What is Sound Masking?
Sound masking is a specifically tuned ambient background sound that targets the same frequency as human speech, reducing its intelligibility.
How does it work?
The system includes a series of small speakers in your ceiling with a wall mounted control unit. The speakers produce a tuned ambient background noise which reduces noise distractions, protects speech privacy, boosts productivity, and improves office comfort.
Businesses that can benefit from Speech Privacy:
- Patients’ Rooms
- Psychiatric Counseling Rooms
- Doctors’ Offices
- Treatment Rooms
- Call Centers
- Open Offices
Sound Masking for HIPAA Compliance
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates how a healthcare provider implements safeguards to protect patient privacy. If patients can overhear other people’s discussions, they feel they might also be heard by others. As a result, patients may feel that they cannot fully discuss their issues and questions with healthcare professionals.
