El Camino Hospital
The new El Camino Hospital in Silicon Valley is the most technologically advanced in the world. The $470-million facility features robots that carry supplies and give surgeons tools, remote robotic surgery capabilities, palm-scanners for patient registration, and infection-resistant bedside computers. Patients' exam results, location and vital signs are transmitted to nurses, doctors and a central server over secure Wi-Fi. Medical providers wear voice-activated communication devices—a "Where's Doctor Robert?" query provides a direct connection, eliminating noisy hospital-wide pages. The facility opened for doctor training in October.
Palm Scanners beat the purpose of reducing germs.
Not with the prober anti-biotic coating. Besides, I would say ease of use makes it worth it, as well as reduced time-to-register
They scan with UV that kills germs at the same time, maybe. ;)
