Helping Hospitals to Communicate Securely and Quickly
In critical situations, hospitals have significant operational challenges related to staffing, resources, technology, and care. Your biggest challenge of course, is delivering the best quality care to all patients. Whether it’s an unforeseen crisis, a need-to-know situation, or dealing with HIPAA law in daily clinical communications, we equip healthcare organizations with the unified critical communications platform needed to deliver high-quality patient care while efficiently keeping staff connected, without violating HIPAA privacy rules.

Better Manage IT System Outages
EHR, HIMSS & Clinical Information Systems—Technology is everywhere in the hospital. When IT outages happen they can delay care, frustrate employees, and cause lost revenue. IT Alerting helps you restore IT system outages and quickly keep internal stakeholders informed, as IT Response Teams improve collaboration during triage, investigation, and resolution activities.
Reduce Code Alert Errors
Cut the time it takes to issue and respond to yellow, red, pink, black, and stroke code alerts with communications that require incident-specific, pre-defined notification procedures. Use Incident Management to speed up STEMI alerts and notify emergency room personnel, cardiac catheterization laboratory technicians, and cardiologists faster to ensure patients receive life-saving treatment in record time.
