Woman’s Hospital implements interactive patient network

Broadcast Engineering is reporting that:

The Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge, LA, has implemented a networked interactive patient system.

The ACCESS system, provided by Skylight Healthcare Systems, is a hospital-specific digital signage network providing customized entertainment, communication and education centers in each patient’s room.

The solution turns standard television sets in patient rooms into communication centers using a specialized, integrated remote control and a custom wireless keyboard. Patients and family members can receive information about the hospital, the medical staff and their stay. Patients can directly contact appropriate departments throughout the hospital and access an extensive library of educational videos on new baby care, specific conditions and at-home treatment plans.
