Door Smartboard

The Door Smartboard is a 10.1” touchscreen tablet that sits outside of the patient room and replace the old door placards, providing the room number, patient name, precaution flags, and much more.

Hardware Features

Vizabli provided Door SmartBoards are 10.1” tablets with a 360 LED “halo” light ring.

All provided boards have the following features:

  • 720P Displays
  • 10 point capacitive touch screen
  • NFC / RFID Reader (HID optional)
  • 5 MP Camera
  • Microphone / Speakers
  • Ethernet and WIFI (Gen 5)
  • Bluetooth
  • USB Ports
  • Android 9 OS

 The LED halo can be illuminated in various colors and color patterns (e.g. rotating green/blue/white every second). The halo can be illuminated on various types of events, such as nurse call events, RTLS events, room status, flags, etc.

Themes and Layouts

Door Smartboards can be themed with background images, colors, translucency, and the modules can be arranged on the screen in any way the facility desires.

 Themes and Layouts can be applied dynamically at any time either on demand by the facility staff or based on events, such as if a room “swings” from one class of care to another (e.g. swinging from “Medical/Surgical” to “Labor and Delivery” temporarily.


Patient Flags

The current patient flags are displayed on the doorboard outside the room so that clinicians and visitors understand any necessary precautions, restrictions, or other data related to the patient before they enter.

 The flags can be set automatically based on data received from EMR updates or they can be set on demand by the clinical staff from the nurse station smartboard or the clinician mobile app.

Room and Bed

The room and bed name and/or number is displayed on the screen. The look and feel of this module (colors, translucency, etc.) is configurable in the web admin.

Room Status

Displays the current status of the room (e.g. Vacant, No Visitors, etc.)

The status can be set automatically based on data received from EMR updates (admit, discharge, etc.) or they can be set on demand by the clinical staff from the nurse station smartboard or the clinician mobile app.

Patient Name

This module displays the HIPAA compliant name of the patient.

 Note that the patient name format is configurable in the web administration tool and patients can also be marked as “anonymous”, in which case no name will be displayed.

RTLS Alerts

This module displays the name of the last clinician who entered the room and has not yet left.

Note that this can be set automatically via messages received by an existing RTLS system, or it can be set by the clinician unlocking the board with an NFC or RFID badge or by entering a PIN code.


This module displays alerts from the nurse call system, smart bed system, or other clinical systems that generate alerts.

 Note that these messages are set automatically via messages received by the nurse call or other senders and can include the elapsed time since the alert was first generated.

 When the alert message is cancelled by the sending system, it clears from all boards.

Clinical Console

This button unlocks the clinical console with a PIN if no NFC/RFID badge is available to unlock it.

Once unlocked, the clinical console is presented.

Video Conferencing

This button initiates a video conference with the corresponding patient board in the same room.

 The camera on this device broadcasts the video of the clinician to the board inside the room, and the clinician can see the view from the camera on the patient board on the screen.

Floor Maps

The Floor Maps module provides a visual map of the current floor of the facility where the device is located.
