A hospital or medical centre visit can sometimes result in patients or visitors having time on their hands. However, with the ability to go online and stay connected with work and home, this could be time put to good use. Couple this with the movements towards leaner processes within the healthcare system and you have the perfect environment for a free WiFi service.
Not only can patients and visitors look up appointment information and check-in, they can also be directed to maps of the premises so that they can move themselves around to the next area for a consultation, therapy or treatment.
What the healthcare sector gets from social WiFi
In addition to helping people find their way around and keeping them updated, hospitals, doctors’ surgeries, dentists and other specialist healthcare providers can engage directly and ask for feedback, to improve the service.
A safe and secure connection means that patient and visitor access is completely separate from the environment used by staff.
The benefits to the the healthcare sector are endless. Providers are able to establish and respond to behavioural trends, deliver key information, track how patients, visitors and staff are moving around or where assets such as, wheelchairs, beds and equipment reside. Medical professionals could gain real-time mobile access to patients records, creating further efficiencies.
