All Digital Hospital Costs Just $15 Million

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has an article touting an all-digital hospital which is being built at the Indiana Heart Hospital in Indianapolis. GE Medical Systems will be responsible for the technology. The cost: just $15 million dollars. “We are so totally committed to a paperless, filmless and wireless environment, that we won’t even have nursing stations,” said David Veillette, CEO of the Indiana Heart Hospital. “Instead, all of our caregivers will be able to input and retrieve information right at the patient’s bedside.” I wish them well, but the above is difficult to read with a straight face.
