Healthcare is an increasingly complex and collaborative system with hospitals already operating at or near maximum capacity daily. During critical events, the ability to anticipate and respond defines how adept hospitals will be in mitigating a host of risks that can threaten resilience. When seconds matter, lives depend on a coordinated real-time response typically involving multiple stakeholders, across multiple hospital sites. Whether responding to a daily, non-emergent clinical case or a high-acuity case, care providers are typically challenged with managing capacity and delivering quality patient care in less time, while exceeding compliance standards and patient expectations. All the while, they must maintain a safer environment of care by ensuring IT systems and technologies are running smoothly and any technology related incidents are resolved rapidly with little-to-no impact on patient care hospital operations.
COVID-19 has changed nearly every aspect of normal life, but perhaps none more so than healthcare systems. From the onset of the pandemic to vaccine administration, Everbridge continues to help hospitals adapt and respond to this rapidly changing, complex health crisis. As hospitals work toward safely resuming care and building a new normal, Everbridge’s robust risk mitigation and emergency response platform is being leveraged with capabilities including:
COVID-19 will continue to alter healthcare systems for some time. Hospitals can depend on Everbridge for unique solutions to every complex challenge they face now and in the future.
Don’t let an incident make a greater impact than your response. From natural disasters to chemical spills to mass casualty incidents, hospitals and health systems need to be able to communicate and coordinate rapidly with many constituents about how to respond to the emergency while maintaining compliance to CMS guidelines.Read More
Clinical communication and collaboration are the key to good clinical care. This is especially true for hospitals and health system where care teams need to be able to rapidly communicate to manage the highest acuity patients including strokes, STEMI, and trauma patients when every minute counts.Read More
Software, hardware and IT failures, as well as ransomware and other cyber-attacks, impact EHR and other essential hospital systems. When teams need to be identified and rallied to address the situation, every minute saved by automating communications and ensuring the right people are alerted and begin resolving the issue as fast as possible results in improved patient care and reduced physician and staff frustration.Read More
Are you ready for your next compliance audit, are your communication plans CMS ready? If you have completed an audit, are there areas of improvement you need to re-examine?
Cybersecurity is top of mind for every hospital IT person these days. Cyberattacks can come from a myriad of sources and expose patient data, or with ransomware, can put patients’ health at risk by blocking access to EHRs.View Infographic
This white paper, authored by Shahid Shah, “The Healthcare IT Guy” shares insight into how effective communications strategies across your hospital can help drive improved patient outcomes, increased workflow efficiencies and, ultimately, reduced costs.Read More
Statistics show that hospitals are one of the most hazardous work places in the U.S., and with active shooter events on the rise in the healthcare industry – nearly doubling in a 12 year period between 2000 and 2011, according to a Johns Hopkins study – it is clear hospital staff need to be prepared for these emergency scenarios.Learn More
