Top 5 KPJ Hospitals That Use Digital Displays In 2022
Digital display is an electronic device that is used to display content or messages via a digital screen. Depending on the display technology used, the screen can be an LCD (liquid crystal display), an LED (light-emitting diode) screen, a projector screen, or a television display. Unlike traditional displays that only use printed materials, digital screens can display a wide range of content formats including videos, animations, motion graphics, images, and texts.
As newer technologies are adopted widely, traditional displays such as banners, lightboxes, and signboards are replaced by more powerful electronic displays. Today, some of the most used digital displays are LED screens and digital signages. These displays offer outstanding visual quality with high screen readability and a wide colour range. Humans are visual creatures, and we tend to pay more attention to visual information. This is the reason why digital displays are more effective in engaging the audience.
More and more businesses are turning to using digital displays in engaging their audience. Hospitals and healthcare providers in Malaysia are no exceptions.
In this article, we look at the five KPJ hospitals that use digital displays in their daily operations.
About KPJ Healthcare
Before we dive deeper, allow us to explain what kind of company KPJ Healthcare is.
KPJ Healthcare Berhad is one of Malaysia’s leading private providers of healthcare services. KPJ Group has hospitals located in every state in Malaysia except Terengganu. While the local market is the group’s main focus, it is also looking to expand abroad. Today, it has a hospital in Bangladesh, a hospital in Thailand, and two hospitals in Indonesia.
With more than 40 years of experience in the private healthcare industry, KPJ is a well-known name that has earned a reputation for excellence in its various healthcare services. In addition to owning a large number of hospitals nationwide, the group also provides services such as senior living care, laboratory services, dental specialist, rehabilitation, and bariatric surgery.
Since the group is committed to delivering the best possible services to both patients and their families, the group has been putting effort into improving every aspect of its operation. One of the improvements made is the implementation of digital displays. Digital displays are very effective in reaching both hospitals’ visitors and staff. The screens can be used to deliver important information, directories, and announcements.
1. KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital
At the 5th level of KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital, a large LED screen is found in the conference hall. Sitting at the back of the stage, the LED screen is used as an electronic backdrop. Depending on the occasion or event, the content displayed on the screen can be changed accordingly.
The LED screen has a pixel pitch of 2mm. It is one of the most used pixel pitches for indoor applications. Whether it is a staff briefing, a special celebration, or a conference, the LED screen is a very helpful tool in engaging the audience.
2. KPJ Klang Specialist Hospital
In the biggest port city in Malaysia, KPJ Klang Specialist Hospital chooses to replace its old projector screen with a P2 Indoor LED screen in its conference room. The LED display serves the same purpose as the one at KPJ Ipoh. However, the viewing experience is improved greatly when the hospital also chooses to install a total of six TV displays with a professional sound system in the same room. The collaboration between the LED screen and the TVs helps to provide a wider viewing experience.
3. KPJ Tawakkal KL Specialist Hospital
While both KPJ Ipoh and KPJ Klang use digital displays in their conference rooms where the public has limited access, KPJ Tawakkal KL Specialist Hospital installs a total of three LG digital signages at the reception area. The three digital signages have a screen size of 55 inches and they are used to relay messages to the visitors.
Digital signage is a powerful display that looks like an ordinary home TV. It is more robust and has longer operating hours. Managing signage content is very convenient too. By using a content management system, users can manage, upload and publish content anytime and anywhere.
4. KPJ Bandar Dato’Onn Specialist Hospital
Both digital signages and LED displays have wide applications. They can be used in various places or applications. KPJ Bandar Dato’Onn Specialist Hospital has demonstrated a great example of how digital displays can be used in various scenarios.
First, the hospital welcomes its visitors with a large P3 LED screen in its lobby. The screen has high-definition resolution with vivid and bright colours. It is used to display corporate videos and advertisements.
Second, the hospital also takes an innovative approach to install a wall-mount signage in one of its elevators. While boarding the elevator, visitors can access information or announcement made by the hospital. It helps to reach the audience easily.
Third, the hospital also installs a P2 LED screen in its meeting room. Using an LED display in a meeting room can be a great idea for engaging meeting participants. The display has a higher resolution and higher screen brightness than a whiteboard or a projector screen.
5. KPJ Seremban Specialist Hospital
KPJ Seremban Specialist Hospital chooses to install an LED safety sign – a digital display that is different from all our examples mentioned above. The safety sign is made by using multiple P4 LED screen modules. The sign is used to display information such as date, incident reported, days of operation without occupational incidents and many more.
The use of LED safety sign has helped the hospital in easing their task. Previously, a whiteboard was used, and it could look messy sometimes.
Many believe that digital displays are mainly used for commercial applications. It is not true as digital displays can be widely found in various places such as education centres, museums, hospitals, transportation hubs, retail stores, and roadsides. While a hospital is a place where patients receive treatments, it is also important for the hospital to reach visitors with updates, information, and messages. Without a doubt, both LED screens and digital signages are some of the most effective digital displays that are used by hospitals in relaying messages.
