In this Connected Room, the users (patients, visitors and hospital professionals) can enjoy the same connectivity as they do in their own homes, and can connect up to Wi-Fi or TV, finally saying goodbye to those inconvenient times when you had to put a coin in a meter before you could watch a programme.
