- Digital display system specialist enables patient communication in Manor Way Health Centre waiting room -
LONDON, May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Manor Way Health Centre (Dr Bassett & Partners) has announced it has selected a multimedia digital display system from the healthcare display technology specialist Jayex (http://www.jayex.com/), to visually educate and communicate to waiting patients. The health centre will be able to digitally display informative health messages through LCD digital signage - video, web content, internet TV, graphics and RSS news feeds; all which is 100% within the control of the practice.
Manor Way Health Centre is located within the Lee-on-the-Solent region in Hampshire and works hard to promote additional clinics and services in the community which can assist patients with health-related issues including; podiatry, speech therapy, community nurses, counselling, smoking cessation and much more. Ray Ewen, Practice Manager at Manor Way Health Centre, explains, "The Jayex multimedia digital display technology provides us with the functionality to create and display our own patient communication messages on screen, which will enable the centre to promote and raise awareness of various services to visiting patients. The visual displays are easily configurable enabling us to arrange information that is appropriate to the practice and in accordance with seasonal health topics."
Ewen continues, "We previously had static notice boards in place which were quite often ignored by patients. The multimedia system is far more eye-catching and visually appealing to look at and will hopefully not only increase awareness of community services and clinics available, but also educate patients on current health issues. By capturing more patients in the time between arrival and treatment we hope that the displays will help increase patient communication through outlining the preventative measures that can be taken in relation to various seasonal illnesses."
Manor Way Health Centre initially engaged with Jayex to install the touch screen self check-in and call forward systems. "Following these successful implementations and the continued support we received from Jayex, it seemed sensible to expand our requirements and stay with a product name that we already know and trust," said Ewen.
The multimedia digital display system is supplied with a free and unlimited download subscription to Med-Extranet; Jayex's online healthcare media library which is packed with posters and videos supplied by the NHS and Government agencies. Ewen adds, "I'm a big fan of technology and utilising it to its maximum ability. Jayex Med-Extranet service is fantastic and provides the Practice with easy access to informative healthcare videos and electronic posters, which will ultimately improve the health awareness of our patients. We look forward to working with Jayex in the future to upgrade the system with functionality that will allow us to automatically time specific healthcare messages to be displayed at the same points every year."
Ewen concludes, "Perfectly situated within the reception area, the multimedia digital display system replaces outdated paper-based leaflets and pin boards with visual information. The LCD digital signage health messages being shown entertain waiting patients whilst keeping them up to date and informed with current health topics. Jayex's solutions and high quality service deliver patient communication and efficiencies to Manor Way Health Centre, streamline processes and modernise operations for our staff and our patients."
