The new bedside terminals enable patients and clinicians to interact in a more convenient, effective manner, facilitating requests for information or service at the touch of a button.

For their entertainment and communications needs, patients also enjoy Internet access, television programming, movies-on-demand, room feature controls, and even Skype to stay connected to the world during hospitalization.
