According to the ECRI Institute, four of the Top Ten Patient Safety Concerns for Healthcare Organizations relate to communication. So it’s no surprise that hospitals are making it a priority to equip caregivers with the tools they need to communicate more efficiently.
This Thursday, you can learn how one health system is integrating new communication technology with existing systems to achieve better patient safety, patient satisfaction, staff satisfaction and operational efficiency. Hosted by Patient Safety & Quality Healthcare and sponsored by Voalte and Zebra Technologies, Avera Health will present a webinar on connecting caregivers and improving patient outcomes.
