Touchscreen Kiosks Help Visitors Find Their Way
Phelps is continually searching for new ways to enhance the hospital experience for patients and visitors. Last year, the hospital created campus maps to help visitors understand the layout of the campus so they can find their way from one building to another. In late spring, Phelps installed three touchscreen informational kiosks at the entrances to the main hospital’s 701 building, the 755 building and the ground floor of the 777 building. The kiosks, which are approximately 6 feet tall, provide visitors with maps of the campus, a calendar of events, directories of staff and medical staff, and basic information about hospital services and amenities. Users can also visualize where they are in relation to their destination. Of course, the kiosks will never take the place of the wonderful volunteers who staff the information desks!
