Patient Smartboard

The Patient Smartboard is an interactive, touch screen device mounted to the wall of the patient room, providing real-time data to clinicians, patients and visitors who are in the room.

  • 1080P HD Displays
  • 10 point capacitive touch screen
  • NFC / RFID Reader (HID optional)
  • 5 MP Camera
  • Microphone / Speakers
  • Ethernet and WIFI (Gen 6)
  • Bluetooth
  • USB Ports
  • Android 9 OS
  • Vertical or Horizontal Orientation

Facilities can also provide their own patient board hardware if preferred – the patient board software runs on Android 8+, Microsoft Windows, or iOS.

Video Conferencing

Patients can use the Patient SmartBoard to accept and participate in video conferencing with physicians, nurses, or friends and family.

Clinicians can use any Vizabli SmartBoard in the facility or the Vizabli Clinician Mobile App to call a patient from anywhere. Friends and family have their own mobile app to call in to a patient.

Welcome Video

When a patient is admitted, a personalized welcome message will appear on the Patient SmartBoard to greet them when they arrive in the room.

The message can have an embedded video as well, that can be played by touching the screen.

Different welcome messages can be configured for the entire facility or for different floors, units, groups of rooms, or even individual rooms.

Custom Themes & Layout

Facilities can easily set up multiple themes, layouts and pages using simple, web based, graphical theme and layout editors.

Themes and Layouts can be applied at any level in the organization and can be overridden on a facility, floor, unit, room, or even bed basis.



The header module shows the patient’s name or abbreviation (configurable in the admin). If a patient is marked as anonymous, no patient name is shown.

The header also shows the room and bed numbers, phone extension and the current data and time.

Patient Flags

Patient Flags provide a visual cue to caregivers and others about information related to the patient. The flags can represent any type of information a facility wants to display, such as restrictions (e.g. “NPO”), precautions (“Fall Risk”), allergies, etc. It can also be configured to show things like language spoken, veteran status, or other non-medical information.

Flags can be associated with diagnostic codes and other data in the EMR and set automatically when that data is received, or the flags can be set manually by authorized users.

Care Team

The Care Team module displays the current care team associated with a room and bed. This data is set automatically as care team members come on and off duty in the facility’s care team assignment system. The care team is ordered by role and staff photos, names, and titles can be synced with the facility security and authentication systems or managed entirely within the solution.

Pain Management

The Pain Management module displays the last reported pain level and current goal.

 This data is read and updated based on data received from the EMR. It can be set either directly in the EMR or by entering it from the Clinical Console module.

Medications Management

The Medications Module shows upcoming medications based on medication orders entered into the EMR.

 The module displays the medication image (if available), name, and next anticipated dosage date and time.

 This can be a scrollable list or show only a limited number of upcoming medications.

Weather Module

The weather module shows the current weather for the facility’s zip code, updated every 15 minutes. It provides the temperature and an iconic and text representation of current conditions.


Displays information about the previous round as well as when and who will be performing the next round.

Rounding data can be maintained in the ACES solution or it can integrate with a third party rounding solution, such as a nurse call system.

Multiple Pages & Screen Navigation

Because of the extensive number of modules available, facilities may choose to provide several pages of modules that can be navigated by touching the forward and back arrow buttons in the footer menu.

Sleep Button

The sleep button does not turn off the device, it turns off the screen entirely, similar to what most people do with a smart phone. When the screen is “asleep”, there is no light emitted from the device at all to prevent the patient from being kept awake.

 The screen can be turned back on by simply touching anywhere on the screen.

 The screen can also be put to sleep or awakened at specific times of day which is configured through the web management tool.


The brightness button allows the user to adjust the screen brightness on the device screen.

Light Mode/Dark Mode

The light mode / dark mode toggle button allows the user to easily switch back and forth between the current theme and the configured “dark” theme that is set for the device.

Relaxation Button

The “relaxation” button launches the default relaxation video and starts playing it as an overlay on the screen.


The education module allows the user to display and navigate a hierarchy of educational and other media, select and display information about that video, and either “prescribe” the video to be viewed later, play the video on the device directly, or send the video to be played on the TV.

Clinical Console

The clinical console is unlocked by using an NFC tag, RFID tag, or by touching the lock icon and entering a PIN.

Once unlocked, the Clinical Console allows the clinician to set patient flags, change the room status, execute workflows, communicate by audio or video with other facility locations, and more.

All workflows can be custom configured by the customer, including if all steps are required to be checked off before proceeding.

The rounding workflow also integrates with the pain scale and allows the clinician to choose who will be performing the next round, and when.

Drawing Area

The drawing area allows the user to draw with their finger on the screen, including setting the color of drawing.

Staff Visit Log

 The staff visit log displays a list of all staff members who have entered the patient room during the patient’s current stay. It shows the date and time of enters for each staff member, when they left, and the duration of the visit.

Discharge Goals

The Discharge Goals module displays a list of discharge specific goals from the EMR and can send updated messages back to the EMR as the goals are checked off by the clinician, or will be updated on the board if updated in the EMR.

Patient Schedule

The Patient Schedule module displays a list of events for the patient from the EMR. These items can be updated back to the EMR as they are checked off by the clinician on the patient board, or will be updated on the board if updated in the EMR.

Video Interpreter

Vizabli provides access to a video interpreter on every patient board in the facility. This module allows a clinician to select from 1 of over 250 languages, including sign language from various countries, and have on-demand language interpretation by a certified medical interpreter who can see, and be seen, in the room.

PACS Viewer

The PACS viewer allows a clinician to open a set of images related to the patient, select an image, pan and zoom on the image, and annotate the image with built in drawing tools.

Web Viewer

The web viewer module allows the facility to set up a page to point to a specific web address, either internally or externally. This allow the facility to easily embed their own content into the patient board.
