Healthcare providers know how important a safe, great experience is for patients and their overall satisfaction.

One creative solution that benefits the healthcare experience is to roll in entertainment and telehealth solutions to patients. Growing in popularity, telehealth and entertainment healthcare carts are being used more often in many types of facilities to delight patients and provide a safe experience.

Hospital TVs Safely Display Consistent Communications

Posted by Kenna Goodrich on Jul 26, 2021 9:48:19 AM

How many times have you created a handout and printed the final copies, just to get a call with more edits?

Luckily, utilizing smart technology, such as digital displays, in place of paper is beneficial in many scenarios and has become more commonplace, i.e. restaurant menus, building location signage or digital business cards. Similar digital displays allow healthcare facilities personnel to share important messages to patients, visitors and even staff.
