Clearing up Hospital Communications – In the OR and the Waiting Room


April 7, 2017 - 2 Comments

We rely on our specialized partners to play to their strengths. Singlewire, an ISV headquartered in Wisconsin, is one of them. They’ve developed a mass notification system that sends audio, text, and images to mobile and on-premises devices. This makes it easier for companies to share info fast – whether it’s a chemical spill at a factory or a snow day for a school district. It’s working really well for their customer Aspirus Healthcare.

Singlewire says…

We work with Aspirus Healthcare, which serves 60,000 people in central Wisconsin and northern Michigan. Their facilities include eight hospitals and more than 40 clinics. When they needed to renovate their operating rooms, they realized they didn’t have a plan for incorporating intercoms for overhead paging. Their legacy paging system also needed to be replaced. On top of that, they needed a simple system to communicate with medical staff, while not sharing sensitive pages with patient families.

We helped Aspirus use InformaCast to boost the power of their paging capabilities over their Cisco IP phones. We were able to set up simple, uniform paging buttons on Cisco phones that made it easy for doctors and nurses to signal critical Code Blue pages.

With assistance from InformaCast, they were also able to set up paging zones and tones that kept these pages discreet. This reduced stress for patient families, as Code Blue pages were directed away from waiting areas to only reach hospital staff that could respond.

Together, we’re delivering excellent patient care.

Thanks, Singlewire.

The story doesn’t end there.
