Example 2: ED e-Whiteboard
Robert Wears’ example of a new electronic whiteboard in the ED: It displayed everything you’d want (each patient, the primary team, stage of movement through the ED, pending data, etc.)
But, the computer console for the new electronic whiteboard was inconveniently located. The staff could not all look at the e-whiteboard and make immediate changes or notes.
With the old one, people could physically interact with the board. (They could move names, add notes, and all could see and participate).
