Hughes Signage

Digital Messaging Solutions for Healthcare

Resource Type

An integral part of the HughesON portfolio of managed network solutions for the unique needs of the distributed agency, HughesON MediaSignage blends dynamic video, text, and graphics on a network of digital signs to deliver communications to patients, employees, and guests. Medical facilities can leverage HughesON MediaSignage to publish news, medical information, and facility announcements—all at the same time to any number of locations. No matter how they use it, medical facilities can be confident they are sending the right message to the right audience, at the right time.

Patient/Guest Communications

HughesON MediaSignage provides an effective medium to make announcements, provide instructions, and communicate important information to patients and guests in patient rooms, lobbies, reception areas, and waiting rooms.

Employee Communications and Training

Getting critical information out quickly to a large, distributed workforce has always been a challenge. But hospitals that use HughesON MediaSignage as a “digital message board” can easily keep employees informed and up-to-date with the latest information. In addition, medical facilities can provide both live and on-demand employee training.

Emergency Communications

An iPhone application enables hospital network administrators to use iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad® devices to instantly disseminate critical information and emergency notifications. Administrators can predefine messages and update their entire HughesON MediaSignage network to display messages. Interaction is supported via high-performance viewer response systems, including audioconferencing and integrated voice/data response.

Hughes takes a comprehensive approach to digital signage—from project design and consulting, to content creation and management, to best-of-breed software, hardware, and the managed network services to connect it all together. Plus, every HughesON MediaSignage solution includes installation, maintenance, and customer support.
