PatientSafe: The Need for Context-Aware Clinical Communication

Contextual communication lightens clinicians’ cognitive workload. Providers and caregivers need access to timely, relevant clinical information, and they should be able to route that to the best clinical
resources, based on their location, availability and preferred method of contact. This holistic approach to unifying users, devices and data is referred to as contextual communication. This white paper identies the challenges and opportunities for adopting contextual, clinical communication. It also identies how a secure, enterprise-wide solution can leverage the synergy of a wide network of users to add value in patient care.
