Sony IPTV and D-Signage Solution at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse

Sony Australia, in partnership with Oneview Healthcare, announced that it has completed Stage One of the comprehensive patient infotainment and integrated software solution at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse. The project, which included installing a patient entertainment system, televisions, tablets, a digital signage solution throughout the facility and “way finding” kiosks, was completed in partnership with Oneview Healthcare and systems integrators Axon.

Garry Rhodin, Sony Australia’s General Manager Professional Solutions Division, said, “Stage One of the Lifehouse project involved Sony and Oneview Healthcare providing IPTV and patient services to televisions and tablets. We also installed a comprehensive digital signage solution which feeds the Sony monitors across the Lifehouse facility. The final part of Stage One was providing and installing way finding kiosks that provide patients and visitors with directions via 3D maps of the Lifehouse facility.”

Sony’s partnership with Oneview Healthcare and their close collaboration with Axon meant that Stage One of the Lifehouse project went smoothly and ran on time with the patient entertainment system now live and in full use at the patients’ point of care.

Anne Marie Hadley, Chief Information Officer at Lifehouse, commented, “We are delighted with the Sony-Oneview system. They have deployed a flexible solution that now allows patients to stay connected with the outside whilst undergoing treatment.”

Sony are pursuing new opportunities in the healthcare industry globally and their collaboration with companies such as Oneview Healthcare in Australia and New Zealand means the company can offer solutions to the market quickly and efficiently.

James Fitter, CEO of Oneview Healthcare, stated, “Lifehouse is a truly ground-breaking project which pushes the boundaries of point-of-care technology. As a company dedicated to the advancement of patient engagement services, Oneview Healthcare is delighted to have played a part in making this ambitious project a resounding success.
