. For example, if you’re scheduled for robotic surgery at
our hospital, you’ll be given an access code to begin working through
the tutorial that corresponds to your surgery.
Northwest Medical Center has long been a leading provider of compassionate
medical care for patients at every stage of life. Your family can rely
