How digital signage can benefit the health sector

Our digital signage is an effective communication tool that can provides a wide range of benefits for a variety of industries – including the health sector. In fact, with the increasing use of technology in healthcare, today digital signage has become an integral part of hospital operations, as well as the day-to-day actions of pharmacies and GP surgeries. So, here at Scanlite, we’ve listed a few of the ways in which our digital signage solutions can benefit the health sector.

Improve communication

One of the primary benefits of digital signage in the health sector is that it can improve communication between patients, visitors, and healthcare professionals. Crucially, it can display important information such as directions, visiting hours, and emergency alerts in a clear and concise manner. It can also provide real-time updates on wait times, patient care, and other critical information. That can be instrumental in helping to reduce anxiety and frustration in patients and their families, in what are often very highly emotionally-charged environments.

What’s more, the same can also be said of our pharmacy crosses, as these provide pharmacies with the ideal platform from which to display useful information to passers-by – for example opening hours, or locations for flu jabs when the winter rolls around.

Enhance patient experience

Our digital signage can enhance the patient experience by providing a more engaging and interactive environment for them. For example, digital signage can display educational content, health tips, and patient testimonials, which can help patients to feel more involved and relaxed with their care. Digital signage can also provide entertainment options such as TV shows, movies, and music. It might sound a bit more trivial when compared with their other uses, but in healthcare environments, it’s equally vital – it can help patients to pass the time during their hospital stay, providing them with a welcome distraction and keeping their stress levels down, particularly if they’re faced with a potentially lengthy spell in the waiting room.

Increase operational efficiency

Digital signage can increase operational efficiency of your premises by automating the distribution of information. For example, our digital signage can display schedules, patient updates, and other important information such as health notices and instructions for emergency scenarios, thereby reducing the need for manual updates and paper-based communication. Digital signage can also be used to manage the flow of patients by displaying wait times, triage information, and other relevant data that can help in maintaining an air of calm and order.

Promote health and wellness

Digital signage can be used to promote health and wellness by displaying information about healthy living, disease prevention, and self-care. Our digital signage can help you display information about healthy eating, exercise, and stress management, all of which can help to prevent chronic diseases. It can also be used to promote health screenings and vaccination programs, which can help to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

As healthcare continues to evolve, our digital signage will become an even more important tool for improving patient care and satisfaction as the years go on. Looking to get ahead of the curve? That’s where we can help.
