New Envisage Updates – March 2023

It’s been a busy few months here with lots of new content and features added to the Envisage Waiting Room TV and Patient Call system.

We’ve added some great new educational content on COPD, along with videos supporting the most recent NHS campaigns, including Bowel Cancer Screening and the Act F.A.S.T stroke campaign. Finally, you can now easily display the weather for your area on your waiting room TV screens!

New COPD Media

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the second most common lung disease in the UK after asthma. It mainly affects middle-aged or older adults who smoke, and many people do not realise they have it.

We’ve just added this new video to our Envisage library that highlights the signs and symptoms of COPD to patients, and advises them when they should seek medical advice.

Bowel Cancer Screening campaign

Millions of people in England who have been sent a lifesaving home testing kit that can detect early signs of bowel cancer are being encouraged to use it and return it as part of a new NHS campaign.

The new TV advert is now available in our Envisage library, and highlights how quick and convenient it is to complete the test with the advert showing a man joyfully running around his house with toilet roll before completing the test.

Act F.A.S.T stroke campaign

NHS England’s Act FAST stroke campaign was relaunched on 13th February. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the Act F.A.S.T. (Face, Arms, Speech, Time) acronym which provides a memorable way of identifying the most common signs of a stroke.

We’ve just added the official TV advert to our Envisage library which highlights the Act F.A.S.T. acronym, and and emphasises the importance of acting quickly and calling 999 if someone suspects that anyone is having a stroke.

New Weather App feature

There’s nothing more that we like talking about than the weather, and you can now display a live weather feed in your waiting room using Envisage! It’s really easy to setup and you can choose from a range locations across the UK.
