The Importance of Communication & Collaboration in Hospitals
Staff communication is important, especially in healthcare. Effective communication in healthcare can literally be a matter of life and death. So, make sure you have a solution you can rely on. According to a study published in 2016 by the University of California, San Francisco, more than a quarter of hospital readmissions could have been avoided with improved communication.
The Benefits of a Reliable Communication Solution
Effective communication in healthcare can save a life. Improved care team collaboration can aid in:
- Better patient outcomes.
- Faster decision-making.
- Higher patient satisfaction.
- Reduction in clinical communications-related errors.
- Improved nurse-to-physician and nurse-to-nurse communications.
- Higher productivity from staff overall.
- Higher employee satisfaction.
Consider how much tighter care team collaboration could be when a patient’s care team leverages this type of solution. All members could stay abreast of the patient’s condition and collaborate on next steps toward wellness.
Bridging the Collaboration Gap Within Critical Access
Communications are vital to any organization, but for healthcare providers, reliable communications literally can be a matter of life or death.
Cloud-based solutions deployed across hospitals on affordable point of care (POC) smart mobile devices are easier to implement than you might think. They provide a faster path to improved care team collaboration and return on investment.
Effective communication in healthcare on mobile and web devices utilized by the hospital staff and affiliates are critical for both efficiency and privacy.
Digital technologies collect health data from individuals, whether on-site or remote, and securely transmit that information electronically to healthcare providers at another location. In doing this, it closely monitors medical conditions, and, if need be, intervenes.
A hospitals readmission rate often reflects how well its patient care is overall, and the efficacy of treatment while the patient is both on-site and post-care.
