Technology is a major part of healthcare today. Visionality can help to incorporate audiovisual technology into healthcare organization to improve communications, to ensure patient health, safety and privacy, and to assist in the training process.
As technology has improved, telemedicine has become more widely used to connect patients to the medical help they need. Patients such as those in rural areas, homebound patients and patients in prison can be evaluated via videoconference by doctors and nurses who can diagnose them and prescribe a course of treatment. This technology can also be a cost saving tool for organizations as it reduces the need to transport patients in many situations.
Mobile carts are everywhere in hospitals today as nurses, medical technicians and doctors use computers to record medicines taken, take vital signs, and record other pertinent patient information which they can share with other medical professionals involved in the patient’s care. Mobile carts can also be used for video collaboration with doctors and nurses at different locations to ensure the best care for the patient.
Patient privacy is critically important to healthcare organizations. Sound masking technology produces unobtrusive background sound that reduces the intelligibility of human speech, so conversations cannot be overhead in places where personal information is being discussed, such as hospital admission areas and consultation spaces.
Training in the healthcare field is a critical and ongoing process as technologies and procedures are frequently changing and evolving. It can be expensive and challenging for organizations to ensure that all of their staff receives the training they need when there are many differing schedules to work around, and budgets are often tight.
Visionality can help organizations meet those challenges by designing audiovisual solutions that include videoconferencing systems, monitors and interactive whiteboards for training facilities. Staff members in different locations can all receive the training when their schedule allows and travel costs are minimized.
