The right digital signage solution can improve patient experiences in healthcare organizations by expediting patient check-in, providing useful healthcare tips, and keeping patients entertained to reduce perceived waiting times. Not only that, but by offering digital wayfinding screens and self-service kiosks, time is freed up for busy staff to focus on tasks that matter more.
Benefits of Using Digital Signage in Hospitals
Digital signage software for hospitals can be used to improve the patient experience and reduce the amount of help they need from staff.
Sharing curated content via digital signs makes it easy to communicate in an engaging way that will keep patients entertained and staff informed.
Improve Patient Experiences
Provide a pleasant patient experience by using digital signs for easy wayfinding, fast self check-in, and communicating estimated wait times. Playing dynamic content on digital signs to capture patients’ focus while they wait can help reduce potential anxiety about their appointment, and leave a positive impression of your healthcare brand.
Reduce Perceived Wait Times
Use digital displays in waiting rooms to keep patients and visitors entertained to reduce their perceived wait time. Broadcast infotainment content, doctor and staff bios, and entertainment programs to help them pleasantly pass the time.
Improve Internal Staff Communications
Busy staff may not have time to check emails, and paper flyers in the break room won’t always get their attention. Amplify employee communications with eye-catching digital signs to notify staff about policy changes, schedules, important updates, and more, to keep your teams up-to-date on what they need to know. Additionally, you can localize all of this content via Onsite - our revolutionary localized digital signage content management system.
Educate and Inform
Use curated educational content to both entertain and inform patients while they wait. Feature educational content with different themes each month, content aligned with a certain speciality, or basic health and wellness tips. You can also share news about services, promotions, or upcoming events. Updating digital signage through a cloud-based cms makes it easy to change promotions and campaigns as often as you like.
Uses for Digital Displays in Healthcare Settings
Digital displays have countless uses — customize your solution to include anything from video walls that share wellness tips and local news with waiting patients, to kiosk touchscreens for self check-in, to interactive directories that guide visitors where they need to go. Whether they are used for efficiency or entertainment, digital displays provide many enhancements to hospitals and healthcare facilities.
Interactive Kiosk Displays
Empowering patients with interactive kiosks not only helps them check-in faster, but takes the burden of administrative tasks from your staff.
Patients can check in, update their health and payment information, and schedule follow-up appointments all from one convenient touchscreen.
Digital Signage and Wayfinding
Guide patients through the facility with the help of digital wayfinding signs.
Interactive directories and turn-by-turn directions help patients find their way faster, getting them to appointments on time and keeping staff schedules running smoothly.
Digital Menu Boards
Improve efficiency in the cafeteria with digital menu boards.
Draw attention to daily specials and promotions, and clearly display required nutritional and allergen information. With the ability to update digital signs in real-time, it’s easy to remove out-of-stock items and add new ones as needed.
Marketing & Promotion for Your Practice
Providing a good patient experience is the best kind of promotion for your practice, and digital signage makes it easy to do just that.
Digital signs can also be used to promote partners, other services offered, and feature staff bios to create a more personal connection with patients.
