The IDS Communication Board – A Patented System

Communication is critical to the operation of health care systems. JCAHO data shows that the underlying cause of 65% of sentinel events is a breakdown in communication. Our patented Communication Board Systems were created with this problem in mind. They provide a tool for transparent communication among patients, care givers, non-care giving staff, and visitors. Based on data from trials with these boards, they can provide better understanding of care, provide a central location and organized means to communicate information about procedures, and clarify results of various efforts.

The IDS Communication Board may be created with or without accompanying imagery to calm and soothe the viewer. Viewers can clearly see names of care givers, schedules for treatments or activities, dates, or telephone numbers. The combinations are up to you. Promote clearer communication and watch patient satisfaction rise.

Each of these communication systems is totally customizable including size, wording, images and logos. In addition, ID Signsystems provides a template library of tested elements. We work with your staff and administrators to determine your needs and preferences and produce a template that meets the unique needs of your facility.


Each system is created in three parts: an easy-to-clean, dry-erase surface, a custom insert underneath, and an anodized aluminum, sturdy frame that snaps open on all four sides to make every board changeable.



I can’t thank you enough. Everyone loves the boards, from patients, to staff, to hospital administration!

The plan is that each unit will develop their own, as their individual units are remodeled.

The unit designing process is moving very slowly, but I will be sure to put each unit manager in contact with you as it comes time for them to develop their own communication boards.

Once again, I can’t compliment you enough. I received a wonderful product and impeccable service. I can’t wait to work with you again in the near future.
