Digital signage improving patient and staff experience

Healthcare providers are using digital signage and IPTV systems to manage ongoing COVID challenges, and subsequently recognising how AV systems can improve the patient experience, says Colin Farquhar, senior vice-president, Sales, at VITEC, a specialist in end-to-end video streaming.

The past two years have been challenging for just about every healthcare institution in the world. COVID-19 has not only had a seismic impact on hospitals and other medical facilities from the outset of the pandemic, but most have also had to continuously adapt to rapidly evolving and difficult situations. In addition to providing emergency triage for an onslaught of coronavirus cases, and finding beds for the most severe cases, medical providers have also been proactively involved in supporting national vaccination roll-outs

While all this has been happening, healthcare organisations have still had to continue to manage patients with nonCOVID conditions, including those dealing with other severe illnesses, suffering injuries, or otherwise requiring urgent care. Equally, even as the number of the most severe COVID cases has begun to diminish, many healthcare providers are facing a backlog of surgical procedures that have been put off due to tied-up facilities, a lack of manpower, and patient safety concerns.
