On-call affects almost every department and healthcare provider. Yet because on-call is often so fractured, subsequent communications are hindered. These breakdowns cost as much as $765 billion in waste.
Our newest white paper 6 Ways to Improve On-Call Management identifies 6 ways providers can improve healthcare communications by starting with on-call activities such as:
- Eliminating pager use. Employ smartphone platforms to expedite messaging.
- Enable smartphone communications throughout hospitals to improve care coordination
- Allow for on-call messaging from the hospital to outside providers. Not only will better coordination ensue but better patient outcomes will also result.
