LodgeNet Healthcare has built a reputation for designing and delivering reliable patient television solutions to the healthcare industry.

LodgeNet Healthcare offers professional services, digital migration planning and interactive solutions for hospitals that need to upgrade their patient television network.

Hospitals are confronted with having to upgrade their antiquated televisions and video network to meet the needs of improved technology and patient expectations. The televisions of today are much more sophisticated and offer more features than the bulky traditional tube sets found in most hospitals. Working closely with LG Electronics, LodgeNet has developed an interactive solution that enhances those features. "The integrated solution offered by our two companies makes a practical solution for hospitals that are looking to make this investment," explained Ron Snaidauf, Vice President, Commercial Products, LG Electronics USA.

This fully integrated offering (exclusively from LG and LodgeNet) makes it the only solution available without the need for a PC or set-top box in every room, and it can be delivered on a facility's current coaxial network or over IP, whichever is more cost effective for the hospital. This patented architecture can mean significant savings for hospitals now able to avoid expensive re-cabling and the purchase and support of additional in-room equipment, which can be costly to support. "By making a smart architecture purchase up front with LG televisions and LodgeNet's services, hospitals will be able to take advantage of the new and exciting technology when they're ready for it," said Snaidauf.

LodgeNet Healthcare's professional services and digital migration planning provide facilities with a comprehensive outlook on how to deploy a patient television solution that is right for them. "No two hospitals are the same, and we provide a service that can help people responsible for these projects understand the financial and operational impacts," Kolbeck said. "From hanging the TVs, to pulling cable, to providing Pro:Idiom(R) encrypted HD content, LodgeNet and LG can handle it all." Because of LodgeNet's unique background in hospitality, the company is also able to support other patient connectivity devices from iPod's to portable movie players.

LodgeNet Healthcare (Booth 7951) and LG Electronics (Booth 8315) will both be exhibiting at the HIMMS Annual Conference and Convention at the McCormick Place complex in Chicago, April 4-8.
