Secure Communication Software for Skilled Nursing Facilities

Skilled Nursing Facilities

Easing patient transitions while improving quality of care

Addressing challenges of skilled nursing facilities

Skilled nursing facilities face considerable challenges in an ever-changing environment. These include a shifting patient population, changes in healthcare regulations, and the transition to a value-based care system – not to mention keeping staff and residents safe during a pandemic or other crisis.. Oftentimes, poor communication can be the single largest barrier to improving patient care.

Some of the most common challenges skilled nursing facilities face include:

      • Lack of/incorrect information from hospitals around admissions, discharges, and transfers
      • High staffing and operating costs
      • Clinical and support staff turnover
      • Unsecured communications
      • Reducing medication errors
      • Patient and staff safety
