HD Advancements Make Healthcare Facilities Feel Like Home

What better time to catch up on season three of Homeland than during an extended hospital stay?  With CTAM’s recent HIMSS Analytics study identifying the healthcare industry as a key vertical, it makes perfect sense to create a viewing experience in physicians’ offices, long-term care facilities, and health clinics that replicates the comforts of home as closely as possible.

Time Warner Cable has taken the innovation lead through a mountable “set back” box outfitted with a CableCard that supports all pay-TV services—providing a new HD video service customized for healthcare facilities. Highlights of the service include:

Over 100 HD channels, including premium and music channels A large VOD library In-house branded content options DVR-like capabilities (live TV pause, fast-forward, rewind) Interfacing with most bedside pillow speakers Antimicrobial remote control

“Our HD Video for Healthcare solution gives patients the television experience they want, which will ultimately assist administrators in improving satisfaction and drive higher Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores,” said Greg King, SVP and chief product and strategy officer for Time Warner Cable Business Services.

This particular product advancement provides another strategic arrow in the cable industry quiver with which to serve the healthcare industry. The synergies that exist between emerging cable technologies and healthcare-facility needs have taken the conversation to an entirely new level, with cable’s arsenal positioned strongly for future growth.
