Hospitals can purchase computer workstations without going through capital approval process
Tomball, Texas – SEPTEMBER 25, 2017 – Proximity Systems, Inc., the leading provider of innovative technology furniture solutions to healthcare, today announced upgrades to its Embrace SLIM Wall-Mounted Workstation and its Embrace SLIM Wall-Mounted Workstation with an Open Face at a new, more affordable price point, as well as upgrades to its CX entry-level cabinets. Because the Embrace multi-compartment, wall-mounted workstation cabinets are priced under $1,000 each, hospitals can purchase them without going through capital approval.
The Proximity Embrace line features a unique multi-compartment design that provides hospitals with a locked, secure CPU compartment that can only be accessed by designated hospital personnel. This helps hospitals meet HIPAA requirements for secure client information. The cabinets’ sleek design is aesthetically pleasing and facilitates interactions between caregivers and patients while also helping hospitals maintain and increase their HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) scores.
When strategically placed in patient rooms, ERs, ICUs and other frequented areas, the wall-mounted Proximity Embrace workstations ensure that data is always at caregivers’ fingertips. The in-room cabinets and workstations save time and effort, allowing hospital staff to focus energy on what is important – providing the best care to their patients.
Embrace SLIM Wall-Mounted Workstation offers an upper enclosed compartment designed specifically to store CPUs behind a locked door. Just four-inches deep, it includes continuous air flow to protect equipment from overheating. The lower compartment folds down to provide caregivers with a spacious and comfortable workstation capable of holding up to 400 pounds; the keyboard and mouse dock automatically when the worksurface is closed.
Embrace SLIM Wall-Mounted Workstation with an Open Face offers the same ventilated, four-inch deep upper enclosed compartment for storing CPUs behind a locked door but with an open face design that enables the monitor to be seen even when the cabinet is not being used. The lower compartment folds down to provide caregivers with a spacious and comfortable workstation that supports up to 400 pounds. The keyboard and mouse dock automatically when the worksurface is closed.
At the same time, Proximity also announced updates to two of its entry-level cabinets:
CXD is a four-inch thin document workstation designed for laptops, tablets or charts. Ideal for patient bedside documentation and hallway installations, the unit is priced at $795.
CX1 is a four-inch deep wall-mounted computer workstation that is perfect for space constrained or egress areas. Available with a swivel feature or an exposed fixed monitor mount, the CX1 comes with cable management, keyboard and mouse storage. It is priced at $595 for the fixed monitor mount and at $795 with the swivel feature.
“The upgraded Proximity Embrace cabinets and the CXD and CX1 cabinets all share one common attribute: affordability,” said Steve Reinecke, vice president of strategy and business development, Proximity Systems, Inc. “As Proximity Systems celebrates its 25th anniversary, the company is more committed than ever before to providing highly functional, aesthetically pleasing, products that fit in with both a hospital’s designed environment and its purchasing budget.”

All the upgraded Proximity Systems cabinets are available for purchase through Proximity’s preferred partners, CDW and Connection, as well as other Healthcare IT resellers.
