Acute Care: Streamline Communication and Save Critical Time

Acute care cases, such as STEMI, Stroke, Trauma, and Sepsis require fast communication for decreased treatment times and more efficient care. To reduce the risk of staff burnout and shuffle less information between solutions and technology, acute care teams need to be able to access all data in one place. Having access to a case management platform can help to reduce burnout, improve care coordination, facilitate clearer communication and improve time to treatment for acute care patients. 

Acute Care Challenges

  • Difficulty conveying patient information and symptoms with audio only 
  • Increased wall times and slow patient handoffs when hospital teams aren’t alerted about the needs of time-sensitive acute care patients en route 
  • Adhering to regional guidelines for acute care processes and metric tracking  
  • Staff burnout with a lack of clear communication between teams 
  • Staffing Shortages and case overload  
  • Disorganization in the ED
