High Costs for Hospitals
Inefficient communications during critical clinical
workflows costs the average U.S. hospital approximately
$1.75 million annually.
Consequences of Poor Communication
Poor communication will cost health organizations much more than hefty costs. According to 7,000 facilities, 48 percent of communication failures occurred within ambulatory care, as well as the inpatient setting at 44 percent. Consequently, this tarnishes patient-to-specialist relationships and likely leads to patient churn.
