No matter what type of technology your healthcare space has integrated, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of writing down all the information you need on a whiteboard. Most of us think of whiteboards in simplistic ways, however different types of whiteboards can be a powerful productivity tool for many spaces in your building, from patient rooms, nurse stations, and hospital break rooms.
