Hospitals and healthcare environments today are challenged to maintain two vital goals: improving healthcare outcomes and upholding patient satisfaction. eGlass solutions have proven an instrumental solution for ensuring the best of both. eGlass® delivers game-changing patient engagement advantages, offering exceptional visual and audible privacy as well as extreme infection protection while ensuring comfortable and physically pleasant environments.
As hospital staff well know, fabric curtains provide little to no privacy or protection because they are not soundproof and collect germs that result in cross-contamination, while exterior window treatments, such as blinds and shades attract dust and contagions as well. These germs not only compromise patient health, but also put service reimbursement and revenue at risk. eGlass solves these troublesome issues by removing all unnecessary moving parts and replacing them with dynamic glass solutions.
- Replace traditional fabric curtains with a state-of-the-art, maintenance-free, high-tech alternative.
- Deploy what has been implemented at numerous prestigious medical centers around the world.
- Utilize this healthier alternative for walls or windows in patient rooms and diagnostic areas.
- Create a light filled healing environment free of unnecessary moving parts or places for germs to accumulate
- Incorporate larger expanses of glass into hospitals without having to compromise on design
- Block out stressors while maintaining patient privacy and dignity
- Retrofit walls and entryways to active ERs or ORs.
- Configure to sliding, telescopic or breakaway doors easily.
eGlass offers patients the opportunity to engage with their environment and make it more comfortable. Our products are either automatically controlled or electronically operated through a wall switch, with a remote control used by the patient or from a nearby nursing station, or hands-free using motion sensors or voice commands.
eGlass is ideal for the facades of hospitals and is easily installed throughout facility interiors in fixed or sliding walls, within partitions, and as well as in the swinging or breakaway doors typically used in the ICU and ER. It is virtually soundproof because of its lamination, and it can be tempered for near-indestructibility, if needed. Wiring methods can range from simple door loops or electrified hinges to more proprietary integrated power transfer systems for sliding and breakaway doors.
Moreover, cleaning and sanitizing is as easy as spraying the surface with a disinfecting antibacterial solution, providing extreme infection protection for healthier, happier patients and practitioners – while saving hospitals time and money.
HOW TO BUY
If you’re working with an Architect and/or a General Contractor, it is always best to have them contact an Innovative sales team member early in the process. This can help avoid oversights and costly errors down the road. This will also help ensure that the products you are selecting fit with your design intent, and are feasible with the rest of the construction.
Once the right eGlass product has been determined, it’s time to decide how to have it supplied and installed. This is usually done through an independent Glazing Contractor, whereas a door system, such as a swing, sliding, or breakaway door, might be provided by a third party door manufacturer such as Tormax.
