Overcoming communications challenges in an acute care hospital – beyond pagers!

Digital Maturity Forum
Topic(s): Apps and Wearables, Digitisation

• Among the many challenges hospitals face, communications may be the most recognized but also the most demanding.

• As part of the NHS’ Long Term Plan and Digital Transformation Strategy one goal is to eliminate outdated technologies such as fax machines and pagers by 2021. Hospitals have reacted, and so far, most digital communications deployments have been at the departmental level.

• There is a need to provide an enterprise-wide holistic solution that streamlines communications so that the right information is sent to the right clinician at the right time and using the right device – hands free wearables.

• And it’s more than just reducing costs. It’s about faster response times, shorter wait times, sharing clinical information and enhancing collaboration between clinicians that will ultimately save patient lives.
