Proximity Systems introduces sub-$1,000 workstations for hospital technology
Proximity Systems, a provider of technology furniture solutions to healthcare, announced upgrades to its Embrace SLIM Wall-Mounted Workstation and its Embrace SLIM Wall-Mounted Workstation with an Open Face at a new, more affordable price point, as well as upgrades to its CX entry-level cabinets. Because the Embrace multi-compartment, wall-mounted workstation cabinets are priced under $1,000 each, hospitals can purchase them without going through capital approval.
The Proximity Embrace line features a multi-compartment design that provides hospitals with a locked, secure CPU compartment that can only be accessed by designated hospital personnel. This helps hospitals meet HIPAA requirements for secure client information. The cabinets’ design facilitates interactions between caregivers and patients while also helping hospitals maintain and increase their HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) scores.
When strategically placed in patient rooms, ERs, ICUs, and other frequented areas, the wall-mounted Proximity Embrace workstations ensure that data is always at caregivers’ fingertips. The in-room cabinets and workstations save time and effort, allowing hospital staff to focus energy on what is important—providing the best care to their patients.
The Embrace SLIM Wall-Mounted Workstation offers an upper enclosed compartment designed specifically to store CPUs behind a locked door. It is 4-inches deep and includes continuous airflow to protect equipment from overheating. The lower compartment folds down to provide caregivers with a spacious and comfortable workstation capable of holding up to 400 pounds; the keyboard and mouse dock automatically when the worksurface is closed.
The Embrace SLIM Wall-Mounted Workstation with an Open Face offers the same ventilated, 4-inch-deep upper enclosed compartment for storing CPUs behind a locked door but with an open-face design that enables the monitor to be seen, even when the cabinet is not being used. The lower compartment folds down to provide caregivers with a spacious and comfortable workstation that supports up to 400 pounds. The keyboard and mouse dock automatically when the worksurface is closed.
At the same time, Proximity also announced updates to two of its entry-level cabinets:
CXD is a 4-inch thin document workstation designed for laptops, tablets, or charts. Ideal for patient bedside documentation and hallway installations, the unit is priced at $795.
CX1 is a 4-inch-deep wall-mounted computer workstation that works for space-constrained or egress areas. Available with a swivel feature or an exposed, fixed-monitor mount, the CX1 comes with cable management, keyboard and mouse storage. It is priced at $595 for the fixed monitor mount and at $795 with the swivel feature. Proximity Systems
