How Secure Texting Supports Readmission Reduction


Jun 30, 2015 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT
Virtual Event

Sending important patient information via emails or pages can cause a lag time on responses, a longer stay for patients and added costs for the facility. But by utilizing a text messaging technology that physicians and staff already use, you can streamline the entire process from when a patient is admitted to your facility until discharge.

By implementing a secure messaging solution (text messaging that’s HIPAA compliant), inter-staff communications are responded to faster, and consults expedited. Join us for a one-hour webinar as Faron Thompson, COO at Scottsdale Health Partners, details how the instant alerts of text messages leads to a reduction of readmission rates, improved patient care and delivered a cost reduction of 10 percent.

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Best practices for improving physician communications
  • The ROI from implementing a secure messaging solution
  • Benefits of integrating an HIE with a communication platform
