Cambridge Sound Management Strengthens Healthcare Offering with New Sound Masking Solution

WALTHAM, MA -- Cambridge Sound Management introduces a speech privacy solution for medical office waiting rooms, exam rooms, and pharmacies.

"Our healthcare customers and designers have been asking for a simplified speech protection system that could be easily deployed in open reception areas to protect sensitive conversations between patients and staff," says Christopher Calisi, CEO of Cambridge Sound Management. "Helping medical staff and facility managers meet HIPPA privacy rules – whiles simultaneously improving the overall patient experience – was the core driver behind this exciting product."

The Qt Patient Privacy System helps protect patient privacy by making conversations in healthcare environments less intelligible to unintended listeners. Often overlooked in healthcare design is the lack of speech privacy in reception areas where private conversations can be easily overheard. Furthermore, many patient exam rooms often don't provide adequate speech privacy due to a lack of sound blocking building material. With an increased focus on patient quality of care and achieving HIPPA privacy regulations, the Qt Patient Privacy system is an affordable solution to solve an important problem.

The Qt Patient Privacy System is an all-in-one privacy solution consisting of a control module, two lighted privacy status signs, and a series of direct-field sound masking emitters. The control module is easily installed behind the reception desk or in the back office, and the lighted privacy signs inform patients and staff that their conversations are protected. The barely visible direct-field sound masking emitters can be installed in any ceiling type. The system is installed by Cambridge Sound Management's extensive network of certified sound masking specialists.

The Qt Patient Privacy System is now available for pre-order and ships on February 25th, 2016.
