Many facilities now use digital signage to efficiently update staff across various locations, including break rooms, treatment zones and admission areas. These displays can quickly distribute critical information such as policy changes, patient information, staff rosters, operation schedules, ongoing training opportunities, human resources information and, perhaps most critically, patient intake statuses.
By linking digital signage to hospital management systems, these critical updates can be dynamically created and displayed on defined screens with little human interaction – saving time and effort. Another big plus for digital signage in an evolving situation is that an organisation can easily add more screens to the network and update these remotely in real time. And, critically, digital signage can be used to trigger emergency alerts and messaging.To effectively deal with individuals who still require treatment at medical facilities worldwide amid ongoing social distancing requirements and other restrictions, many healthcare providers are finding new ways to interact with visitors and patients through innovative IPTV and digital signage technologies.
“You could say the timing was challenging,” comments Laura Moorhead, Senior Account Executive at, Neurilink. “But we just had to adapt, as everyone else was at the time. We had such a great team on the project that we just worked through the situation together to make sure we delivered successfully on the project.”
Each of the new patient rooms in the new wing at Overlake contains a hospital-grade display complete with a simple, intuitive user interface custom-designed by the team. For convenience, the menu is navigated with the ‘nurse call’ pillow-speaker remote so that a single device is all that is needed for the patient to be in full control.
Having the right technologies in place to manage and provide effective and safe communications, whether to personal devices or onsite in public and closed areas at hospitals, clinics, and other facilities, has been essential.
