Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with East Boston Neighborhood Health Center (EBNHC) as they seek to provide the best benefit plans possible to their employees.
Thus, while I may be a bit biased in regards to the story that I am about to share, I do think that you’ll enjoy it as well — especially if you are interested in technology, healthcare, and community.
The story that caught my attention was published by the East Boston Times-Free Press. Entitled “On the Cutting Edge: Latest Technology Available at EBNHC“, the story highlights a number of ways they are using technology to improve and streamline the patient experience.
I encourage you to take a moment to read the full article, which features a number of great quotes from Manny Lopes, CEO of EBNHC. Here are a few highlights that stood out to me:
- My Chart App: This is a mobile app that makes it easier for patients to access test results and forms, communicate with their doctor, receive text alerts when prescriptions are ready, and more.
- Prescriptions and Robotic Technology: To ensure that accuracy levels remain high above industry norms, EBNHC is using robotic technology to reduce errors and support their skilled staff.
- Monitoring Technology for Waiting Rooms: With EBNHC’s emergency room being one of the top five busiest in the city, they have adopted new monitoring systems to ensure that waiting times are kept to a minimum.
Of course, these are just a few ways that EBNHC is using technology to improve healthcare and to serve its community! Please join me in congratulating them for a job well done!
