Better Communication Leads to Improved Workflow
Responder can indicate the needs of a patient in a room via a simple button press. A nurse can escort a patient into a room, take his or her vitals and update their chart, then press a button to start a series of events. A light outside the room can indicate the patient is ready for the physician, or the system can send a text message to a wireless device. Then, if the physician orders a lab to be drawn or a test to be scheduled, a different colored light can indicate this new event.
The Responder system can also integrate with electronic message boards called Marquees. These are used for a variety of communications - from a message to a physician or alerts to staff members when there is a need in another part of the office; they are especially helpful in reception areas to communicate the patient wait times.
Because the system is customized to your practice and process, the communication and workflow possibilities are endless. By harnessing the power of a nurse call system in your office, you can realize efficiencies you might not have thought possible.
