City of Hope has launched a network of digital signs that share information customized for different areas of the campus. The monitors will replace the printed flyers and posters that staff members currently use in these areas to communicate with patients, employees, physicians and researchers about classes and seminars, events and organizational changes.
Thirteen monitors were installed in 11 areas, including the Michael Amini Transfusion Medicine Center, the coffee cart in the Geri & Richard Brawerman Ambulatory Care Center, the cafeteria entrance, the lobby next to City of Hope Helford Clinical Research Hospital’s main entrance, and the information desk and patient waiting area in the Main Medical Building.
“Digital signage has the potential to become an integral part of City of Hope’s patient communications and add to our ability to communicate with employees and physicians, as well,” said Frank Simmons, senior director of Web marketing. “This technology can be a vital component of internal communications impacting patient safety, total patient experience and staff performance.”
