Benefits on Many Levels
Skills-based routing of requests can help offset the effect of staff shortages. Hospitals can set up their nurse call systems to categorize patient requests and direct them to the appropriate staff members. Each patient request and corresponding staff response can be recorded in a database for future reference. Access to up-to-date information enables hospital administration to stay better informed, leading to improved decision-making.
Nurse call solutions can communicate alarm and event notifications, reducing overhead paging. The result is a quieter and calmer healthcare environment for patients.
These systems may also integrate with unified communications (UC) solutions. With UC, healthcare facilities can take advantage of applications like context-aware mobility and presence services, paging, instant messaging, text-to-speech applications, voicemail, and more while using wireless endpoints.
