Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is deploying the My Patient Passport Express from Mequon, Wis.-based D2 Sales throughout its facilities.

The My Patient Passport Express kiosk allows patients to check-in, make future appointments, and update their medical history using a HIPAA-compliant touchscreen monitor, says the company. Patients can use a credit card to make co-pay payments, and sign documents using the integrated electronic signature pad, it touts.

Established in 1883, Cincinnati Children’s is a 511-bed, not-for-profit, pediatric academic medical center. It offers 15 patient care sites throughout the region and operates the only Level I pediatric trauma center in the Greater Cincinnati area, and the only pediatric cardiac intensive care unit in the region.
