Streamline Your Hospital’s IT & TV Network with IPTV

Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) is a system through which television services (broadcast TV content, video-on-demand, other multimedia content) are delivered using the Internet protocol suite over the hospital’s local- and/or wide-area network. IPTV combines your TV and IT network for a customizable and streamlined content distribution solution that keeps your hospital or other healthcare facility’s television systems up-to-date and relevant to today’s patient demands.

As the leading provider of hospital television systems in the country, TeleHealth Services is proud to be on the forefront of this cutting-edge technology. Now, with our new Internet Protocol TV platform, we are able to deliver the same outstanding HDTV experience our clients and their patients expect, with the extensive capabilities inherent to an IP network.
