AGH Installs New Multi-Media Units In All Rooms

BERLIN – As part of a hospital-wide update of all inpatient rooms, Atlantic General Hospital installed last fall new multimedia units that allow patients to watch television, make phone calls and surf the web all on one machine.

The units were made available to patients this month after thorough testing. The new technology, called care.connection, offers more than just entertainment value – giving patients an easy way to access health education and important messages from the hospital with a few taps of their index finger.

The system allows hospital staff the flexibility to update textual and video content quickly to provide access to patient education helpful in reinforcing key information, such as post-operative instructions.
