Electronic shelf labels for improved hospital hygiene
Electronic labels help facilitate various labeling requirements in hospitals and are not only visually pleasing, but also more hygienic than classic print labels due to their paperless nature and easy cleaning processes. The use of RFID bracelets is also beneficial in this regard. Individually printed for each patient, they are only used once and allow for contactless scanning, allowing hygienic patient identification.
Digital management: E-Ink displays for digital room signage
Nursing staff in hospitals are not only tasked with patient care, but even more so with patient management. Bed allocation in particular, and the associated manual room signage, lead to high administrative costs and waste of valuable time. E-Ink displays replace cumbersome paper door signs with a flexible, innovative and digital signage solution and can also aid in wayfinding. The individual update of the room occupancy requires just a few clicks and is displayed almost in real-time on the associated screen. With digital displays, relevant data for doctors, hospital staff, patients and visitors is always up-to-date and transparent. Digital signage also ensures efficient and secure treatment processes, as available patient or treatment rooms can be immediately identified, displayed and updated through a content management system from a single PC in the reception area or through touch screens. This leaves more time for customer and patient interaction and care.
Digital room signage as an effective room booking system for conferences
Digital Signage can also act as a high-quality digital room booking system for conferences and meetings. Current event information, as well as upcoming bookings and updates, can be integrated dynamically and centrally through one software application. Additionally, E-Ink Displays can show a wide range of detailed information in an eye-catching manner, such as title or duration of a conference or even the name of the speaker. A huge benefit of digital signage solutions is their long operating time, secure cloud-based data transfer and storage, low power consumption through e-paper technology and the countless placement possibilities of the screens. The hardware's simple infrastructure does not require cabling, allowing easy Installation of the E-Ink displays almost anywhere. In case of a power outage, the digital screens remain stable and functional.
Benefits of electronic shelf labels for hospitals and patients
E-Ink displays help to ease the workload of hospital staff in a cost-effective way by centralizing labeling processes traditionally done by hand. In addition to digital room signage, digital signs also create the possibility of digital employee plans which offer staff a clear overview of their working hours, holiday replacements and shift colleagues. Spontaneous changes due to illness or unforeseen absences can quickly be made through the backend system or digital signage software and displayed immediately on the digital screens in staff rooms or on handhelds.
With the help of digital signage, staff can also easily update bed allocation or treatment rooms for new and long term patients, which leaves more time for actual patient interaction and care. Furthermore, interactive digital signage, showing various floors or hospital areas, helps visitors make their way around the building without having to stop staff about directions.
Digital displays ultimately lead to faster action with less effort and enhance the quality of work processes overall. Digital signage solutions are considered long-term investments to change and improve in-house time and room management in hospitals, as well as public spaces.
