Patient Status Boards - Latest Use of Navigo® Digital Signage

Share Article

Interactive Touchscreen Solutions, Inc.'s Navigo Suite of Products continues to utilize third party data sources to display live information, ensuring the most up-to-date information is available to target audiences.

Navigo digital signage eliminates redundant data entry and assists management by continuing to integrate with customers’ existing data systems to pull and display pertinent information to target audiences, including patient loved ones.

At St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland, in Highland, IL, Navigo pulls patient status information, in real time, from the hospital’s third party patient tracking system. As part of the Navigo design, the hospital now offers an immediate and private way to offer updates on patients through the digital display. The third party system already assigns a unique numeric code for each patient at check-in. Family and loved ones are provided the numeric code and instructed to refer to the Navigo digital display in the waiting room for patient updates.

“The Navigo solution offers peace of mind to patient loved ones and frees up medical staff to focus on their patients,” said Natalie Bobila, ITS vice president sales and marketing. “Getting immediate reassurance on your loved ones is priceless. Maintaining patient confidentiality is essential. The Navigo solution offers both.”

With installations at healthcare, educational, commercial, government and private facilities, Navigo has always integrated with a variety of existing datasources ensuring the most up-to-date information is available and eliminates data management redundancy. Integrating with security system databases ensures Navigo displays the most accurate tenant directory. MS Outlook integration allows Navigo to display events, meetings, court proceedings and other pre-scheduled activities.

Whether the goal is providing reassurance or offering environmental and energy consumption data, the Navigo Suite of products puts your existing data systems on display.

WB Muncy Elementary School, in Louisville, KY, uses Navigo as a LEED® educational tool for students. The Navigo digital sign displays various presentations about energy consumption, conservation tips and other “Green” topics. Since Navigo is BACNet compatible, the most current energy consumption data is pulled from the school’s maintenance systems and displayed in real time. Live information shown on the Navigo digital sign include energy consumption in kilowatts, solar panel energy produced, water supply to be transferred to the school and current hot versus cold water usage at the school.

“Our systems are designed to constantly be of service to the user and the managers," Bobila added. “Ensuring that the most up-to-date information is always being displayed, it is imperative that Navigo allows for data integration and other live information such as RSS feeds, TV broadcasts and emergency preparedness alerts.”
