Samsung Drives the Future of Smart Hospitals with New Display and Mobile Digital Health Solutions at with HIMSS 2021
Samsung Electronics America is showcasing its latest healthcare technology innovations at this week’s Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Conference (HIMSS). Designed to transform hospitals and healthcare facilities, Samsung’s technology enables smart hospital initiatives that improve quality of care and streamline operations.
“Truly smart hospitals use technology in new ways to improve each stage of the patient journey,” said Dr. Hon Pak, Chief Medical Officer, Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung helps healthcare organizations advance their smart hospital initiatives by providing solutions that transform the patient experience from when they first arrive onsite to how they engage bedside with education and entertainment to seamlessly transferring and managing care when discharged. This holistic approach to modernizing the patient experience not only improves patient satisfaction, but also optimizes communication processes and increases staff efficiency.”
“We’re excited to have the opportunity at HIMSS to show how Samsung can help healthcare professionals drive transformation and create new experiences for patients,” said Chris Mertens, Vice President Sales, B2B Display. “Our new TV series, which is debuting at the show, enables the same consumer-like TV experience patients have at home by providing in-room entertainment, information and interactivity, which can be centrally managed by administrators.”
At HIMSS, Samsung will spotlight solutions to address challenges faced by caregivers in every sector of the hospital. Samsung solutions for healthcare include:
NT690U Series TV

Engineered to enhance collaboration and productivity in any healthcare environment, Samsung and Logitech’s complimentary systems increase patient access to care and reduce complexity—allowing providers to deliver safe and effective care, where and when it’s needed most to help patients thrive. Clinics are sure to find a display solution to suit their needs thanks to Samsung’s comprehensive lineup of monitors and commercial displays in the QET, QBR, and QMR series. Logitech’s collaboration devices include Meetup, the all-in-one conference camera with 120-degree field-of-vision and BRIO, which enables UHD video calling with 5x digital zoom in FHD.
Empowering Providers and Patients with Smartphones and Tablets
Samsung offers a comprehensive portfolio of secure mobile devices for both healthcare providers and patients. This includes Samsung smartphones that help healthcare organizations streamline clinician workflows and lower IT costs. Smart hospitals can consolidate devices into a single, lightweight, Samsung phone that can utilize multiple clinical applications at one time. For hospitals that want to improve patient satisfaction, Samsung and its partners provide bedside access to information on a Samsung tablet to increase engagement and improve overall health outcomes. Samsung’s healthcare devices feature HIPAA-ready device security, including Samsung Knox which helps to secure Protected Health Information (PHI) on Samsung devices with end-to-end security, including a government-certified encryption module.
Grants Support Program Expands Access to Critical Funding
Samsung is launching its Grants Support Program to help healthcare organizations access federal and state grant funding to advance their smart hospital initiatives. Federal and state grants are part of the budget picture for nearly every public sector agency in the country, but many agencies are understaffed for grants development, or lack experience with grant programs that could dramatically increase their capacity to leverage technology to advance their missions and impact their communities. The Samsung Grants Support Program provides hospitals, clinics and other healthcare organizations with grants information, customized funded research, and consultation to help develop project ideas, get technology-rich projects funded, and even expand ongoing initiatives. Organizations interested in engaging a Samsung Grants Development Consultant to help navigate the grant funding landscape should connect with Samsung’s Director of Healthcare Sales & Solutions, Ken Honeycutt, at email@example.com, or by visiting samsung.com/healthcare for more information.
