Our jaded, product-hating cousins over at the Consumerist covered this story earlier in the week, but apparently one hospital has added computerized check-in kiosks to reduce wait times. Similar to offerings at most modern airports, the touch interface asks patients to choose between options like pain and numbness, following up with a human model for anatomical placement of the symptoms. We're torn—the faster check-ins seem like a great idea. We just hope it doesn't prompt hospitals to cut staff...creating pains in the lower posterior. [consumerist]
