APPS CATALOGUE

SPARK® has introduced a new suite of applications suitable for patients, staff and visitors to enrich their hospital experience. These apps are available via a number of devices, including patients own devices (BYOD - Bring your own device), Trust-owned devices like tablets, bedside units and other mounted screens.

THE PLAY/APPS STORE OF HEALTHCARE TECH
 
A buildable platform, SPARK® is the conduit to present thousands of applications to patients, visitors and staff within healthcare environments. Our well-respected SPARK® Media solution is already widely used within hospitals as a 'BYOD' solution (Bring Your Own Device). This product was originally built to rival Hospedia's bedside unit functionality, however, since the company's acquisition, SPARK® is now being built into new state-of-the-art bedside units - SPARK® Horizon's.
 
The platform has also been made available to other devices such as Trust-owned Tablets. This means that SPARK®'s unrivalled and healthcare assistive technology is now accessible on a plethora of devices, making it digitally inclusive to all.

HOW IT WORKS
Healthcare organisations will select from this catalogue which apps they would like to feature on their SPARK® Platform. There is a vast array of apps available, such as widely known familiar apps you can find on the Play Store, our own SPARK® Apps such as the TV, Radio & Magazines, as well as specific healthcare apps that you can choose to benefit your staff and patients.
 
Users will log into SPARK® from any device and will then be provided with four engagement pages which will contain our range of apps. These pages cover: Trust services, patient care, charities, and our vast entertainment selection. Each engagement page has a selection of apps relevant to its page type. The only page that is slightly different is the entertainment page, which not only has apps but a range of Freeview TV and Radio entertainment channels.
