ADVANTAGES

Affordable Patient Rental Rates
Hôpitel has structured its rental service rates to ensure that they are affordable to all patients. A descending discount scale is used to provide lower rental rates the longer the patient uses the service and multiple rental services are bundled and offered at reduced rates. Hôpitel rental fees offer excellent value for the patients, families and or friends using the services. The rental fees are only payable from the time the patient confirms their intention to use the service.

Customer Service
Where instant access services are unavailable our friendly well-trained Bedside Agents provide customer service in a professional manner at all times. When visiting patients, they utilize a specially designed cart equipped with spare TV Media Terminals, telephones, earpieces, headphones, hard drives and rental receipts to provide the spare TV Media Terminal and telephone rental service. This process ensures that the management of the services, including the issuing of receipts, takes place where it is most convenient; at the patient`s bedside. Additionally, all Bedside Agents are trained to provide clear, easy to follow instructions in the full use of the spare TV Media Terminal and Telephone systems ensuring that the infotainment and communication services does not consume any hospital staff time.
