When a Nurse in the hospital wants to send an urgent message to a physician, there is a significant time lag between the message sent and message received.
This delay in conveying the message to the physician could be a result of:
- Nurse has to search for the physician’s phone number
- No one answering the phone at the physician’s office
- A busy answering service
- The caller being put on hold
- Phone lines at the physician’s office being down
Improving communication in hospitals is one of the most important challenges facing the field of health care. According to the Joint Commission, a nonprofit organization that certifies thousands of health care agencies across the nation, communication breakdown is the single greatest contributory factor to critical events and delays in care at U.S. hospitals. When time is such a critical component to health care, there is no room for the industry to lag behind when it comes to communication between various health care personnel.
