URBANA, Ill. (WCCU) — Carle Hospital is advancing their transition to automated check-in kiosks for patients.
With more than a million visitors every year, Carle is looking to buy more kiosks to further improve patient convenience, privacy, and efficiency.
Right now there are 28 in use, but Cheryl Staske, Director of Patient Access, said they are making upgrades and looking to implement more across the county.
“It adds that level of privacy that patients sometimes feel uncomfortable speaking about private information in front of other people,” she said. “It’s a way of the future I think our world is going more high-tech.”
Each kiosk costs upwards of $10,000 dollars.
Carle is hoping to implement about a half a dozen more.
