An advanced nurse call system improves communication and workflow across many teams within an organization. The type of nurse call system and key capabilities that work best for an organization can be influenced by a multitude of factors including facility size, location, patient demographics and departmental needs. For example, a hospital in a densely-populated, urban setting will have significantly different needs and resource demands than those of a rural facility.
The process of researching and selecting a new nurse call system doesn’t have to be daunting. Understanding what steps you take and what to consider when comparing the different options available for your hospital or health system will simplify the process from selection through implementation. Partnering with the right technology provider also will ensure your organization achieves its goals through the investment in the short and long term.
