Yes, pagers have a reputation for being “old technology” and there’s no question that smartphones, tablets, and other devices have changed how people communicate in healthcare. But while some physicians and other clinical staff have migrated to using smartphones for time-sensitive communications, pagers remain key for many personnel, especially now that encrypted pagers are available for use in environments that demand HIPAA compliance.
So, why are many leading hospitals still maintaining their paging systems while adding many other device types to the mix? In this eBook, we’ll explore why healthcare organizations still value pagers for their reliability, simplicity, and longevity among physicians and nurses on the frontline of care, as well as nonclinical care team members “behind the scenes.”
In this guide, you’ll learn:
- Why leading hospitals are still maintaining their paging systems
- How pagers work in different ways to keep staff in touch
- How pagers are filling a crucial role in the response to COVID-19
