Infographics take a complex issue and present it in an easy-to-understand format. The healthcare industry certainly has its share of complex issues, which is why Voalte has created so many infographics. We choose a difficult subject, dig up the latest research on that topic, and then portray not only the challenges but also some solutions. In case you’ve missed them, here is a sampling of several Voalte infographics that shine a light on common difficulties faced by many healthcare organizations.
Benefits of smartphones in hospitals.
How do smartphones improve healthcare? Let us list the ways. From improving job satisfaction for nurses to decreasing medication administration errors, smartphones pave the way to numerous benefits for caregivers and their patients. You may not see nurses jumping for joy like the one in our infographic, but happier nurses can translate to happier patients.
The high cost of low HCAHPS scores.
We provide smartphones for caregivers, not patients. So how can smartphones boost patient satisfaction and, ultimately, HCAHPS scores? This infographic pinpoints three questions on the HCAHPS Hospital Survey that smartphones can impact. By supporting faster nurse response times and reduced hallway noise, more efficient communication can help your hospital earn top-box scores. And nowadays, a couple HCAHPS points can have a big financial impact.
Rx for doctor disconnect.
How can doctors stay engaged when they are left out of the communication loop? This infographic explores the latest trends in physician communication, as pager use declines and healthcare organizations focus on secure text messaging for the entire care team.
It’s time to solve the ED throughput crisis.
Long wait times in hospital Emergency rooms are just one reason our national grade for emergency care is a dismal D+. Take a look at this infographic for some critical stats that show how inefficient patient throughput can lead to fewer patients receiving the care they need, and result in a loss of revenue for the hospital.
Taming the alarm beast.
As unruly alarms come under increasing scrutiny, it’s more important than ever for healthcare organizations to reign in excessive alarms and alerts, and get a handle on caregiver alarm fatigue. See our infographic for an alarming view of this pressing problem.
If you have an issue you’d like to see depicted in an eye-catching infographic, let us know. We’re always looking to simplify healthcare challenges and offer up realistic solutions.
