We are pleased to announce that we have won the prestigious Digital Screenmedia Association Award for Excellence for the second year in a row. This year we won the award for Best Healthcare Deployment for our unique Respondr “Play” installation that was done for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital located in sunny South Florida.

Selected judges’ comments:
“This is a good interactive kiosk. The use of the acrylic screen that can easily be sanitized was a smart one. The unit attracts children and allows their motion to effect the screen.”
“What a great focal point for what looks to be a wonderful waiting area for the children at the hospital. This can be an anxious time for children and parents and this attractive setting and fun filled activity reduces the stress level I’m sure! Measuring success by happy faces counts for a lot.”
“1) The deployment has positive social impact 2) The appearance of the deployment is inviting for both adults and children”
“Very good write up; interesting use of digital media to help children get through tough times in the hospital. Looks like visiting children can also “play”, which is useful.”
“Nice attention to detail. Calling out the usability for the intended audience by adding the electrical outlets shows a lot of thought went into this project. Nice work.”
“I have seen these systems before and they are very engaging for the kids. With the correct content, they will accomplish their goals of creating a fun environment. The added bonus is that it is interactive. I also like that they made it large enough for multiple kids to participate at the same time. Content for these systems seems to be a little expensive to create, which may limit how fresh it is. However, with the correct strategy, they will hopefully build an inventory of content to work through.”
“Every Children’s Hospital should have one of these.”
“I want one for my coffee table! I’ve seen technology like this before, and at the time thought, “Cute, but is there more this could be doing?” Respondr and Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital answered my question in a positive and uplifting way. This experience looks outstanding for the kids being treated at the hospital AND for their siblings who have to wait and wait and wait in the lobby!”
A special thanks goes out to Creative Arts Unlimited along with the team at Memorial West (especially Horacio Randazzo) for making this entire project such a great experience from start to finish.
