Replacing inefficient technology
Context-rich, secure communications
For healthcare IT and clinical leadership, efficient communication must be balanced with safeguarding patient health information. But outdated technology – which many clinicians rely on today – negatively impacts clinical productivity and satisfaction.
The need for replacing inefficient communication technology
A recent Ponemon Institute study found that providers waste an average of 35 minutes per shift in workflows such as admissions, transfers, and emergency response coordination. These time wastages are due to the inefficient communication problems of outdated technology . Such wastage translates into an annual loss of about $1.75 million per U.S. hospital and more than $11 billion, industry-wide.
