Paper is becoming obsolete in Kaiser's medical facilities across the country; it is one of the only health care providers that has completely digitized its patient's medical records. One step of going digital is creating a way for doctors to check and update patient data more efficiently (without pen and paper).
At the Garfield Innovation Center, Kaiser developed electronic medical tablets. These tablets allow nurses and doctors to do data entry and get access to patient information from any hospital anywhere. They are already being used at Kaiser facilities in Southern California.
