N.Y. facility's technology designed to decrease patient stress

November 1, 2018

NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) Hospital's newest ambulatory care center, The David H. Koch Center, was designed with technology to cut patient stress and wait times, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.

The app also gives instructions about the visit and step-by-step directions to exam prep and recovery rooms.
