Digital Signage Federation Launches Educational Program Series Designed for Healthcare Professionals with “Healthcare 101: A Day In the Life of a Hospital”

dsf-logo-1012The Digital Signage Federation is launching a comprehensive educational program designed specifically for professionals and institutions in the healthcare industry. In addition to a robust resource platform that offers a “getting started” guideline, articles and white papers, photographic installation examples, the webinar program debuts on Thurs., Oct. 25 at 2 pm EDT, featuring Tomer Mann, senior consultant, Tech Alliance Consulting and Richard Ventura, director of sales for vertical solutions, NEC Display Solutions of America.

The efficient flow of information within a healthcare facility is a significant problem that most practices face. Whether it is relaying information from patient to doctor, doctor to pharmacist or administrator to staff, there are many avenues in which the line of communication can break down. Digital signage networks provide a simple, effective and even life-saving way in which to organize and distribute information along the different pathways housed within a healthcare facility.

This webcast will give a basic introduction into the various capabilities of digital signage in healthcare facilities and how to maximize its overall benefits. Questions such as how to offer a mix of dynamic content and engaging ads to reach patients in waiting rooms, how to help visitors navigate large facilities using wayfinding, improving the check-in process using kiosks and how to use digital signage to train staff during off-hours will be discussed and examined from a variety of viewpoints.

Viewers who attend this webinar can expect to learn, among other things:

  • How to use interactive and static wayfinding directories within the facility to help visitor navigation
  • Ways to use video walls and boards for donor & endowment recognition
  • Enterprise capabilities for system-wide deployments
  • Using digital place-based networks for patient and staff communication channels

Ventura, who co-chairs the DSF Advocacy & Outreach Committee said, “Designing, implementing and managing digital signage systems that address the complex needs of the variety of stakeholders in any healthcare institution can be challenging.”

In addition to the webcast presentations there is a wealth of information on various applications, articles, white papers and other resource materials for educational professionals to reference on the DSF website.
