  4. Supporting mobile caregivers with encrypted communications and secure texting. What’s included in your mobile strategy?

Nat'e Guyton“I’m as passionate about technology as I am about patient care. I love innovation. For me, nursing is about the advocacy component and technology is the innovation component. I love meeting and engaging with nurses at AONE and getting their feedback. At so many organizations, nurses aren’t at the table when it comes to technology. And they need to be.”

AONE Session: 7 Must-Have Components for a Mobile Strategy

In 2017, we surveyed over 300 healthcare organizations and found 35 percent did not have a documented mobile strategy. According to the same survey, over half stated goals to improve nurse-to-physician communications and 43 percent wanted to improve nurse-to-nurse communications. Without a documented mobile strategy, it’s unlikely hospitals will achieve these goals. Stop by the Education Expo Pavilion on Saturday, April 14 to hear from Nat’e and learn seven components for a successful mobile strategy.

Key session takeaways: 

  • Build a mobile strategy that lays the foundation for clinical communications
  • Collect ideas to help you bring these components to your organization
