BURLINGTON, Mass., – Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), a global software company that provides critical event management and enterprise safety applications to help keep people safe and businesses running, today announced it will showcase its critical communications platform and discuss the evolution of telemedicine at ATA 2017, taking place April 23 – 25, 2017 in Orlando, FL. Everbridge is  a leading critical communications provider, supporting hospitals and emergency departments with emergency preparedness, patient management, and IT communications. During the event, Everbridge will be making a presentation on telemedicine. WHAT:                 From Volume to Value: Changing the Role of Telemedicine WHEN:                 Tuesday, April 25 at 2:00 p.m. WHERE:               Room: W230 BC WHAT:                 U.S. healthcare is rapidly moving from a volume-to-value based model of care. Providers today are actively looking for ways to improve quality, decrease costs, and expand services to a broad and often difficult-to-engage population. This panel will discuss clinicians’ experience leading telemedicine programs across several different healthcare settings including primary care, pediatric care, and emergency departments. Attendees will learn about the unique challenges for each setting, the commonalities all providers face in meeting this triple aim and the evolving role of telemedicine. WHO:                   Eric Chetwynd, General Manager for Healthcare, Everbridge Ranya Habash, MD CMO, MAB, Chief Medical Officer, Everbridge Geeta Nayyar, MD, MBA, Chief Healthcare & Innovation Officer, Femwell Group Health Cydne Marckmann, DNP, ARNP, FAANP, Nurse Practitioner, Frontier Nursing University In addition to the presentation, Everbridge will share statistics from its “Care Communications Gaps in U.S. Hospital Emergency Departments” research. The study polled more than 150 hospitals  to gather insights on clinical communications within the emergency room. Some of the findings include:
  • A majority of emergency room employees reported more than 10 percent of patient care hand offs contain communication errors – errors that could endanger patient outcomes; 22 percent reported more than 1 in 5 hand offs involve errors.
  • Emergency room staff ranked the most, and least, effective forms of communication; real-time, face-to-face communication is most used and most effective. Secure-text messaging came in second for valued communication, an asset in today’s healthcare system where specialists and other medical resources are often not on-site with the patient.
“Everbridge is excited to participate in this year’s ATA 2017,” said Everbridge General Manager for Healthcare Eric Chetwynd. “Many health systems are trying to implement telemedicine programs across the country, but are challenged to implement the right real-time communication systems, policies, and workflows that can drive adoption and improve patient care. Everbridge is proud to be working with some of our over 1,000 U.S. hospital customers along their journey to usher in this new era of connected, highly accessible, highly effective healthcare.” About Everbridge: Everbridge, Inc.
