CHIME is a Toronto-based company that has used technology to create products that aid clinics with interactions among various parties. The company claims that the technology can improve efficiency and reduce overhead costs.
There are four components to the CHIME package: a dashboard, a patient wayfinding feature, staff tablets, and information tablets outside of exam rooms. The dashboard is intended to be used by staff to manage each patient and the room that needs to be prepared for the examination. The patient wayfinding feature is a visual that can be presented on a tablet and shows the patient information such as doctor name, room number, and estimated waiting time. The staff tablets allows for clinicians and staff to communicate actions that need to be completed for the patients, such as administering shots or attending to a patient. The information tablets are mounted outside of each exam room and display information such as the status of the room and allow for staff to check-in or check-out of appointments.
