Healthcare Clinic Patient Privacy and Sound Masking System
Privacy should be part of the entire patient experience, but in most waiting rooms, reception areas, patient rooms, exam rooms and Doctor's offices, speech privacy is virtually non-existent. Patients often overhear confidential conversations between office personnel and other patients. In addition to being a HIPAA violation, this fosters a negative patient experience where patients feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, and potentially less likely to have open conversations with caregivers and staff. This sound masking system is an innovative solution to help achieve speech privacy in doctors, clinic and urgent care exam rooms as well as provide office noise cancellation, by making human speech less intelligible.
An All-in-One Solution for Speech Privacy
This Qt Patient Privacy System consists of a control module, two lighted privacy signs, and 8 direct-field sound masking emitters. The intuitive control module can be installed in a reception desk, in the nurses' station, or mounted to a wall. Once turned on, the emitters installed in the ceiling add a low level of background sound into the space that will make human speech less intelligible. Lighted privacy signs turn on to indicate the system is running, and let patients know that their conversations are being protected.
Easy to Retrofit into Existing Spaces
The Qt Patient Privacy System can be installed quickly and inexpensively in any medical office through Cambridge Sound Management's nationwide network of certified sound masking professionals. Privacy signs can be surface mounted, glass mounted, or mounted into a gang box, easily blending in with modern medical office décor.
The control module can be surface mounted directly to the wall, flush mounted with the supplied box, or flush mounted to a suitable 4-gang electrical box (or 3-gang using EU/UK hardware). The privacy signs can be mounted on glass using the hider plate, surface mounted with self-adhesive tape, or mounted using a 1-gang box (North America NEMA or EU/UK types).
* The entire system is GreenSpec listed, consuming less than 7 watts of power. The system can help enable LEED v4 certification in the categories of acoustics and daylight harvesting.
