Frequently asked questions about Sentean’s products.

Yes. We have made agreements with a number of hospitals and healthcare centres. You can get a noncommittal tour through a healthcare institution of your choice and see our products in action. Contact us for more information.

Hospitalised patients will be enabled to do a lot of things themselves during their hospitalisation, using Sentean’s new all-in-one app. From ordering meals to viewing medical information, from controlling the lighting and temperature to calling a nurse. This way they gain control over their stay in the hospital. A few of the Netherlands’ major hospitals will start using this app this year.

Sentean products will be supplied by our exclusive partner Patientline. This cooperation ensures ample experience in over 34 hospitals in the Netherlands. Next to that, Sentean’s products have been in use in major hospitals for years. Each year over 100,000 patients use the application in Dutch hospitals.

We have a “smartphone density” of over 80%. In 2019 we expect 85% of the Dutch inhabitants to own a smartphone. The patient too will bring a smartphone to his/her visit to the doctor or when he/she is hospitalised.

The healthcare institution can offer a patient Sentean’s services on the patient’s own device. In this case the healthcare-app is there for entertainment, coaching, the agenda, scores and even – when back home – for video calls and ordering food. This way we accomplish optimal communication and efficiency. We support iOS and Android.

Sure! Nowadays patients stay in bed as short as possible and it’s in their best interest to get active again as fast as possible. Mobile technology fits right in there. The patient uses online television services in addition to scheduled television shows. “On demand” television is taking the place of “horizontal programming”. Patientline’s (disposable) headset offers privacy. In addition (video) calls, social media and email are welcome ways to get some distraction and to stay in contact with family and friends. We also offer reading matter on the patient’s own affection or treatment. There are also wards where normal televisions are still in use. We therefore also install a lot of “hybrid solutions” and we offer a “mix & match” of TV and tablet services with both regular and cordless solutions.

Yes, but naturally it requires a good coverage of the Wi-Fi network, in order to be able to use the applications always and everywhere.

We regularly perform a test (heat map) and we provide you with the results. The results of this heat map will include detailed description of the current and preferred technical specifications, which guarantees a correct infrastructure.

The TV and video application requires most capacity from both the Wi-Fi network and the available band width at your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

No, we will employ suitable devices that will both support traditional television services and the new tablet applications and/or the BYOD app.
This so-called HLS protocol is necessary to facilitate optimal use of the functionality and to enhance the patient’s experience.
