The Healthcare sector is experiencing radical transformations with technological innovations sweeping the entire expanse of the industry. While healthcare provider rapidly adopt EHR systems and workflow tools across the network to enhance efficiency, there is an increasing phenomenon of productivity paradox when these software system tools do not communicate with one another and healthcare professionals end up spending additional efforts retrieving patient data from multiple software system in order to perform the task throughout patient care workflow.
Amidst this growing paradox where software rules, ONYX Healthcare USA (ONYX), a company that proselytizes purpose-built medical IT devices designed to enable a single centralized point-of-care access for healthcare professionals. Established in North America and headquartered in Orange, CA, USA, ONYX is a company committed to improve patient care quality and workflow efficiency for healthcare professionals through its cutting-edge medical grade IT devices innovation.
While most clinical workflow and EHR software solution companies that cater to healthcare industry claim that their software system enhances interoperability, one obvious issue is that these systems were often not designed to integrate with one another to enable centralized patient record access to improve efficiency on diagnostic decision making process. To bridge this communication gap between different software solutions used throughout clinical workflow, ONYX presents the market various purpose built healthcare IT engagement device platforms to provide healthcare professionals and patients a centralized and real-time human interface access across multiple clinical software platforms from one single point.
One of the key areas that the company focuses on improving clinical workflow efficiency is nurse rounding and patient engagement in healthcare facilities. Traditional workstation-on-wheel used by nurse through patient rounding typically ends up staying in the hallway plugged in due to its long battery recharge time and preventing nurse from engage patient effectively by the bedside due to the need of double charting.

“Our lightweight VENUS mobile nursing workstation operated by palm size hot swap batteries reduces the redundancy of double charting caused by traditional heavy weight workstation-on-wheel and enable nurse to provide interactive engagement by patient side,” says John Chuang, President of ONYX Healthcare USA. He adds, “Universal compatibility of VENUS to all existing medical carts also provide hospital CIOs a convenient and cost saving option to deploy mobile workstation-on-wheel by simply retro-fitting legacy non-power cart with VENUS mobile nursing workstation for a true cable less and wireless turnkey solution.”
Especially for establishments that intend to enhance patient engagement on premise, ONYX offers bedside terminals that can double up as the source of entertainment for the patient and source of information to assist healthcare professionals by bedside during patient rounding visits. For patients in recovery phase without hand control access ability, ONYX patient infotainment terminal provides add-on eye-tracking controller module to enable patient access in special condition to enhance the patient experience during their stay.
Many healthcare providers have begun to deploy telemedicine initiative to expand their care service offering to improve patient satisfaction rating. Acute care hospitals and post-acute care facilities that have deployed ONYX equipment throughout their workflow benefited from built-in telemedicine features on ONYX solutions such as bedside patient terminal, mobile nursing workstation, and more to provide real-time and remote physician council. With the remote counseling capability assisted by integrated diagnostic peripherals such as digital stethoscope, HD wound diagnostic scope, wireless pulse oximeter, many healthcare providers were able to reduce the potential patient readmission, improve the ER discharge efficiency, or avoid unnecessary patient visits from long term care facility.
Aside from healthcare IT device for healthcare provider, ONYX Healthcare is also a professional medical device design and manufacturer that provides custom built fourth edition medical grade (UL/EN60601) workstation, embedded controller, and medical display used in applications such as OR, radiology, ultrasound, anesthesiology, and more.
Approaching the healthcare space from both purpose built healthcare IT device for healthcare provider and custom built medical grade workstation for medical device companies, ONYX aims to enhance communication between devices and clinical systems to establish healthcare IoT technology infrastructure and to improve interoperability throughout care process for healthcare professionals along with care quality for patients. “ONYX is a company built on the foundation to exclusively service healthcare industry unlike other IT technology company that provides general purpose solution to serve all industries. Our number one mission should always be to focus on solving problems for healthcare providers and developing technology that’s truly needed by the healthcare professionals,” concludes Chuang.
