Is Your Health Care Office In Need Of A Morale Boost?

The new year has come, which means it’s time to get your healthcare facility back in business. But when you look around, do you see employees who look like they are up to that task?

Boosting morale and efficiency after the holidays can be tough; people have been traveling, partying, celebrating, and generally not thinking about getting work done. That transition back can make things even worse if your facility isn’t designed to encourage and support everyone getting back to work.

How can you help ease your employees back into work while making sure that your clients are getting the attention they need? Try some of these easy upgrades to your healthcare space to get your staff back into the swing of things.

  • Play music at reasonable volumes in open work areas to cut down on ambient noise and help relax and motivate employees.
  • Offer a huddle space that allows employees to get together away from their desks to strategize and brainstorm.
  • Place digital signage around the offices to share information with staff and to celebrate individual accomplishments, awards, or milestones.
  • Use digital scheduling to help employees reserve conference rooms and workspaces, and allow them to control elements like the thermostat and music when they are using them.
  • Allow employees to open or close blinds and windows throughout the office. Using motorized window coverings will let employees do so with the touch of a button, and can allow you to control which blinds can be open and when.
  • Make sure audio solutions in your conference room and throughout the office are allowing clear communication with employees or clients from elsewhere.
  • Help employees and clients feel safe at all times by installing security cameras in your facility, particularly in dark areas like parking garages or hallways.

Audio Visual Solutions To Improve Health Care Office Communication

Is your healthcare facility missing something? Look around, do employees and patients look like they know where they’re going or who they need to speak to?

If not, it’s time to consider audio-visual solutions that will boost communication within your office walls and beyond. These are five ideas to get you started with a range of potential upgrades to make your facility more productive and professional.

1. Intercoms: It’s helpful to have a way for employees to receive information quickly without needing to answer a phone or check an email. Intercoms can help you get information out to anyone, immediately.

2. Video entry systems: If your health care office isn’t a storefront than you may be opening the door remotely each time someone arrives. But if you’re relying on sound rather than video, do you really know who will be walking through your door? With video entry systems you can see who is coming and be ready to welcome them when they arrive.

3. Boardroom and conference room displays: Some of your most important work is done in boardrooms and conference rooms, whether it’s hiring a new employee or presenting to a new client. The right audio setup and video display will help your conference room look and perform at the level you want.

4. Music and entertainment: Do you want your employees to feel better about the day? Or patients to feel happier while in your waiting area? Playing music throughout your facility is easy with the right setup, and can help bring new energy and productivity to everyone who walks through the doors.

5. Directional displays: There’s nothing worse for a client than getting stuck on the wrong floor when trying to make their way around your office. Display signs prominently located near elevators, stairways, and doors will help everyone get around smoothly.

Audio Visual Solutions For Coordinating Huddle Spaces In Healthcare Offices

Having one or more huddle spaces in your healthcare office and facility is a great way to allow employees to collaborate and communicate in settings less formal than conference rooms, and less distracting than offices.

An ideal huddle space has room for several people to sit comfortable, enough desk space that people can write and/or setup laptops, and an audio/video distribution setup so that ideas can easily be shared with the group.

But as with any healthcare office technology, you can’t expect a seamless system to work without some help. These audio visual solutions are ideal for coordinating huddle spaces in your office.

Reserve Spaces Remotely

One of your employees received an email on the way to work regarding an unexpected change that requires the team to meet immediately. Rather than waiting to get onsite, a scheduling app will allow your staff to reserve a room whenever they need to, and from anywhere. As a bonus, that employee could share their huddle room reservation with the rest of the team simultaneously, saving lots of time in the process.

Preprogram Spaces

Rather than fumbling with light switches, monitors, or sound when you’re in a huddle room, what if they could be preprogrammed with your settings beforehand? Allow staff to set desired room temperature, music, and lighting to increase their efficiency.

Optimize Displays

When your healthcare employees are strategizing over an issue together, give them a space to work out ideas where everyone can see them. A smart whiteboard can help everyone keep track of what gets written down, and large display screens can help employees share digital assets.
