Video of Econo-Keys Washable Keyboard Demo at HIMSS 10

I must admit that the thing I probably wanted to see most on the HIMSS exhibit floor was these washable keyboards. I can’t tell you how many times my nurses have asked for a way to wash their keyboards. Plus, it didn’t hurt that I had a way to get a free washable keyboard for myself too.

You can check out the washable keyboards I found from Econo-keys at their website. They have some pretty creative products when it comes to keeping keyboards clean. I tried out the typing myself and didn’t have any problem adapting to the keyboard. I thought it might be a challenge, but it wasn’t. Ok, enough of my talk, check out this video showing off the product and then read to the bottom for the free giveaway:

This video coverage of HIMSS 10 sponsored by Practice Fusion and their Free EMR.

The best news of all is that I was able to convince the good people at Econo Keys to give me a couple extra free washable keyboards to give away on EMR and HIPAA. Yes, that’s right. Your very own free washable keyboard.

In order to enter to win, all you have to do is promote EMR and HIPAA in some way. Maybe you tweet a link, maybe you link to EMR and HIPAA from your blog. Maybe you link to it from an EMR group on LinkedIn. Maybe you’ll be more creative than I. Just let me know what you did to promote the site in the comments and I’ll choose a couple winners from there.

7 more videos from HIMSS on the way shortly.

  • Ooh, the famous washable keyboards. I tried to take the keys off my keyboard last year for a deep clean with air and tweezers, and still haven’t managed to get the F4 key back on. Anything that can be put in the dishwasher is grade A in my book.

    As for the giveaway, does citing your blog yesterday over at Occam’s blog count? Or should I be a little more creative? 😉

  • Michelle,
    I want to say it doesn’t work just so I can see what creative thing you could come up with. Either way, consider yourself entered.

  • I just posted this on facebook saying “If you want to see the coolest thing ever look at or visit . They are promoting at a trade show for the medical field, but for all you who have had kids spill stuff on the keyboard (or friends) it is definately worth a gander… I can also promote this product as we sell EMR Solutions to doctors offices, if I can get a demo model. 😉
