Embracing Rapid Change in Medicine

By Greg Brown on Jul 10, 2020

It is obvious to those in our industry that healthcare is preparing for a seismic shift in the way we deliver, access, and treat our patients. Unfortunately, it took a global viral emergency for that to happen. 

Periods of great stress can be a catalyst for periods of fantastic innovation. Just like a lump of coal, the tremendous pressure that healthcare has faced during COVID-19 will transform our delivery model into a diamond. Traditional pipeline methods of care delivery, communication, and treatment will undergo rapid changes and iterations of process improvement. With this incoming wave of change, it’s time to let our hair down a bit. I urge all clinicians not to limit yourself on what you think can and cannot be done.

Breaking Silos: The True Cost of Inefficient Communication Systems in Healthcare [WEBINAR]

By Hannah Ostrem on Aug 27, 2018

It's a fact: poor communication contributes to 80% of medical errors, over 33% of all malpractice suits, poor patient outcomes and redundant costs. 

As a patient transitions through the healthcare system, the hand off between healthcare teams puts them at great risk. To make matters worse, current technology solutions isolate patient care teams in communication silos, further contributing to this breakdown.

How do you connect pre-hospital and inter-facility specialists with your intra-facility teams?

3 Ways Your Smartphone Can Improve Communication Between EMS and Hospital EDs

When you’re transporting a stroke patient, every second matters. JAMA researchers found that it takes an average of seven minutes for EMS units to arrive on the scene, and nearly one in 10 encounters involve up to a 30-minute wait. For some patients, like those who are transported for having an ischemic stroke, every moment is critical.

Patients with time-sensitive emergencies often get treated by multiple providers at different points, each of whom has to update the next provider with the patient’s information. In a highly stressful emergency room environment, it’s easy for communication to break down during EMS patient handoffs.
