OSMH seeking feedback on Inpatient Entertainment Systems

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

(Tuesday, July 12, 2016 - Orillia, ON) –  Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) wants to hear about what is most important to patients and families when accessing inpatient bedside entertainment systems at their local hospital through an online survey on the hospital website.

With advancements in technology, there are more services available today through bedside inpatient entertainment systems, such as television services, internet access, gaming, patient menu and meal ordering, health education, hospital updates and more.

In partnership with Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC), OSMH is undertaking a joint process to seek public input on the services that are most important to patients and families. Currently, both organizations offer wireless Internet and TV rental services providing basic cable through separate third-party service providers. By working together, MAHC and OSMH can share the cost associated with seeking a single provider.

“This is a perfect example of how the patient voice can influence the direction that a hospital takes,” says Pat Campbell, OSMH President and CEO.  “It’s the people who use the system that know what is valued in a patient entertainment system, especially in today’s world of rapidly expanding technology.” 

The survey will remain open until Friday, July 22, 2016. Results of the survey will be used to help determine the type of system that will be installed in patient rooms at both organizations and offered to patients and families through a fee for service.
