2020 Healthcare lighting trends

How does the healthcare industry use lighting for function, patient wellness, and health? Which healthcare industry lighting practice trends should you follow? Join us for this informative webinar on LED lighting in healthcare facilities. We will discuss proper illumination, dimming, circadian benefits, procedural equipment tracking, and the role lighting plays to provide germicidal treatment for areas in healthcare facilities. We will also examine lighting options for interior and exterior spaces and how these lighting features can enhance the healthcare environment.

As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Evaluate existing lighting and compare new LED technologies that can improve your system.
  2. Discuss LED technologies to consider for specific hospital areas such as exam rooms, waiting rooms, bathrooms, patient consult/training rooms, procedural areas, hallways, general public entrance, and informational areas.
  3. List lighting terms to better evaluate and compare what LED lighting can provide.
  4. Identify research on health benefits and germicidal solutions.

Who should view:

Healthcare professionals involved with lighting decisions, suppliers, reps, specifiers, and others involved with LED lighting solution implementation.
