Before we celebrate Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow, we at TigerText wanted to take a moment to give thanks to the people, processes, and partners that are improving the way care teams communicate using clinical communication and collaboration in 2017:
Innovative ways to improve care team collaboration – Client feedback has led to new integrations and features that are improving the way care teams work together.
Reduction of pager use in hospitals – This antiquated technology needs to go and we are thankful that we see it starting to happen.
Reduced readmissions – This means less wasted time for patients and less wasted efforts for clinicians. Kennedy Health saw a decrease in congestive heart failure readmission rates by 22.2 percent and chronic pulmonary obstructive disease readmission rates by 8.8 percent after implementing TigerText.
Our partnerships with technology leaders like Samsung – Modernizing healthcare communication takes strong partnerships with like-minded agents of change.
For Nurses and their dedication to patients – The backbone of most care teams, nurses initiate 60% of clinical communication messages being at the center of patient care
For the Physicians and their commitment to care – Despite the workflow inefficiencies they have to deal with, they still find time to put the patient first
To be part of an industry of highly dedicated professionals – Working alongside other modern healthcare companies, hospitals, and organizations to develop the amazing technology that is changing medicine in the 21st century.
And most of all, we want to thank the forward-looking organizations that are embracing clinical communications to help save lives every day and improve the care that we receive. Happy Thanksgiving!
