Interactive Digital Directory Shows Patients the Way Keywest Technology’s I3 kiosk software provides visitors to the WESTMED Medical Group multi-specialty medical office with an interactive office directory to find their way.

LENEXA, Kan. (August 20, 2012) – Keywest Technology today announced that the newly opened WESTMED Medical Group office at Westchester’s Ridge Hill in Yonkers, NY, is helping visitors find their way to the correct office with an interactive digital signage directory based on the company’s I3 interactive kiosk software.

The 84,000-square-foot facility, which opened in July of 2011, offers a variety of medical services, including primary and specialty care, radiology, medical lab, and urgent care. In addition to the interactive kiosk software and supporting hardware from Keywest Technology, the touch-screen medical office directory relies on original digital signage content coordinated by ESSENTIALCOM and Keywest Technology’s creative services group.

“Keywest Technology’s turnkey digital signage solutions not only offer customers the reliable, full-featured solutions they require but also the essential ingredient to any successful digital signage application –professionally created digital signage content,” said Nick Nichols, Keywest Technology president. “The Ridge Hill application demonstrates how important effective content integrated into a professional digital signage system actually is.”

Located in the first floor lobby of the Ridge Hill office building, the Keywest Technology digital signage solution provides wayfinding functionality via a digital touchscreen office directory. Besides simply displaying a list of doctors and departments, the digital signage system also plays back advertisements.

Keywest Technology integrator ESSENTIALCOM LLC in White Plains, NY, worked with the developer of Westchester’s Ridge Hill, Forest City Ratner Companies (FCRC), who also manages the retail and office complex, to find a wayfinding solution that would make it easier for visitors to find their specific healthcare provider. ESSENTIALCOM recommended the turnkey Keywest Technology digital signage solution, worked with the client to ensure all Keywest Technology-developed interactive directory content was accurate, provided installation services and performed on-site testing and training.
