Health IT tip of the day: A modern day organization uses modern day communications

The speed and efficiency of communication between care team members can make the difference in patient outcomes.

Anurag Lal, CEO for NetSfere in Chicago: Leverage a HIPAA-compliant, internal messaging app for your doctors and nurses to instantly communicate with each other. These apps are much more efficient than outdated pagers, and they have advanced features, like the ability to send images and encrypt messages for privacy and security. Make sure to confirm that the app facilitates full compliance with HIPAA and other global healthcare regulations for policies, procedures and all administrative, physical and technical safeguards.
