AZ Sint-Jan Brugge-Oostende AV
AZ Sint-Jan Brugge-Oostende AV takes patient care to a new standard of comfort with PPDS.
Renowned for their quality assurance and patient satisfaction, AZ Sint-Jan Brugge-Oostende AV is one of Belgium’s largest hospitals and is rich in history. With over 500 rooms, patients have access to general doctors as well as world-class specialists and medical care.
A historic landmark, the very first hospital room of AZ SintJan Brugge-Oostende AV dates back to 1150. With constant extensions, renovations and changes in infrastructure, the hospital grew significantly in size over time. Today, a change in technological advancements meant that the entire hospital required a major upgrade in its cabling and connectivity to maintain its high standard in modern comfort and communications. Old analogue systems and CRT televisions needed a desperate upgrade to make way for digital interactivity and infinite possibilities.
AZ Sint-Jan Brugge-Oostende AV teamed up with Tele-Signal Electronics and PPDS to develop a future-proof infotainment system throughout three campuses of the hospital. This system brings endless possibilities to life through Tele-Signal Electronics’ OSCART IPTV technology, which has been implemented in patient waiting rooms and treatment rooms. By means of informative video clips aimed at their specific needs, patients will feel more at ease. Moreover, these clips can be displayed in other languages than Dutch. This way all patients will be able to enjoy the Oscart IPTV experience, no matter their nationality.
