What Is An Interactive Whiteboard And How Will It Help Your Healthcare Office?

A clear example of how modern technology has taken a concept and upgraded it to something more useful than ever imagined is the interactive whiteboard. 

There’s a reason chalk, and then dry-erase markers were useful everywhere from the classroom to the boardroom: they allowed for immediate, and visual, recording of shared ideas. 

An interactive whiteboard takes that capability into the digital age. With the ability to share written information, save it, and a whole host of other activities, the digital interactive whiteboard is now an essential element of a commercial office’s huddle rooms, conference rooms, and communal areas.

No More Fumbling With PowerPoints

An interactive whiteboard turns meetings into interactive events, where information can be accessed or shared at any given moment to bolster a point. 

Share With The Whole Team

You don’t need to send out PDFs of your PowerPoint presentation when offsite attendees can tune into the session itself. And you can easily send everything that was discussed to anyone you want.

Make It Easy On Clients

Trying to explain a concept to a customer in a short period of time can be hard on you both. An interactive whiteboard can help you show them what you’re talking about and how it relates to the situation at hand.

Touch Without Smear

An interactive whiteboard is also touch-operated so forget the smear of dry-erase markers. You can annotate the screen as much as you want, and your primary controls will remain at your fingertips. An onscreen touch-operated keyboard will help you say anything you want without the worry of bad handwriting, and “pens” will help you write in digital ink.

How Will Digital Signage Improve Your Healthcare Office?

There’s no one answer to improving the productivity and accessibility of your Healthcare office, given no two employees or patients are the same. 

But by using digital signage in the office, you’re taking a big step forward to making efficiency and comfort a core value of the workplace.

At its simplest, digital signage allows you to take content and send it out to your displays. You’re able to manage what content gets seen, and even control variables like when it gets seen.

Allowing for this level of instant customization means presenting information to anyone who enters your office in a way that makes sense to them. And when people feel like they’re being understood, they’re far more likely to enjoy the experience they have at your office.

So what can digital signage do for your healthcare office?

Put Visitors At Ease

When seated in your waiting room, patients probably don’t want to read a month-old People magazine, but they do want to see the information that is relevant to them. From streaming top news headlines to giving them factual data on your office and its success, digital signage allows you to help reduce the stress of waiting to be seen.

Reduce Burdens On Employees

Your employees should be able to focus on clients, not worry about giving directions or explaining basic facts. When you have digital signage installed, visitors can learn this information on their own, which frees up your staff to provide meaningful connections.

Cut Down Wait Times

Digital signage can also be hugely helpful in reducing wait times on the back end of your business. As soon as someone checks in, their name can be displayed to employees who can act faster on gathering necessary materials or data. A more personal experience can be delivered as there is no need for in-betweens to relay information via phone or in person.

Everything You Need To Know About Installing Outdoor Security Cameras In A Healthcare Office

You can’t watch all parts of your commercial office all of the time, but you also don’t want to leave your company vulnerable. An alarm system will help, but adding security cameras around your property will make sure you always know what is going on, whether you’re onsite or not.

You don’t need to think about your security cameras as a constant surveillance technique, but rather, as a way to prevent — and even investigate — any crime or theft. That means placing them in areas that are most likely to capture any potential threats:

  • Front entrance and exit
  • Any additional entrances or exits
  • Reception areas and waiting rooms
  • Around windows
  • Side alleys, parking lots, or other secluded areas on the property

In all of these cases, you don’t need to worry about hiding a camera — sometimes just the presence of one can be enough to deter a thief. Not to mention, you can point indoor cameras away from seating areas, so customers feel comfortable, and you should be careful about adhering to legal regulations.

The type of security camera you install will also determine where and how you need to place them. At front entrances, a camera with a wider field of view allows you to see anyone approaching clearly, while a camera in your parking lot will clearly capture identifying details of cars that come and go.

Lighting can negatively affect the quality of the images your camera captures. If it is pointed into a light source, you won’t get clear pictures of faces approaching the camera. An experienced audio-visual installation team will ensure that cameras are optimally placed to function with the surrounding light.

3 Audio-Visual Trends For Healthcare Office Boardrooms

Boardrooms of yore were often styled with leather seating and more of a clubroom atmosphere; the priorities for boardrooms today are quite different.

The modern commercial office doesn’t exist in a bubble; chances are you are connected to vendors, suppliers, and contractors around the globe. In this world, comfort may still be a priority, but it is connectivity that is the focus.

Your boardroom’s audio-video system needs to be easy to connect to, and ready to go for every meeting. It needs to include high-quality video and audio components, so people on both ends of a call can be heard. And your boardroom should also make it easy for anyone to plug their devices into, whether to charge a phone or plug in a laptop. 

When upgrading your healthcare office’s boardroom, consider these three trends to make sure your A/V system impresses all who attend.

  1. Video Walls

With LED video displays, you can create a full wall of screens that display the same or different sources in addition to your smaller, day-to-day screen. Hold a meeting with people all over the globe, and see each one of them clearly on the screen.

  1. Hidden Microphones

Sound quality can make-or-break a meeting, and is one of the most significant issues employees have with conference rooms. Your audio-video installation team will be able to place microphones strategically so that the audio coming from the room is always crystal clear no matter the room's size or shape.

  1. Wired Options

Wireless has made it easy for people to connect to the internet quickly, but it’s not always reliable, and you want to have a plan. Installing cords in hidden panels will allow anyone to plug in if they want to, and will give you a backup in case of any issues.

Video Distribution in the Boardroom: 3 Essential Tools

There are several kinds of communal meeting spaces in most commercial offices:

  • Huddle spaces provide intimate areas for employee collaboration.
  • Conference rooms offer a larger space for more people and more extensive meetings.
  • Board rooms are where the highest-priority meetings happen, which often require a setting conducive to presentations.

If your board room isn’t outfitted with the right audio-visual technology, both presenters and listeners will have a hard time communicating effectively.

The good news is, an expert audio-visual installation team will be able to help you upgrade your healthcare office’s board room so that you have the right tools on hand, every day. These are three things your board room needs in order to have an effective and efficient video distribution system.

  1. Immediate, Centralized Control

Depending on the size of your office, you may or may not have A/V staff on hand that are experts in your boardroom’s setup, and the members of any given meeting probably aren’t either. You want your room to be ready to go with the touch of a button, which is what you can get with a central video distribution system.

  1. Appropriate Connections

Whether the person presenting needs to connect their laptop or a camera, there should be multiple jacks available where your presenter sets up. There should also be a power cord, so no devices die during the middle of a meeting.

  1. Multiple Quality Displays

Ensure that everyone in the room can see what is being presented with multiple displays, and for larger spaces, pair screens with a central high definition projector.
