Audio visual technology has revolutionized the way communication is managed and content is displayed in hospitals. Hospitals rely on technology to help make diagnoses, provide care, train and support staff, and keep patients and their families engaged. LightWerks offers an extensive range of quality, user-friendly, and reliable solutions that help our healthcare clients improve performance and streamline care delivery. We are the premier integrator for reliable, efficient, state-of-the-art AV solutions in healthcare spaces. We deliver innovative and collaborative audio-visual planning, design, installation, training, and support services specifically designed for the healthcare industry that improve the patient, staff, and visitor experience. Our solutions delight patients, empower healthcare providers, and modernize facilities. Through our partnerships with key industry leaders, we are able to deliver dynamic, reliable video conferencing, telemedicine, and collaboration capabilities, digital signage and wayfinding, advanced audio, recording and streaming capabilities, and personal communication equipment to a variety of healthcare facilities. We can categorize the spaces in the healthcare arena by a variety of room types. Below you’ll find a description of the most common room types, what they include, what they cost, and what is needed by LightWerks to professionally install appropriate collaboration technology at your location(s).
Skills labs serve as a multi-functional training space. They often include flexible tables and AV systems designed for surgical skill practice, group training, and continuing medical education. Skills training might include surgical, anesthesia, emergency medicine/ trauma (adult and pediatric), microsurgery, critical care, laparoscopic, and pediatrics. Skills labs often include multiple flat panels to display procedures which can be viewed through document cameras or ceiling visualizers. In addition, ceiling microphones and speakers increase intelligibility in these spaces. The integration of sophisticated audio and video-conferencing capability makes it possible for procedures and demonstrations to be shared between multiple locations. Additionally, recording capabilities for later play-back give students the opportunity to reengage with and study demonstrated medical procedures. Custom-programmed control systems allows for better control of the equipment. Lighting, shades, and air conditioning control are often incorporated into the user’s touch control interface.
A major component of any medical simulation center is the ability to monitor, record, and remotely control the simulation scenario from a control room. Typically there is one control room for every one or two simulation rooms that is located adjacent to the simulation space. They are often behind one-way observation mirrors for the instructors to observe. Instructors can also operate simulators and the video equipment from the control room to modify the simulation in progress and provide a voice for the patient through the manikin. The most important function of the control room is the ability to record both the audio and video from the simulated scenario at the same time. Discreet camera and microphone systems integrated in the simulation architecture allows for multi-channel recordings of all interactions between learners and live standardized patients or automated patient simulators. Once the scenario is complete, the instructor can replay the scenario during debrief to create a
valuable learning opportunity for the participants as they see themselves perform.
Hospitals continue to confront a wide variety of operational and fiscal challenges on a daily basis. To manage emergencies, hospitals invest time and valuable resources to ensure adequate emergency plans are in place and personnel are sufficiently trained to respond. Incident Command Centers provide medical personnel with technology used for problem solving, troubleshooting, and developing solutions for health system related incidents. The technology often allows for the simultaneous presentation of various content, giving end-users the ability interact and collaborate dynamically. In order to support their use, Incident Command Centers will often involve the integration of multiple displays. Properly-tuned audio systems, as well as wireless microphones are usually integrated into these spaces. Incident Command Centers also include sophisticated audio and video-conferencing capability for meetings which may be shared between multiple locations, recording capability for later play-back, and control systems for better control of equipment. Lighting, shades, and air conditioning control are often incorporated into the user’s touch control interface.
