10 Ways to Use IP Video & Digital Signage for a COVID-safe Healthcare Setting

Covid-safe healthcare setting

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare facilities have had to entirely re-adjust their working practices in preparation for an influx of COVID patients, while also aiming to treat patients in the same way, and with the same high level of care they would have done before.

Technology has played an even more critical role in the healthcare industry than could have ever been imagined. With fewer numbers of visitors going through the doors or being available to provide frequent face-to-face communication, IPTV technology and Digital Signage solutions have become important tools to help welcome and inform visitors, patients and staff on where they need to go, the location of hand washing and hand sanitiser stations, and other vital health and safety information.

With the vaccination programme underway across the world, healthcare practitioners can use IPTV technology to effectively communicate the latest information and news as well as to assist with training. For patients that are unable to have loved ones visit them in hospital, IPTV technology has provided them with bedside entertainment, essential communication, and a chance to connect with the outside world, despite being physically separated.
