Not so long ago, pagers were an important tool of everyday life. Inexpensive, reliable, and secure, these texting tools played a key role in medicine.
And while others retired their pagers, some doctors are still relying on these devices.
The reasons are many: they are small and light enough to carry on a belt, recharging is as simple as popping in new batteries, and they make it easy to send group messages to alert a team of medical personnel of a patient emergency.
Yet, convenience is relative. Pagers and other outdated communication technologies cost U.S hospitals more than $8.3 Billion annually, according to a survey by Ponemon Institute.
The survey also found that doctors and nurses waste around 45 minutes daily because of ineffective communication systems.
But surely there’s a better way for doctors to communicate.
AndPlus understood the unique challenges faced by medical institutions and helped Critical Alert Systems develop an innovative app solution.
The Critical Pager app allows physicians to reduce the number of devices they carry for paging and phone calls, bringing a new level of convenience and efficiency.
Because of its signal strength, the app is the most reliable solution for critical communications, especially in the event of emergencies, such as a natural disaster.
Additionally, this HIPAA-Compliant app allows doctors to have instant access to sensitive patient information, alerts, and notifications.
And there’s more. You have the possibility to view context around patient requests, and accept or reject assignments directly on your device. Plus, you can create new requests and reminders directly from the console.
Proper communication amongst hospital staff is vital for optimum patient care and satisfaction. Ditch your old pager, and use this app to make it both easier and more efficient.
