Digital signage software for hospitals and healthcare

There has never been a greater need for hospitals and healthcare providers to communicate critical and time-sensitive information. It’s why hospital digital signage displays have become such a common sight. You see them used in lobbies, waiting rooms, outpatient clinics, and other busy areas.

Discover why healthcare professionals rely on the Navori QL digital signage software platform for their frontline content management and messaging needs.

Hospital digital signage solutions aren’t only used for important messages. They can also provide engaging and entertaining content to reduce wait times and improve the patient and visitor experience. Think of check-in information, digital wayfinding, news feeds, special offers on new services, or healthcare program advertisements. Digital displays can also be used for employee communication or to run digital menu boards in the hospital cafeteria.

By showing compelling content, perceived wait times are reduced and this helps improve the patient experience.

Managing a growing healthcare digital signage network can be time consuming and demanding, especially in a busy hospital or clinic. It’s why it’s so important to pick a solution that hospital staff will benefit from and continually use. While QL is very user-friendly, it’s also feature-rich. It offers AI-powered content triggering and automation capabilities to deliver content and messages to your audience.

Frequently Asked questions

How is healthcare digital signage used?

Healthcare digital signage is ideal for communicating with staff, patients, and visitors. Displays can be used to provide strictly informational content, but they may also show entertaining content as well. Displays located in lobbies or waiting rooms can also be interactive, so visitors and patients can register or sign-in, get wayfinding information or search a directory. Digital signs reduce the amount of time and effort put into updating content.

What’s the difference between passive and dynamic content?

Passive or static content refers to media that follows a strict program or playlist. The content can play in sequence or randomly within a pre-programmed playlist. Dynamic content is triggered or inserted in a playlist based on external factors. It can change based on a user-defined rule or some other external factor. For example, a playlist can be interrupted during an emergency for an important message to play.

How do I know if healthcare digital signage is a good option for my hospital?

Digital signage in healthcare can be an asset to any facility. The larger the facility, the more benefits it will gain, which is why it’s crucial to select a digital signage solution that scales well. This way you won’t run into any problems when it’s time to add more digital signs and media player devices.

What kind of content can I use for healthcare digital signage?

Healthcare applications usually benefit from informational content created internally, provided by the local health and social services department or from private sources. Pharmaceutical companies are another source of content that should be considered, as well as infotainment content, such as the local weather, news, and general interest content. In some cases, quizzes and interactive content can be useful to engage the audience and reduce perceived dwell times.

Where can healthcare digital signage be used?

There are many locations in and around medical facilities where digital signage can be installed, such as break rooms and cafeterias, staff meeting rooms, examination rooms, elevators, pharmacies, lobbies, patient and visitor waiting areas, building exteriors, and parking areas.
