The current climate has forced us all to change the way we work and communicate both internally and externally. It’s more important now than ever that we have clear and effective ways of communicating with our colleagues while most of us work from home. For some sectors like healthcare, however, working from home is not an option. It is therefore vital that healthcare staff have access to the necessary audio visual technology in order communicate effectively and carry out their jobs safely.

Last weekend Marymount University Hospice in Cork needed a more efficient way for their medical team to communicate with staff members during their weekly meetings. On account of the current regulations for safe social distancing it meant that the weekly staff meetings could not be conducted in a group setting as normal.



We were delighted to be able to provide Marymount Hospice with a state of the art video conferencing system with Zoom room conferencing so that staff members could be spread out around the building while still taking part in the meetings. Going forward this will allow the chief medical team to communicate with all staff members at the same time while maintaining a safe social distance.

The video conferencing unit is fully mobile and therefore allows staff to move the trolley anywhere within the building. The high quality Logitech camera provides a clear, wide angle view of the room so that team members who need to be in the same room can maintain a safe distance between each other. The unit comes with Zoom Rooms built in which is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy to use cloud platform for video and audio conferencing.

High tech video conferencing systems like these are vital in order to support the daily tasks of the medial team and protect each staff member’s safety at all times.



In an environment like healthcare it is vital that communication can be delivered clearly and urgently when needed. This video conferencing system will allow this to happen from any area of the hospice and hopefully help to alleviate some of the pressures that staff are currently under during this time.

We look forward to continuing to support our friends at Marymount Hospice who do an incredible job all year round but in particular have shown true courage and dedication in the current crisis.
