Cleaner Restrooms with the Push of a Button
Amazon’s Dash Buttons have made it easier than ever for its customers to instantly order items that need frequent replenishment, all with the push of a button. A pilot project at the Brigham has adapted the same technology to deliver that convenience and innovation in a health care environment, starting in an unexpected place: the hospital’s public restrooms.
If successful, the buttons are expected to be installed in more restrooms across BWH and considered for other types of recurring requests, such as cleaning a patient room or refilling a hand sanitizer dispenser. The project is supported by the Brigham Digital Innovation Hub (iHub) as part of the digital transformation of the hospital.
