IPTV for Hospitals
The complete picture in patient infotainment.
Create Better Patient, Visitor, and Staff Experiences
IPTV Delivers the Optimum Platform
Consumer demand for improved access to information anytime, anywhere, through any device has also transformed how we watch television. Today’s patients now expect a similar at-home multi-media experience while hospitalized.
Entertain, Inform, and Educate
By providing higher quality television services, patient satisfaction in your health system can be greatly enhanced while achieving health system objectives such as:
• Advance quality, safety, and efficiency goals
• Engage patients and family
• Improve care coordination, and population health
• Maintain privacy and security of patient health information
Infotainment On Demand
IPTV combines your television system and IT network for a customizable and streamlined content distribution solution. Patients can control their TV with a pillow speaker or with a tablet that is integrated with their EMR system. Designed to elevate the patient and visitor experience, TeleHealth Services’ PXi Patient Infotainment solution includes:
- A Customizable Interactive Program Guide (point and click)
- Foreign Language Menus
- Movies On Demand
- Music Genres On Demand
- Noise/Sound Reduction, Relaxation, and Sleep Calming Content
- Hospital Custom Videos On Demand
- Hospital-wide Messaging (Welcome Information, Reminders, or Alerts)
- Option for Casting from Patient Tablet to TV
With the television as part of your IT network, you can easily and completely customize the patient and visitor experience, cost efficiently.
Targeted Hospital Information and Visual Branding
Customized Communication with Your Audience
Patient, visitor, and staff televisions throughout your facility can display key public health messages, hospital information, and valuable services offered that support your community.
ADDED RESPONSIVENESS TO PATIENT REQUESTS
The patient user interface can be configured to automatically direct non-clinical patient requests (environmental services, ice chips, etc.) triggered by tablet or pillow speaker to appropriate service teams.
Integrated Patient Education
Proven to Foster Better Outcomes
IPTV delivers the optimal platform for a more advanced and empathetic patient education experience with our TigrPX solution. Patients choose their own user interface (with just one click) for more personalized interaction with the system.
TigrPX also integrates with other clinical information systems (ADT, EMR, CPOE, etc.) to assign patients condition-specific videos and document patient care plan activity for improved clinical workflows and better health outcomes.
Patients Access a Wealth of Content
With IPTV, media is streamed in small batches directly from the source. As a result, a client media player—i.e., a patient’s bedside television—can begin displaying content before an entire source file has been transmitted. This provides patients with immediate access to virtually unlimited programming/content.
More Efficient Use of Staff Resources
Ideal for new construction and renovation projects, IPTV offers an enterprise-wide cost-effective television solution with substantial installation and system management advantages. For example, built-in scalability makes IPTV inherently faster and easier to deploy thereby conserving valuable technical staff resources.
"Patient television platforms should not simply be viewed as a passive source of entertainment, but rather as an opportunity to be a primary method to communicate with patients and actively enhance experience."
Positive Distraction During the Inpatient Experience
Peer-reviewed research shows how patient satisfaction is favorably impacted by television.
