4) Digital Boards for Staff Communication
Digital signage technology can be used for more than just enhancing the visitor experience. It can also be used to elevate the experience for nurses, doctors, and other healthcare staff. Digital signage can also be used in staff lounges for the purpose of announcements, training, birthdays and anniversaries, and team member highlights, as well as in the office as huddle boards.
Digital huddle boards are used to update healthcare professionals at the beginning of a new shift, as well as provide real time updates throughout a patient’s stay. Upon arriving at the office, nurses and doctors can be immediately informed on a patient’s progress via the digital huddle board, which can be efficiently updated by staff. This eliminates the need for old fashioned white boards where updates can be time consuming, disorganized, and mistakenly erased.
Along with many other patient management systems, 22Miles is also able to integrate with Epic, the preferred electronic medical records system used by more than 250 healthcare organizations across the world. Epic allows for one chart to follow a patient throughout their medical journey, allowing for an opportunity to streamline and standardize care. It also allows for more accessible communication between the healthcare professional and the patient.
