The Customer

Kaiser Permanente is an integrated managed care consortium & it is made up of three distinct groups of entities: the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan; Kaiser Foundation Hospitals; & the
autonomous regional Permanente Medical Groups. As of 2006, Kaiser Permanente is the largest managed care organization in the United States. They have 8.9 million health plan members, 37 medical centers, and 611 medical offices.

The Challenge

Kaiser started a new patient photo program, which means that every patient file will include their picture. For this to work, Kaiser needed an easy way to photograph the patient using the iPad. They wanted a durable arm that was extra-long, and would securely hold an enclosure to display the iPad. It was extremely important that the arm be flexible and adjustable so that the employees could use the iPad at different height levels (patients who are standing or wheelchair bound).

The Solution

Maclocks Flex Arm 24” was custom made for Kaiser based off of the Dynamic Flex Arm solution. The strong steel bendable arm is completely tamper resistant, and it can be mounted to the wall, used in corners, or anywhere counter space is limited. The arm secures the Space Enclosure for iPad Mini, which can be viewed in landscape or portrait view. The Enclosure is constructed of high-grade aluinum, and you can charge your iPad while it is being secured. It can also accommodate any universal cable lock using a built in security slot.


Customer Feedback

“We really want to thank Maclocks for helping us customize a solution for our member photo project. We have the greatest number of patients with photos in their record, and having the right equipment (24” flex arms) truly helped make it happen.”
