New Office Space? How To Plan Your Audio-Visual System

When you’re building out a new healthcare office space, you need to pay attention to things like design, accessibility, and comfort. But one of your biggest areas of concentration should be planning out the right audio-visual system for your space—now and in the future.

Consider this: it’s easy to add wiring, outlets, and other hidden components now then it will be to have to make holes in walls and reconfigure spaces to accommodate your growing needs.

What do you need to think about when planning your healthcare facility’s audio-visual setup at a new space?

Plan Out Collaboration

How will your employees collaborate during the workday? Do you want to provide them with smaller huddle spaces, or will team efforts be done in a conference room? When you know how your healthcare employees will need to work together for successful projects, you can plan out AV solutions to support them.

Think About Future Display Setups

You may not have the money or need for a large-screen video display right now, but you know exactly where it will go in the future. Have your audio-video installation team create recessed areas where the screen can hang, and wires or other AV needs can be stored behind it. Until you’re ready for that screen, hang a picture over the area to make it look pleasant in the meantime.

Get Rid Of The Biggest Culprits

It’s crucial that your audio components work during calls and video conferences, but are they optimized to do so in the room they are in? Poor sound quality is an ongoing problem for many healthcare facilities, so what do you need to do to make sure it’s not at yours? Think about how many people regularly participate in your calls, and whether microphones on your conference table may be better than trying to cram six people around a speakerphone.

When designing your AV ahead of time you can also coordinate your other construction needs. Installing sound-reducing panels in conference rooms or better lighting for areas of video conferencing will help make sure that every call runs smoothly and supports your success.

How To Improve The Audio In Your Conference Room For Remote Meetings

Whether you want to hold successful remote meetings or try creating videos as part of your marketing strategy, there’s one thing that can keep you back: poor audio quality.

You want people on the other end of your call to be able to pay attention to your ideas, not spend the call trying to figure out what it is you’re saying. And when you put some time into updating your healthcare facility’s audio resources, you’ll save more time in the future from frustration.

Prepare your conference room to be as acoustically-friendly as possible and stop wasting time on your calls with these simple changes.

Make Sure You’re Heard

If you’re sitting in a large conference room and trying to have a call on your laptop, the microphone might not be strong enough to pick up your voice clearly. Instead, you can have a microphone installed that will be strong enough to handle the room’s size.

Stop Competing For Noise

When ambient sounds are surrounding you, your audio quality won’t be clear on the other end. First, survey for things like fans, window cracks, and any other sounds, big or small, that can be amplified by a microphone. Make sure telephones are on silent and devices like printers are turned off to avoid any surprises.

Put Your Walls To Work

If you’re finding that ambient noise from outside of your conference room is negatively affecting your audio, you can have sound-dampening panels installed on your walls. Plus, for healthcare facilities, you’re adding an extra level of privacy for anything said in that room.

Check Before You Start

The best way to ensure you have no surprises with audio in the middle of your call is by making sure that sound, input, and volume levels are all ready beforehand.

How A Video Distribution System Will Make Your Healthcare Facility More Productive

Are you taking advantage of all the available audio-visual solutions that can help your healthcare facility be more productive?

If you aren’t using video distribution, then the answer to that is probably not.

With a linked video distribution system, employees and patients can have access to any of their information no matter which room they are in or who they are speaking to. And by implementing these ideas into your building, you’ll find everyone is more productive and more satisfied with their services.

Keep Track Of Shared Goals

With shared video distribution, you can ensure that all linked screens display the content you want. This can be a significant boost to productivity as it allows all employees to visualize the progress made towards these goals. If you want to conduct a certain number of patient intakes, when everyone sees the progress being made, they’ll stay motivated to keep going.

Hold Better Meetings

Tired of lagging video displays when you try to hold a meeting with remote clients or partners? A video distribution system will help make sure that you’re always ready for any meeting, and so is your digital technology.

Celebrate Your Staff

One of the most tried-and-true ways to increase employee productivity is by keeping them happy. Using video distribution can be a simple way to get a celebratory or congratulatory message out to the office; list someone’s birthday or special achievement to stimulate conversations between employees and a more positive atmosphere for visitors.

Incorporate Touch Screens

When patients can check in with a video screen, you’re moving them along quicker, and they feel as though they’re getting an immediate response.

7 Ways Security Cameras At Your Healthcare Space Will Make Your Life Easier

No matter what your healthcare specialization is, protecting the people and property in your building should be your top priority. Patients and patient information must be impenetrable to breaches of privacy.

In a world where surprises are becoming the norm, it’s time to protect your healthcare facility with the benefits of modern security camera technology. These are seven ways that installing security cameras will help make your healthcare office run smoother.

  1. Live Monitoring Shows You Who Is Onsite

Whether you have a dedicated security office or employees monitor any live camera streams from their own devices, when you’re seeing what is happening in your facility in real time, you can take action to keep everyone safe.

  1. Remote Monitoring Lets You Stay Connected At Any Time

No longer do you have to be onsite to a monitor a camera's feed; nowadays you can remotely view what your security camera sees, ensuring your office is safe, even on nights and weekends.

  1. The Presence Of Cameras Can Be Preventative

Just the sight of a camera installed can help deter criminals from acting. But should they go forward with their plan, your cameras will be there to catch them in the act.

  1. Resolve False Claims Quickly

It’s an unfortunate reality, but there may be individuals who try to make a false claim about being injured on your property. The best way to get rid of these frivolous suits is with recordings that show how the event actually transpired.

  1. Help Reduce Employee Arguments

When two employees have arguments or issues, this discontent can bleed out into your entire office, making the workplace less productive for everyone. You don’t need to serve as a judge or jury when misunderstandings can be resolved by viewing a camera’s recording.

  1. Keep Everyone Productive

You probably don’t want to run a healthcare facility based on fear and punishment, but the truth is that when you have security cameras in your office, employees tend to put in the extra effort.

  1. Keep An Eye On Vulnerable Areas

Whether there’s a back entrance to your facility off of a dark alley or you have fire escapes outside some of your lesser-used windows, security cameras will help you watch these areas for signs of danger or damage.
