E Ink and Avalue Partner to Showcase Smart Hospital Tech at HIMSS 2021

August 9, 2021 GMT

BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 9, 2021--

E Ink Holdings, “E Ink” (8069.TW), the originator, pioneer, and global commercial leader in digital paper technology, is set to showcase innovative hospital technology for digital transformation at this week’s Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2021.

E Ink and Avalue, a global industrial PC solution provider, make smart information technology solutions for healthcare settings that keep patients and providers informed. For example, the Patient Communication Board is a 42-inch display designed to be a communication platform between the patient, their care team and their family and friends. By connecting to the facility’s EHR/EMR system, all parties receive consistent, real-time information about the treatment the patient is receiving.


Ideal for hospitals and healthcare, E Ink’s digital paper technology is lightweight, easy to install and blends into surrounding environments organically. Because they do not emit light like a traditional LCD or LED, these displays can provide real-time updates as they are needed, without disturbing patients as they rest. Additionally, their portability enables them to be moved as needed, and used in other areas of the hospitals for wayfinding and to convey needed visitor information.

“So often, communicating updates between care team and patient comes down to written updates on a whiteboard or on a clipboard, which can be cumbersome,” said Tim O’Malley, AVP, E Ink. “We worked with Avalue to design a technology that frees up healthcare providers to focus on providing consistent and quality care.”

Inherent characteristics of E Ink’s digital paper technology make sustainable digital transformation possible: E Ink displays are bi-stable, meaning they only use power to change the image on the display. This makes them simple to install, environmentally friendly, and can be run solely on a battery system, without needing to be plugged in.
