Meritus Medical Center Upgrades In-Room Patient Channel with Noventri

  • Noventri recently announced that Meritus Medical Center, a 257-bed community hospital located in Hagerstown, Maryland, has chosen Noventri to upgrade their In-Room Patient Television Channel.
  • Meritus Medical Center set up a new patient television system to launch with the opening of the newly-relocated hospital in December 2010. The patient information channel was established to improve patient communication and satisfaction. After experience with the PC-based patient television system they had purchased, the hospital continued to search for a solution that was easier to manage and offered higher reliability.
  • "Along with the move to the new hospital came more responsibilities," said Jim Slemp - Information Systems. "We naturally needed to find systems that would require less time and complexity to operate. And in the end, we received a better product."
  • In each of the patient rooms, Noventri displays information for the patient to see. If a message needs to be communicated to the patients, it is extremely easy to do so with the Noventri Eco-Series digital signage solution.
  • "Noventri Suite software and the Eco-Series SF-200 players are easy to use and enable us to get the message across," said Kyle Haught, multi-media specialist for the hospital. "We chose Noventri because of their quality and ability to adapt to our systems. Their tech support is very responsive and helpful."
  • Meritus Health is a regional health system serving the tri-state area including Washington County, MD, Franklin and Fulton Counties in Pennsylvania and the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.
