Exam Room Device 101
Each exam room is assigned two devices: inside and out. They are designed to help care teams communicate what is happening in the room and which next steps are needed.
This article will cover the basics of the exam room device, if you would like to view our suggestions on how to use the devices most effectively, click here to visit our Best Practices article.
Badging In/Out of the Exam Room:
Badge scanners are located underneath the outside exam room device. Badging in is as easy as tapping and holding your badge against the scanner until you hear the ‘beep’.
