Meeting Clinician Needs
Clinicians are often forced to overcome inefficiencies built into their daily routines. Sync offers opportunities to make these experiences work for clinicians, rather than against them.
At a Sync workstation, clinicians find a place for charting and technology access, with sightlines to the patient. This solution minimizes wasted footsteps to save time and helps lead to more efficient care experiences.
Technology continues to advance, while fixed millwork represents built-in obsolescence. Sync is designed to future-proof clinician workspaces as much as possible.
As space needs shift, the modular design of Sync allows for multiple configurations in new or existing environments.
Range of settings
Sync works in centralized and decentralized applications throughout the clinical environment.
Connection is Critical
Collaboration takes place on the move, during shift changes, in patient rooms and everywhere in between. Sync clinician workstations provide an ecosystem of spaces for different activities: collaboration, focused tasks, teaching and learning, and quick social exchanges.
The open plan concept offers easy access on all sides. Adjustable monitors and contoured work surfaces promote clear sightlines for information sharing, while providing dedicated space for individual work.
Greater Care for Clinicians
Clinician comfort is rarely considered in a one-size-fits-all workstation. Sync keeps comfort at the forefront.
- Touch-control adjustment brings individual work surfaces to a comfortable height for sitting, standing or perching.
- Adjustable monitor arms adapt to the user.
- The foot railing lets clinicians shift their weight while standing – an instant relief for weight-bearing limbs.
Over nine months of inpatient study, we observed clinicians at work in 12 facilities and six cities. We saw on-the-fly collaboration and focused work. Make-do ergonomics. Inefficient workarounds. Changing technology with important implications for work process.
PROCESS BEFORE PLACE
For clinicians, work is more of a process than a place. They often improvise with any available space and surface, whether or not it is suited to the type of work at hand.
We saw a significant opportunity to improve the experience through more thoughtful design. Sync responds to real clinician needs and work processes by encouraging interaction to improve workflow and the care experience.
