Linking Patients to Entertainment and Information
Interactive television systems have dramatically changed the patient experience. The in-room television is now the information and entertainment portal for patients and their families, supporting them to be more active participants in their own care.
Using the Provider Nurse Call pillow speaker, patients and family control the interactive TV, turn room lighting on and off, request assistance, and communicate directly with caregivers. Provider Nurse Call Systems integrate with the most popular interactive TV systems, allowing facilities to choose the system that best meets their needs and to make the selection separate from the nurse call selection. The interactive TV system with Provider nurse call:
- Keeps Patients Entertained and Informed: in addition to entertainment programming, interactive TV systems typically deliver staffing and facility information, health information, pre-op and post-op videos, meal selection, and internet access
- Supports Easy Access from Bed: with the single pillow speaker device, patients can control key in-room systems
- Drives Patient Satisfaction: the personalized interactive TV accessibility combined with streamlined patient to staff alerting and communiction leads to an improved patient experience
