In 2016, Casgan teamed with Apple and JAMF, the leader in mobile device management, to create a revolutionary patient experience at UC San Diego Health Jacobs Medical Center. The goal was to dramatically improve the healthcare experience by putting every day control back in the hands of the patient.
The project features start-of-the-art technology innovations including customized room control over lights, thermostats, and TVs in the patient room, all from intuitive easy-to-use iPad tablets fully integrated with standard Pillow Speaker controls. Opened in 2016, the 245-bed $950 million medical and surgical specialty center is the epitome of commitment to exceptional customer service and the model for the patient room of the future.
Beacon by Casgan, Inc. is the future of the Patient Experience and it is here today.
“We saw that engagement in medical care, as measured by accessing their medical record, is higher among patients who pick up the tablet for room control purposes.” - Chris Longhurst, MD CIO and Associate CMIO, UC San Diego Health
