Technology centers serve physicians

New physician technology centers are being added in patient care areas, as part of the 4418ParagonConstruction310x153 move to Paragon. The new information system will involve more physician electronic record-keeping, so SAMC created unique spaces for physician privacy. Each center will have six work stations with regular telephones, dictation phones and printers for orders and other needs. In the photo, James Baxley, left, and Mark Sprouse of In-House Construction prepare a wall for painting in the Cardiology floor’s physician’s work station room. All centers should be open by March 30.
