We are delighted with the SPARK® Media Platform and the difference it has made to both patients and NHS staff alike. SPARK® Media supports multiple languages and customisable text options creating a service which is accessible to patients of all ages and nationalities.
In the future, we plan to make use of the integrated solution to make meal ordering and housekeeping requests easier. Through SPARK® Media, patients will be able to send a direct message to the department they require a service from by themselves, minimising delays and potential miscommunications. At the same time, this will make precious time efficiencies for doctors and nurses.
