The effectiveness of using whiteboards in healthcare settings is vividly clear, and there have been numerous studies conducted over the years that have supported the evidence-based practices of designing and placing whiteboards in patient rooms.
There’s a lot of research available, and searching for it can take time, that’s why we decided to do most of the legwork! We have compiled some of the most well-regarded studies and research papers available.

Building Your Patient Room BoardWhen designing patient room boards, it’s important to keep in mind how the board will aid in a pleasing aesthetic experience, be placed in a room so it’s easy to read, and be cleaned for infection prevention.
Important information we recommend including on your board: logo, current date, care team, daily goals, discharge information, and pain management.
