Patient Safety Increases Whens Signs, Instructions Go Digital

Patient safety can be increased at skilled nursing homes, hospitals, and assisted living centers by installing digital signage through out the building.

Digital signs improve patient satisfaction, safety, and staff morale. Some of the primary uses of digital signage in healthcare settings are:

  • safety
  • information boards
  • patient tracking
  • entertainment

Digital signage is a big help because it clearly shows where to go and how to get there. It also provides simple, easy to understand communication to aged populations burdened with chronic illness.

Patient Safety: Keeping Patients At Ease

Safety is critical in any healthcare environment, and digital signage helps increase safety. One of the benefits of digital messaging is that it can be sent to all areas in real time. Digital displays can also broadcast healthcare messages and provide patient education, information and updates in real time. Families with loved ones in a skilled nursing facility are also at ease, knowing that there is constant communication between staff and patients.

 

Patient Safety: Leads To Patient Satisfaction

One of the most important transformations happening in healthcare right now is the move to value-based care. This transformation is multi-faceted,  and is likely to change the way that healthcare provides services. Moreover it will also determine the level of patient satisfaction of your facility.

 

Recently, CMS, (The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare (CMS)  released a tool called the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS). This tool can help nursing facilities and hospitals collect and measure information related to patient satisfaction.

 

Helping patients easily navigate the facility, as well as informing and entertaining them and their visitor, helps to increase patient satisfaction.                Their feedback helps healthcare providers improve the coordination of health, therapy, and social programs.  Keeping patients safe and happy also boosts their satisfaction and is great for their health.
