In the Netherlands, digital signage in physiotherapy waiting rooms is widespread to ease waiting room stress.
The popularity of digital signage for physiotherapists is largely due to the ease of use and it’s scalability. Whether you are an independent physiotherapist or a group practice with multiple locations at different locations, digital signage works.
Your customers won’t even notice they’re waiting
As a physiotherapist, a lot of time is invested in providing good treatment. Digital signage helps you improve patient satisfaction even more. After all, the start of your therapeutic treatment begins in the waiting room of your practice. With digital signage you ensure a relaxed atmosphere. By keeping patients informed of the waiting time, and providing practical news and medical facts, you are demonstrating that you care, which patients greatly appreciate. The result: more satisfied patients.
Digital signage improves your waiting room
Digital signage is ideal for easing waiting times. With digital signage in your waiting room you don’t make the average waiting time shorter, but it is a lot more pleasant. With digital signage in your waiting room, it’s more than worth it to wait for a treatment.
Physiotherapist? Eight reasons for digital signage in your waiting room.
Well-informed patients are more understanding of extended waiting time. Use digital signage to inform patients about average waiting times and easily display the current waiting time on your screens. It creates clarity and prevents annoying misunderstandings.
Video: from information to entertainment.
Video content is another proven and effective way to ease the impact of waiting time in your practice. Clips of medical news such as healthcare innovations are extremely popular and thanks to simple widgets you can automatically display the latest news on the digital signage screens in your practice. There are many options to choose from, with informative and educational videos available from suppliers such as Homecare and NHG videos, NU.nl medical news and BBC Health.
World news in your pharmacy.
Display the news in the form of international news or local news flashes. Once the news widget is installed, the news is automatically updated. You maintain control and can decide which news your customers see via the settings on your digital signage menu.
Practical information in the waiting room.
Forget the leaflet or the torn poster hanging sadly on the wall. Keep your customers informed of current promotions and events via digital signage. Build a strong image to develop your base of satisfied customers. You can introduce your team or communicate opening hours. Provide answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) and reduce the workload for your staff. With digital signage your practice is front and centre.
Digital signage for the waiting room and treatment room
Digital signage can be used both in the waiting room and in the treatment room. Different screens can be operated and controlled from a central dashboard.
Signposting in practice.
Do you have a group practice? Or do you have multiple treatment rooms? Position screens to use digital signage for signposting. Provide clear directions for your customers and visitors via a central screen with a map.
Multiple waiting rooms
Digital signage is a scalable medium. A medium that allows multiple screens as well as the option for different locations to display unique information. Regardless of where they are located, you can see what’s displayed on all the different screens via a central control screen. So you know, in real time, that the correct content is being shown with the appropriate corporate identity at all your locations. Individual locations can easily add content themselves but you remain in control.
Digital signage: a valuable medium
The screens in your pharmacy also have great value potential for advertisers. Advertisers large and small, national or local would like to connect with their target group through your screens in your pharmacy. Your own campaign or promotion is also best suited to the place it belongs: on screen – right in front of your own audience in the waiting room of your own pharmacy. No flyer or leaflet can compete with this.
