Sound masking is the process of adding background sound to reduce noise distractions, protect speech privacy and increase office comfort.
Healthcare - Protect Patient Privacy
Qt® Patient Privacy System, a speech protection system designed for medical office waiting areas, exam rooms, and pharmacies.
Cost-effective sound masking solution to protect patient and staff conversations in all types of medical facilities. Industry mandated standards have also become more important as hospitals strive to earn better HCAHPS scores and HIPAA compliance.
In today's medical offices protecting patient privacy is critical, and is enforced via HIPAA privacy regulations. Acoustics and sound privacy are often overlooked in open-floor plan waiting areas, and in patient rooms - where sound can easily travel over walls and through glass.
Corporate Offices - Keep private meetings private
Corporate offices feature a variety of workspaces that require their own unique solutions for improving worker comfort, productivity, and speech privacy. Modern open offices contain far more reflective materials, such as glass and wood, than ever before. Then, combine those factors with more benching and less private offices. While these changes have made workplaces more aesthetically pleasing and collaborative, it has also affected the acoustics.
