The success of healthcare organizations today depends on the effectiveness of the communications between and among caregivers and patients. Advanced communications solutions have therefore become an essential tool for enabling healthcare staff to work together seamlessly and deliver responsive, coordinated patient care.
Moving forward, the importance of healthcare communications technology will continue to rise. The world is increasingly mobile. The population is getting older. Caregivers are dealing with more complicated and acute health issues—even as the pool of healthcare practitioners shrinks. All the while, more transparency and accountability are demanded with respect to patient satisfaction scores and The Joint Commission’s Key Quality Measures. The result of all this? Workflow is fragmented and caregivers have less time with patients. Under these circumstances, staff need every advantage technology can provide to make them more efficient—and to improve the delivery of mission-critical information that drives patient well-being.
