Slack has undergone a significant transformation, expanding beyond its origins as a tech staple to become a versatile platform embraced by various industries, including healthcare. It plays a crucial role in facilitating physician communication, providing dedicated channels for different medical specialties. However, Slack poses the following limitations in the healthcare context:

1. Inability to elevate critical communications above the clutter.
2. Inability to accommodate schedules and shifts.
3. Inability to accommodate escalation policies in a critical event.
4. Inability to display whether the message was read, regardless of recipient’s privacy settings.
5. Inability to produce reporting by group and organization.

How does the OnPage-Slack integration address these shortcomings

Elevate Critical Communications Above the Clutter

Slack, while excellent for general communication, may not effectively prioritize critical messages/”pages”. OnPage ensures urgent messages take precedence by providing your care teams with a dedicated platform solely for critical alerts and notifications. This ensures these messages don’t get lost in the noise of regular communication.

Accommodate Escalation Policies During Critical Events

Unlike Slack, OnPage allows for the creation and customization of escalation policies. If a critical message goes unacknowledged for a set period, OnPage can automatically escalate it to the next level of responsible healthcare specialist, ensuring urgent matters are addressed promptly.

Showing Message Status Regardless of Recipient Settings

OnPage provides complete transparency on message statuses, ensuring that senders know whether a critical message has been delivered, read, or acknowledged by the recipient. This visibility enables immediate action if necessary, bridging the gap left by Slack’s limitations in message status tracking.
