How do you convince political and healthcare leaders that innovation and technology will play a vital role in the nation’s health? Use innovation and technology to explain it.
The Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health is a 12,000 square feet interactive learning center showcasing Kaiser’s vision for the future of healthcare — ‘the real world convergence of health, healthcare technology and innovation.’ The Center is described as a hybrid: a cross between corporate communications facility and visitor center.
Kaiser Permanente had a bold vision for the new Center — to use innovative technology to explain the concept of total health and present the story of innovations in telemedicine, mobile health apps and delivery of healthcare through smart devices. The Center achieves the vision in a compelling way that’s informative, educational and dynamic.
The Center integrates multiple state-of-the-art technologies including touch-screen walls, a multi-touch video wall, and interactive demonstration stations.
The highlight of the Center is the interactive Discovery Wall presenting the vision of ‘Total Health across America.’ At 80 feet long by 9 feet high, it claims to be one of the largest multitouch displays in the world. This wall makes a bold statement to both visitors on tours and delegates to meetings.
The video wall has to accommodate regular content updates so it was designed to operate in two modes – as a twin touchscreen system and a scaled down single section of video wall with gesture input system to a New York studio to facilitate content development.
Other interactive elements in demonstration zones give visitors the opportunity to discover the history of the company and learn more about the way doctors use technology to improve patients’ health.
Throughout the facility, other dynamic exhibits explore why total health is important, what total health looks like and how visitors can achieve total health. Various immersive environments and storylines challenge visitors to think about the next generation of health in schools, in the workplace and across the community.
The videowall required custom software to display the content and support easy-to-use interactivity powered by a multi camera gesture recognition system.
To ensure correct display of the images on the video wall, custom-built mirror rigs would be essential. Careful audio design and control was important to provide quality local sound for the various displays but special sound-mitigation solutions were also required to maintain the correct audio balance between public spaces and private meeting areas.
Electrosonic designed and integrated the sophisticated audiovisual installations in the public spaces and meeting areas. The 80-feet video wall provides an informative introduction to different aspects of health including prevention, wellness and community health with expert advice from doctors, academics, businesses and thought leaders.
A briefing room and other meeting spaces and interactive demonstration areas are equipped with acoustic panels to optimize and isolate audio throughout the center.
The innovative audiovisual installations and flexible meeting spaces have given Kaiser Permanente a highly effective interactive learning center to engage with policy makers, business leaders and the public.
The Center is now a popular destination hosting hundreds of tours and events each year where visitors can explore the concept of total health through unique immersive exhibits.
