Elo Introduces DICOM-Compliant Touchscreen Displays

Elo, a provider of interactive solutions, has announced a set of DICOM Part 14-compliant medical-grade touchscreen monitors designed to enhance clinical review for hospitals, clinics, pharmacies and health care providers seeking to speed their workflow with the benefits of interactivity. Sleek and durable, the 03-Series monitors deliver accurate image reproduction ideal for EMRs, image viewing, clinical collaboration and for integration into medical solutions.

“From medical devices and operating theaters to nurse stations and patient rooms, Elo’s touchscreens expedite workflow and enhance patient engagement in a variety of healthcare settings,” said Jeff Fountaine, director of health care at Elo. “It made sense to develop a DICOM-compliant touchscreen now, in response to provider demand and evolving software capabilities incorporating interactivity into traditionally static workflows.”

Elo displays bring a fresh industrial design, feature set and price point enabling enhanced patient interaction at the point-of-care. From analyzing X-rays and scans to reviewing vitals, lab results and medical history, adding touchscreens into clinical review creates workflow efficiencies while improving the patient and provider experience. To ensure providers and patients can view clear, accurate and consistent medical images, Elo’s Medical Monitors are pre-calibrated to meet the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) secondary display guidelines in compliance with the DICOM 14 GSDF curve.

The new medical grade DICOM-compliant touchscreen monitors are available in 19-, 22-, 24- and 27-inch sizes and deliver a reliable, easy-to-sanitize solution with an IP-54 rating to seal out dirt, dust and liquids. An IEC 60601-compliant power supply comes standard along with Elo’s 3-year warranty. To learn more, visit
