Downview Visual DisplayPatient privacy and security has always been important in the medical health fields and this focus has only increased over time. Since the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) took effect, industry organizations have had to change policies and procedures to afford more protection around patient data. 

To answer the need for increased security and confidentiality, Nova Solutions has created furniture for the office, clinic and training room that makes private data easier to protect. Nova's Visual Display Options include the Downview Visual Display and the Trolley Monitor Lift. These uniquely engineered display mechanisms can be combined with other Nova Solutions products for a comfortable, customized furnishings setup.

  • The Downview Display: Positions the computer monitor below the desk surface at an ergonomically correct angle. The display can be read easily as the user looks down through a tinted glass viewing port at the computer screen below. The individual's head and body remain in a natural and comfortable position that does not create excess muscle strain or fatigue. In a health care setting, the Downview™ provides an added measure of security since the on-screen data is not seen by passers-by.
  • The Trolley Monitor Lift: Smoothly and effortlessly raises/lowers the computer screen (stowed under/within the desk when not in use) with a simple press of the control button. Confidential data is easily removed from sight without the need to shut down the computer.
  • Retrofitting: Custom combinations can be made to fit your needs using the Downview Display or the Trolley monitor lift along with a Nova Solution's study carrel. Use either as a private test-taking desk, or a perfect place for reading or entering patient data without exposing it. Integrate either of the options into your own furniture or unique cabinetry with NOVA's convenient retrofit kit.
