Such optimization not only eases the burden on the medical staff, but will also speed up check-in times: and if the destination signs, map diagrams and step-by-step directions from point A to point B are provided on electronic paper technology, you can take it a step further than merely mounting the sign next to the first available electrical socket.
Because e-paper screens have unbelievably low power consumption and can be powered by a rechargeable battery that can run for weeks, they can be mounted in all the places where they are truly needed, be it in the medical centre itself or in the courtyard of a large hospital complex - no wires or cables to hinder installation here. Not to mention the added bonus of a lower electrical bill, meaning that the hospital’s funds can be allocated not to the upkeep of the brick-and-mortar building, but to the actual business of curing people.
What is more, e ink’s paper-like visibility will allow for screen content to be clearly displayed even under fluorescent lights and in direct sunlight, without glare.
Patient inclusion, a dose of the best medicine
But digital is not for maps and directions alone.
Electronic signage can be also used for progressive inclusion and engagement of healthcare facility visitors. Popping up in lobbies, patient rooms and waiting areas of a medical campus, digital signs, especially those perfectly suited to the hospital environment like e-paper, will keep the patient occupied, while also making sure that they get all the information they need, when and where they need it.
