Hospital workers encounter a countless number of problems on a daily basis, and many of these are compounded by the fact that there is a shortage of registered nurses. What’s more, The Canadian Nurses Association estimates that 60,000 nurses will be needed by 2022 to fill the shortage. In our next few videos, we’ll explore how hosted collaboration solutions can help solve this and other issues facing the healthcare industry.
Forrester Research estimates that nurses waste 30 minutes each day attempting to retrieve messages and returning calls they’ve missed. Finding other caregivers to look after their patients while they do this also wastes time and resources.
FlexITy, a Cisco certified unified communication and collaboration provider has the solutions to help ensure that nurses receive important messages the first time they’re sent, reducing the need for them to waste time returning missed calls. Cisco’s Single Number Reach (SNR) will forward all phone calls to wherever they are. Whether the nurse is at their desk or walking around with their mobile phone, the SNR will keep them connected.
