Digital Signage displays are transforming the way that healthcare facilities communicate with staff and patients. Whether they are used for wayfinding or for displaying healthcare information, digital displays offer a chance for hospitals to engage, interact and ultimately improve the whole healthcare experience for a patient. Digital Signage can be displayed in various locations at a hospital or healthcare facility including lobbies, hallways, car parks, canteens and waiting rooms.
Installing an Android Advertising Display in a waiting room can lessen the perceived waiting times for appointments, thus reducing the stress and anxiety that some patients might be feeling. Digital Signage displays can offer some form of entertainment or escape for a patients or visitors. Think of your Digital Signage as a modern and dynamic pin noticeboard, used to display vital health advice and public messages in an organised and dynamic way. Updating the screen couldn’t be easier with the simple USB update method that can be done by any member of staff, regardless of their level of IT knowledge. From integrating a live TV or social media feed to sharing about recent community news and events this kind of information can be targeted towards improving the overall experience in a waiting room.
Wayfinding is a big issue for the healthcare sector. In most situations it is important for doctors, nurses and patients to be able to navigate from point A, to point B as quickly as possible. Hospitals can sometimes feel like a labyrinth even to those who work there. That is why good quality Digital Signage is becoming essential. Interactive Displays like PCAP Touch Screens with Dual OS coupled with our Touch CMS software can help to guide users to their exact destination. Digital Signage is a highly effective communication tool for hospitals and healthcare facilities, providing real time updates, clearing cluttered walls of messy posters, saving on printing costs and reducing your paper waste.
At the time of writing this blog post, there are over 160,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK and this figure is only predicted to rise in coming weeks. While the National Health Service (NHS) is doing an absolutely incredible job, with such a huge influx of patients to treat, as well as over 750,000 NHS Volunteer Responders to coordinate and keep safe, it’s not surprising that hospitals around the country are feeling the pressure. For this reason, it’s vital that we all do our bit to help limit the spread of coronavirus, protecting the NHS and saving lives. . . .

New Gorbals Health and Care Centre is a brand new £17million NHS health centre in Glasgow that recently opened its doors in January 2019. Promoted as a ‘one-stop shop of health and medical services’ the new facility provides access to a range of amenities for the community. Patients now have access to four GP practices, physiotherapy, dental services and child mental health services at the New Gorbals medical centre. In December 2018, while the building was finishing construction, a partner of ours was contacted about an exciting and unique art project for the facility. Local Glasgow based art organisation Wave Particle developed ‘The Portrait Gallery’. This project brings the art gallery to life with over 200 video portraits of local residents engaging with the camera in different ways. . . .
Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is the leading provider of health and social care services for people of all ages living in Surrey.
With the opening of a new building, the Farnham Road Hospital, the Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS trust wanted a Digital Signage screen to deliver their internal communication to both staff and patients. They no longer wanted to use old fashioned and messy looking pin noticeboards and wanted a modern and orderly signage display. They contacted Allsee in August 2015 after we provided Digital Signage screens for the Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Drugs and Alcohol services in 2014. . . .
