Hunt Cancer Institute to Feature Allen E3 Solution
Mobile Touchscreen Consoles Bring Entertainment, Education and Relaxation to Oncology Patients
When the Hunt Cancer Institute at Torrance Memorial Medical Center opens next month, Southern California cancer patients will have access to state-of-the-art care and technology innovations, including Allen Technologies’ E3 Patient Engagement Solutions.
Allen, the leader in interactive patient engagement solutions for 40 years, announced today that the Hunt Cancer Institute will deploy its interactive patient engagement solutions on mobile touchscreen units for use by patients in its 32 infusion bays.
Scheduled to open in December, the Hunt Cancer Center will bring together the oncology expertise of Torrance Memorial and its partner, Cedars-Sinai, as well as community specialists.
The center is a two-story freestanding building on the Torrance Memorial Medical Center campus, where Allen’s E3 has provided interactive patient engagement solutions since 2014. It will consolidate existing cancer treatment services in one location with an emphasis on patient-centered care. Centralized services include access to subspecialists in 60 types of cancer, nurse navigators, genetic counseling, clinical research trials, infusion and chemotherapy. Special attention was given to the center’s infusion treatment area, making it as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
While patients undergo treatment in the infusion centers, Allen’s mobile E3 touchscreen carts will put entertainment and health information at their fingertips. Each patient can choose television programs or movies, watch health education videos, access information about support groups or relax to soothing relaxation videos and soundtracks.
“Our interactive E3 solution is ideally suited for the infusion treatment environment, where treatments can span hours,” said Robert Jensen, Allen Technologies vice president of experience & outcomes. “By putting entertainment, education, information and relaxation tools literally at the fingertips of patients, E3 helps make that time more comfortable and relaxing. We are thrilled that Torrance Memorial Medical Center selected Allen’s E3 to be a part of this innovative project.”
