FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., April 29 Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leading supplier of innovative computer products including peripherals, biometric security solutions and digital media solutions, today announced that the Fujitsu Med-Serv(TM) 50 patient registration kiosk received the Self Service Excellence Award for the Best Healthcare Deployment during the KioskCom Self Service Expo 2010. Developed jointly with Jardogs and AllScripts, the Fujitsu Med-Serv 50 Patient Kiosk is an open hardware platform that simplifies and automates the patient check-in process at hospitals and healthcare clinics. The Fujitsu Med-Serv 50 solution enables patients to quickly and securely update personal information, order prescription refills and pay outstanding balances while also increasing efficiency, improving cash-flow visibility and reducing operational costs for healthcare facilities.
"When designing the Med-Serv 50 Patient Kiosk, Fujitsu, Jardogs and AllScripts took great care in engineering a platform that is user-friendly and secure for patients while also providing hospitals and clinics with an automated, simplified check-in system that cost-effectively improves operational efficiencies," said Vic Herring, vice president of sales and marketing, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. "Winning the Self Service Excellence Award for the Best Healthcare Deployment further validates both the technological ingenuity and practicality of the Fujitsu Med-Serv 50 Patient Kiosk. We are honored to receive this prestigious award and look forward to continued success delivering cutting-edge kiosk solutions to the healthcare industry."
Jardogs, LLC was founded in 2009 as a subsidiary of Springfield Clinic in Springfield, Illinois and integrated the newest technology into healthcare solutions. The Fujitsu Med-Serv 50 Patient Kiosk reduces the stress and inconvenience associated with repetitive paperwork by re-directing patients' attention and focus on receiving necessary medical attention in a timely manner. Patients gain control of the registration process and can be assured of data accuracy since they are inputting the information themselves. For healthcare providers, the Fujitsu Med-Serv 50 Patient Kiosk reduces administrative costs, increases efficiency by eliminating redundant data entry, ensures compliance with HIPAA requirements and improves cash flow visibility by integrating with back-end accounting systems. To address potential fraud concerns, the Fujitsu PalmSecure(TM) palm vein biometric authentication technology is also offered as an option feature.
The KioskCom Self Service Excellence Awards are unique to the industry for their primary focus on both deployers and technology providers, and the categories were judged by a panel of seasoned professionals representing firms that have deployed self-service technology, analyst firms, associations and media.
"The Fujitsu Med-Serv 50 Patient Kiosk and the other KioskCom Self Service Excellence Awards winners represent the technology innovation and commitment to engineering superiority that make this a very exciting, fast-growing industry," said Lawrence Dvorchik, General Manager for KioskCom. "We applaud Fujitsu and all of the other Excellence Awards winners for delivering effective self-service technologies that provide customers with tangible ROI and significantly advance the capabilities of kiosk applications."
To bring the Fujitsu Med-Serv 50 Patient Kiosk to market, Fujitsu partnered with KIOSK Information Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of self-service kiosks, to develop the initial prototypes. KIOSK Information Systems is helping to deliver the Fujitsu Med-Serv 50 Patient Kiosk to healthcare customers across the U.S., including the George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates in Washington, D.C.
