Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, an affiliate of the Saint Barnabas Health Care System, recently deployed self-service kiosks in its emergency department to help staff prioritize treatment based on medical urgency.

The 673-bed Newark, N.J.-based regional teaching hospital is using Dayton, Ohio-based NCR’s MediKiosk, a self-service check-in kiosk that helps hospital staff better manage patient volume by enabling them to prioritize patients based on the severity of their medical conditions.

Newark Beth Israel began using MediKiosk in 2005 in a number of hospital departments, including oncology, same-day surgery, pre-admission testing and in its adult and pediatric clinics.
