Do you have a television in your waiting room? Of course you do. Turns out, instead of simply blaring the local news, daytime talk shows or our personal favorite, soap operas, you can actually use the television to help inform your patients about your practice.
Mediplay is an ad-free digital signage system built uniquely for medical practices. Engaging videos, motion graphics and text are displayed on a TV in the waiting room. Content can be managed on the Mediplay website and easily displayed on your televisions. Below are the benefits you may experience when choosing to utilize Mediplay in your waiting room.
Sitting in the waiting room is stressful; watching the local news coverage of natural disasters or the latest crime does not help. Instead, your patients can watch specifically selected content on all of the televisions.
You can use your Mediplay slides to inform your patients about a number of things.
This flu season, why not remind your patients about the importance of getting their yearly flu shot? This can be especially helpful if they are offered somewhere else in the building.
Does your practice offer services that patients may be unaware of? Oftentimes, patients will visit an ENT practice for one specific reason, totally unaware that there are other specialists available. Once they are informed, patients are more likely to schedule an additional visit as they can easily do so by talking to a front desk staff member.
Has a new doctor joined your team? You can make a few slides about them, including their specialty and background information, that patients may find helpful.
Are you adding a new service? This is the perfect opportunity to let your patients know! Maybe there is a patient in the waiting room who has been looking for an allergist but has not had the chance to search online yet. Now that they are aware they can see one in the same building as their ENT doctor they are more likely to schedule an appointment.
You can also use these slides to inform patients about general health information. During the Ebola scare in 2014, many practices used these slides to remind patients to let the office know if they had been out of the country recently.
As you can see, Mediplay slides can be molded to fit your practice. Why not make your waiting room work for you?
