First phase of upgrade for patient TVs begins at SRC
A new patient television system being implemented at YNHH will enhance patient
engagement and improve patient satisfaction by providing a variety of custom programming.
The first phase of the system focuses on upgrading existing TVs and the TV network. Once
the process is complete, patients and families will have new pillow speakers and access to
72 high-definition channels, including an interactive program guide, movies on demand
and relaxation programming. Activation of the new system began on the Saint Raphael
Campus July 18 and will continue throughout August. Work will begin on the York Street
Campus later this year. Patient Experience and Information Technology Services are jointly
overseeing the project.
