Major Hospitals Using goCharge Stations to Enhance Patient Experience



Mobile charging station provider GoCharge is reporting that major hospital systems across the country are embracing its new line of kiosks designed to enhance the patient experience by keeping patients and their families in constant contact with each other as well as the medical staff, according to a statement released by the company.

The new line, which includes the Orion, Apollo, Atlas, Zeus and Midas stations, has a variety of features such as digital monitors, open bays or lockers for security, and accommodations for both cell phones and tablets. The stations are designed to operate in various locations of a hospital, including waiting rooms, emergency rooms, nursing stations, cafeterias, patient rooms and staff lounges. 

Major hospital systems, including Lenox Hill in New York City and Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, are new GoCharge customers as well as hospital GPOs such as Amerinet, Yankee Alliance and MAGNET.

“We are pleased to be able to offer this new and innovative solution to the hospital and medical community, and to have formed strategic relationships with national GPOs,” goCharge CEO David Walke said. “We look forward to delivering these exciting and relevant solutions to the healthcare organization market, to enhance the patience experience as well as the staff.  Our team is greatly looking forward to engaging with medical centers nationwide to help identify new ways to leverage mobile devices to the benefit of their patients while maintaining full compliance with HIPAA and HITECH guidelines and enhancing overall regard of their medical facilities.”

The stations are designed to be free of charge and the company promises that they will “enhance the patient experience, which in turn, improves patient outcomes, reduces costs, and enhances the overall regard of the hospital or medical center.”

goCharge clients outside of the medical industry currently include Verizon Wireless, Chase, Major League Baseball, and International CES.
