BMI has made a $2 million donation in support of Baptist Health Foundation’s Digital Patient Smart TV and Engagement system.  The donation will launch the implementation of high-tech, patient-centered features in hospital rooms throughout Baptist Health. The registration area in the lobby of Baptist Health Baptist Hospital will be named BMI Registration. 

The technology will provide patients a more personalized approach to care, along with increased comfort and peace of mind.  It also helps streamline and automate clinical processes and communication. 

Baptist Health’s digital smart rooms offer hospital patients many features:

  • Digital entertainment: movies on demand, HD cable channels
  • On-demand meal ordering and guest meal ordering
  • Digital communication board – care team information, daily plan details, patient vitals
  • Auto-assigned Care Education videos
  • Meds to Beds – patients receive prescriptions directly at their bedside
  • Video chat with family and friends
  • Photo sharing with family and friends
  • Translation services – access to 40+ languages including American Sign Language 

Other digital enhancements, including customized meal ordering and automated discharge summaries, will be available in the future.
