Clinical Communications Platform

The Need for a Clinical Communication Platform

Modern healthcare teams require a modern healthcare communication solution to streamline clinical communication and medical workflows. In life-and-death situations, it’s critical that physicians receive immediate alerts and messages to provide patient care promptly.

OnPage is the industry’s most trusted healthcare communication platform. OnPage is more reliable and secure than traditional pagers. The system enables care teams to easily communicate and achieve maximum patient satisfaction.

Key Features to Look for in a CC&C Solution

A clinical communication and collaboration platform (CC&C) goes a step beyond just being a secure, HIPAA-compliant messaging provider. It transforms the way care teams communicate, collaborate and provide patient care. It helps strengthen care team communication, boost operational and employee efficiency, ensure reliability and security, all while delivering excellent patient care.

Key components of a CC&C platform include:

“OnPage Dramatically Improved Our Clinical Communications”

 

“My team has replaced all individual pagers and transferred this functionality to various OnPage builds on either Android-based smartphones or iPhones. I live in Central Mass and my reception for pages was spotty using the pagers we had been using and now I actually get pages more reliably. It is also nice not to have to take a separate piece of hardware with me when I am on call for my group.”
