Point of Care (POC) organizations deliver information anywhere and everywhere a consumer is receiving care via an interaction with a healthcare professional. In short, POC3 certification is proof that your organization is acting ethically and effectively when it comes to healthcare communications at the point of care.
Organizations that obtain POC3 certification are able to boost patient and physician education and engagement, while also improving healthcare outcomes.
It’s important to understand, however, that not all digital signage providers will allow you to become POC3 certified.
The current POC3 environment
Due to past scandals and for other obvious reasons, POC3’s regulatory body has imposed strict measures on healthcare marketing practices at the point of care. This is for two major reasons. First, is to ensure ethical and appropriate medical marketing, and second, to make sure that healthcare communications drive patient education and engagement above all else.
Why choosing the right digital signage provider is important if you want to become POC3 certified
The POC3 regulatory body is meant to maintain certain standardized levels across healthcare communications at the POC. Since so many healthcare organizations are adopting digital signage to communicate with patients and staff, it’s quite obvious that it needs to meet these standards for organizations that want to maintain or obtain POC3 certification.
TelemetryTV's digital signage software was sculpted from the ground up with POC3 compliance in mind, which is why it comes with numerous features that make POC3 certification much easier to achieve.
