“Responding” to the Need for Improved Staff Communication

Posted by Jennifer Holden on Thu, Mar 12, 2020 @ 11:03 AM

Among the goals outlined for hospital personnel is the delivery of important test results to the right staff person on time.

To help address this goal, hospitals and health systems can use advanced nurse call systems to enhance communication and, ultimately, patient care. Indeed, the right communication tool can strengthen clinical, operational and even financial outcomes.

To keep a patient safe and on the road to recovery, provider teams must be on the same page and have access to the most up-to-date information, such as test results, to ensure the highest quality of care. Nurse call technology connects all devices and providers to confirm someone is equipped with the right information to make the right decision. Through technology optimization, all members of a care team are aware of their roles and can access the patient information and care plan in real time for up-to-date decision making.
