Digital signage is the best medium to improve our service level by providing patients and visitors with instant information and leading patients and visitors to their destination quickly.
(Vocus) May 5, 2010
Onze-Lieve-Vrouwziekenhuis Aalst (OLV Hospital), a large hospital which is famous for having accomplished the Belgium King’s heart surgery, has successfully deployed CAYIN digital signage solutions in its newly constructed building. The installation aims to assist the Hospital in establishing efficient information delivery platform, improving service level, boosting interactions, and providing visitors and patients with a more comfortable environment.
Eight CAYIN SMP-WEBPLUS digital signage players placed in reception areas have been adopted to control the playback contents of ten 40” and 65” NEC screens. Information including doctors’ names, departments, and possible schedule for visit hours is shown keeping visitors and patients updated with all the latest information.
Not limited to a one-way information broadcasting system, SMP-WEBPLUS will be extended to integrate with touch screens in the second phase of construction and therefore, will provide more interactivities and convenience. Through simple clicks on touch screens, visitors and patients can easily find information such as doctors’ visit hours, direction guide (floor plan), facilities’ (hospital’s) introductions, etc.
“Thanks to VSV Belgium (distributor of CAYIN solutions), Vanerum Sign & Display (installer), and Vanerum IMS (content designer) who have contributed a lot to this project, the installation was carried out successfully and the performance of this system is very satisfying”, said Mr. Peter Coppens in the Technical Dept. at OLV Hospital. “Digital signage is the best medium to improve our service level by providing patients and visitors with instant information and leading patients and visitors to their destination quickly.”
SMP-WEBPLUS, CAYIN’s web-based digital signage player, can support such functions as playback 720p HD video, Flash® animation, and HTML web page on portrait or landscape displays. It can integrate with database and HID compliant touch screens, enabling the hospital manager to further provide interactive digital signage in the second phase of deployment.
“Management is easier and cost-saving now”, said Peter Coppens. “Each player can be controlled remotely by a web-based user interface via a wired/wireless network. To change contents, our colleagues only need to change the html content by inputting information into a central database.”
