Digital waiting area screens for hospitals and larger healthcare providers

Keeping your patients fully informed

Patients’ and visitors’ anxiety levels within hospitals can be dramatically lowered when they are provided with adequate information about their visit, and with ‘diversions’ such as digital signage screens showing TV and other relaxing content. The dog-eared copies of last year’s magazines that used to adorn so many waiting areas can finally be sent for recycling.

Instead, digital signage is now commonly used in engaging, informing and entertaining patients and visitors with a combination of video, text, graphics, news and other content.

What does PatientINFO do?

Sedao PatientINFO is a patient messaging and information system that provides Hospitals and larger healthcare providers with a flexible, scalable way of keeping patients and other service users fully informed while they are on your premises. Notify them of procedures within a given department, update them about waiting times, provide general NHS self-help information or promote ancillary services – perhaps alongside live TV or almost any other form of digital content. The possibilities are endless. Some examples of what you might want to show include:

  • Waiting times currently being experienced in a particular waiting area
  • Way-finding and directional signage
  • NHS and DoH campaign posters and videos
  • Highlight the ‘Doctor on Duty’ with their name, profile and qualifications
  • Patient calling – either automatically (when integrated with an existing patient management or patient flow system) or with a few simple keystrokes in seconds.
  • Promote alternative care services – such as a GP or re-direct patients to NHS Direct, to help in relieving your own hospital’s resources of unnecessary pressure
  • Specific departmental information concerning procedures – such as notices not to eat anything later than two hours before your appointment etc.
  • Self-help notices – to encourage healthy eating and exercise, stopping smoking and more
  • Information promoting valuable third party websites such as Change4Life, etc.
  • Live TV such as news or entertainment programmes (a Freeview receiver is required)
  • Local bus timetables and taxi service phone numbers
  • Local business advertisements

Play anything you need to

Designed especially for use within the Secondary Care sector, PatientINFO can display any number of vital messages, including NHS posters, live TV, web pages, images, scrolling texts and even RSS feeds. It can also be scheduled to run different messages at different times of day or night, with different messages on different screens, located anywhere they are needed.

  • More immediate – Communicate as soon as you need to. It takes seconds to update messages, and there's no need to pin notices on several notice-boards
  • More optimal use of resources – Use your consulting rooms more efficiently, make changes to room allocations when circumstances demand, and communicate them instantly to patients and staff
  • More energy-efficient – Sedao's digital signage players have low power consumption, preventing undue environmental impact and ensuring more cost-efficient 'always-on' usage
  • More affordable – Sedao's PatientINFO can be run on your existing IT infrastructure (and will adhere to your own IT network and security policies). With a 'perpetual' 30-year site licence costing a fraction of what many competitors charge for just a 3-year licence, Sedao also offers one of the most affordable enterprise-wide digital signage solutions available
