Systems of this nature will be able to improve patient flow no end, and that’s a key part of being able to provide a high level of care. On-site paging can be used to alert patients when they’re ready to be seen, and because these devices will have a large radius there’s no need for people to hang around in waiting rooms for longer than necessary—patients will reduce stress levels and free to take a stroll to the café or other areas of the hospital, freeing up waiting areas whilst reducing frustration at being confined to one area.
