Healthcare around the world has been subject to many improvements and the leading hospitals and medical institutions have embraced technology wholeheartedly. Communication is a major aspect of good healthcare today simply because proper organization is essential for the coordinated management of all the various departments.

Digital signage is vastly being used today for the communication purposes. It is nothing but a digital sign that can be either used to keep the patients and the families updated about anything related to the services or simply used as a display board where any vital information can be flashed. This no doubt reduces the requirements of announcements or person- to- person conversation.

Digital signs can be controlled from a distance, either through the internet or an in- house intranet connection. Any kind of display like television, LCDs, white screens or monitors can be used to flash the digital sign. It can be used for entertainment as well, if required, like in the waiting room. But one can choose which content to display, unlike a television. Installing one in any healthcare department can serve the purpose of notifying of the waiting people, inform them about an important development or act as a message board for the doctors and nurses of their duty is required urgently somewhere.

The advantage of the digital signage depends much on the location where they are installed. Putting up a huge monitor right beside the operating room will not attract a lot of attention because the families of the patients will be too distracted and tensed to register anything else. The screen size is also important. Sometimes a small screen at eye level can be much more useful than a bigger screen installed at the far corner.

Try and use fonts that are bigger and sharper, and free from unnecessary ornamentation. The same can be said about the content- it has to be sharp and precise. Although the first requirement of a digital signage might just be to display static images, slideshows or screen shots of medicinal advertisements of simple healthcare tips, see that it can play MP4 and MPEG2 images, because you never know when a video playing might be required.

All these advantages can be a good reason to install digital signage in healthcare, rather than putting up standalone kiosks and billboards beside the counters. It definitely gives a much more edgier and contemporary feel to the healthcare institution.

Also there are number of free Digital Signage software available for healthcare sector, school, public service and enterprises.
