Technology Improvement: iPad Lending Project
The Kootenai Health Library and Information Center will initiate an iPad lending program. Through this program they will install and maintain selected apps and bookmarks to websites on all iPads purchased for this project. Key partners at Kootenai Health identified by the project lead in Respiratory Therapy and Operational Excellence will receive iPads loaned by the Library for use by their teams. One goal for the overall iPad lending program would be to support Kootenai Health employees and health professionals by giving them the opportunity to become familiar and experienced with the use of Point of Care apps, reference & productivity tools on iPads. An additional outcome goal is to improve the quality of patient care at Kootenai Health through making use of iPads in situations that will ultimately improve certain measures of quality and productivity related to the delivery of care.
