See how the advantages Mobile Heartbeat brings to a care team extend to all areas of your hospital. Click the tabs to learn how your Emergency Department, Nursing floors, and Physicians can benefit from a Mobile Heartbeat implementation.
Increase team effectiveness and efficiency
Mobile Heartbeat’s Lab and Patient Information features streamline large amounts of clinical data and deliver it straight to your team. All vital information is displayed at their fingertips, allowing them to easily make critical care decisions and treat patients quickly and effectively. Team members also have access to role-based directories that enable one-touch communication to the right staff members for assistance. As a result, your facility will see more patients on a day-to-day basis and increase revenue coming to the hospital.
Increase team satisfaction
Hospital IT systems are often difficult and frustrating to, especially in the high-pressure situations faced by the emergency department. Mobile Heartbeat delivers the same clinical information provided by old, burdensome technology but displays it on an intuitive interface that is fast and easy to navigate. By delivering messages quickly and creating automatic audit trails, Mobile Heartbeat eliminates the need for pagers and bulky wireless devices. This real-time advantage gives staff everything thing they need to perform their jobs easily and effectively during crunch time. Staff can now spend more time caring for patients while avoiding risk due to miscommunication or data delays – both costly occurrences in a hospital.
Decrease response time
Fast access to nurse calls and alerts through Mobile Heartbeat enable timely caregivers responses to patient needs. Pagers and overhead intercoms often cause lapses in hospital communication. Mobile Heartbeat eliminates these lapses by providing staff with instant notifications through group and text messaging, nurse calls, and alerts. The ability to respond to patients quickly will increase patient satisfaction and will result in better performance on HCAHPS surveys.
Streamlining communication and data delivery means doctors and nurses spend less time sorting through paperwork or hunting down other staff for information. Staff members now can spend more time with patients answering questions and explaining their treatment. Stress levels and time wasted decreases over time, boosting team morale and patients’ perception of care.
Improve Quality of Care
Mobile Heartbeat delivers patient data straight from hospital data feeds directly to those who need it most. Doctors and nurses are provided with the latest vital signs, lab results, and patient details, allowing them to provide optimal care at all points of a patient’s stay. Quality of care directly reflects re-admission rates as well as satisfaction. With Mobile Heartbeat, your staff can easily provide the best care possible and reduce the number of patients readmitted after treatment.
By providing fast and secure contact with doctors outside of the hospital, Mobile Heartbeat enables care teams to treat patients without having to wait for their doctor to return. The ability to quickly consult off-site physicians helps your team treat patients with confidence and prevent medical errors, which can be very costly and damaging to a hospital’s reputation.
Increase patient safety when doctors cannot be present, patients may be at risk if issues arise and their physicians are not there to react. Mobile Heartbeat connects on-site staff directly with doctors outside of the hospital through HIPAA-complaint texts and FMC calling, allowing nurses to reach doctors if they have questions or in the event of an emergency. This fast-track consultation will reduce patient risk as well as provide better patient outcomes through more thorough and informed decision-making and treatment.
