Communications can help achieve the goals of better, more cost-effective healthcare. By cutting through communications barriers and making it easier for doctors, nurses, hospital staff and more to connect and collaborate, today’s new IP-based solutions are helping to improve healthcare outcomes.
Today’s new communications systems are ideally suited for the world of healthcare. Based on the IP protocol, they are more like computers than traditional phone systems: more versatile, able to accept applications, ready to become integrated into everyday health care operations, becoming a “go-to” resource for:
- Enhancing collaboration by simplifying interactions between doctors and other medical professionals
- Taking advantage of applications specifically designed to enhance health care operations, such as nurse communications and patient appointment confirmations
- Integrating communications directly into business processes, such as patient record and billing systems
- Lowering overhead costs
