Product Info

A Downtime-Workstation Solution for Hospitals & Medical Offices - Medical-Grade Red Keyboard - If your hospital uses Downtime-Workstations for your EMR software, then this specialty Medical-Grade keyboard is a must.

This red keyboard will immediately let staff know which workstation is available during planned and emergency server outages. No little red stickers for doctors and nurses to try and locate. This keyboard eliminates confusion and acts as a bright red beacon during hectic downtime situations.

The E-Cool is identical to the Really-Cool-LP with the added feature of a red design with big bold “Downtime-Workstation” lettering for easy identification.

The firmware is also enhanced with Cool-Connect, to help identify if the keyboard’s USB has been disconnected. Pair with a red Petite Mouse and you have the solution you’ve been waiting for.

Cool-Connect - Provides assurance to IT team that only the E-Cool keyboard is connected at the Downtime-Workstation.

Using Cool-Connect, your IT team can create their own applications to alert them to any removal of the E-Cool keyboard from the Downtime-Workstation, preventing a user from installing a standard keyboard on this special work station.

Petite Mouse - Add a red Petite Mouse to your Downtime-Workstation.

The E-Cool Story

It is great to see an innovative idea that Sentara’s EMR downtime team established, to assist clinicians with Downtime-Workstation identification, become a well-manufactured product that will help other Hospitals be able to easily address the same concern. The red keyboard idea was born from a brainstorming session and the concept about how red phones are used to distinguish them from other phones during a crisis was our prototype. Since discussing our solution and the struggles we had finding red keyboards with Man & Machine, they quickly developed a quality product that met our requirements and streamlined the ordering process. At the end of the day, our clinicians have been very receptive to our solution and our goal for easy identification of the Downtime-Workstations has been achieved.
