Customer Stories

Case Western Reserve School of Medicine and one of its programs, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine are piloting Microsoft Surface. Lerner students will work together on cases incorporating video, images, and written content. Medical students can tap the device’s potential for more engaging learning. Surface Hub devices brings case content such as echocardiogram videos and MRI images to life. With the multitouch interface, several group or faculty members can interact at the same time, whether they’re standing at the Surface Hub or using a connected mobile device.

Whether it’s a routine operation or a new procedure, the challenge of maintaining an accurate surgery schedule requires the coordination of a team of healthcare professionals on behalf of every patient. To meet that challenge, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is using Microsoft Surface Hub to replace manual operating room scheduling with a digital, large-screen interactive display board that works with its existing electronic medical record solution. With one-touch access to consolidated patient data, care teams can work together to make critical decisions faster, improving care.

“Ubiquitous access to real-time accurate patient data across the hospital and on different devices, including tablets and mobile phones, is now within reach at CHOP thanks to Surface Hub.”
