August 4, 2021 — Supporting its mission to help healthcare providers streamline operations and deliver exceptional patient care, LG Business Solutions USA introduced a new LG thin client system designed specifically for use in hospitals, urgent care facilities and other healthcare environments.

The new LG healthcare All-in-One Thin Client workstation (model 24CN670N) comes with built-in dual-band RFID readers, making it easy for multiple authorized healthcare professionals to log into shared resources, such as electronic health records systems and other networked applications.

The RFID readers in the LG 24CN670N support dual-band communication to accommodate a wide range of RFID technologies. It has been designed to be compatible with Imprivata digital identity solutions, a leading platform supporting secure access management and digital workflows in the healthcare market. The thin client includes a TPM 2.0 Trust Platform Module for added security.

“When a doctor or nurse logs into a hospital workstation, time is often of the essence, and each step can mean precious minutes away from patients,” said Stephen K. Hu, senior director at LG Business Solutions USA. “With our new healthcare-specific thin client, all they have to do is hold up a compatible RFID card, and they can easily access the systems they need to do their job.”

The new 24-inch Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) LG healthcare thin client with IPS technology delivers a sharp picture and wide viewing angles for sharing chart and medical information with medical staff.

The display also complies with IEC 60601 for medical devices used in healthcare environments. Importantly, the thin client comes with seven different USB ports (2 x USB 2.0 Type-A, 4 x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A, 1 x USB Type-C) for attaching compatible peripherals, medical devices, barcode scanners and more.

The thin client includes an Intel Celeron J4105 quad-core processor and no operating system, for organizations that prefer a different virtualized solution, such as the IGEL OS. (LG is an IGEL Ready technology partner.)

“Whatever way healthcare providers wish to deploy computing systems, LG’s thin clients can support their IT strategy,” Hu continued. “When many healthcare employees started working from home, managed thin clients offered an easy, secure way to do so. Inside healthcare facilities, thin clients are ideal for shift work in which many clinicians need access to information from a single device and can log in without touching the system.”

The LG healthcare thin client comes with a keyboard and mouse. It has no moving parts, including no cooling fans, so there is less potential for product malfunction.

The new LG thin client can support up to two additional displays via DisplayPort and HDMI connections for healthcare applications, such as imaging, that might require multiple screens. Each system is designed to tilt, swivel, pivot and change height for optimal positioning and improved usability at nursing stations, in patient rooms or wherever the thin client is installed.
