Health Care Self-Serve Technology Benefits
With the intention of speeding up the process of hospital or clinic waiting time, tablet kiosks should be made available to larger hospitals that have a larger flow of people on a day to day basis.

Benefits of having health care kiosks include but are not limited to:
- Reduced health care administrative cost
- Optimization of staff management
- Serving more patients and speeding up the wait times
- Collecting patient data in an integrated infrastructure
