Lancaster, PA (PRUnderground) May 11th, 2011
Sierra View District Hospital, a full-service acute care facility located in Porterville, California, has deployed an advanced digital signage system to improve their inner-hospital communication platform. Working with ConnectedSign, a prominent integrator of Digital Signage systems, the hospital now has the ability to reach their patients, visitors, and staff more effectively by updating their digital signage screens with announcements, schedules, menus and much more.
Previously, the hospital had used flyers and posters on easels in the main lobby and café areas to display information. In an effort to eliminate clutter and better engage the hospital community in a more direct and efficient way, Tim Mora, the I.T. Educator at Sierra View District Hospital, set out to find a solution. After researching different companies within the digital signage industry, Mora chose to work with ConnectedSign on the project.
“ConnectedSign seemed to be the most knowledgeable and have the best options for us”, Mora stated.
To the hospital staff, the elimination of posters and flyers was the obvious solution – and a change was necessary. “We felt it looked tacky and the easels cluttered the walkways”, Mora remarked. After the signage deployment, the digital screens received positive feedback. “The staff admits that they are more likely to read the information on the screen than they did on the signs and flyers. It also looks more professional and pleasing to the eye.”
The new signage system, comprised of electronic screens located in the main lobby, café, and Coffee Corner, uses static screens and video to deliver information to patients, guests, and hospital staff. The lobby signage is not only used to display announcements and bulletins, but also shows the conference room schedule for those coming in for meetings and classes.
