A primary communications challenge for healthcare organisations is how to establish an effective clinical telephony and video strategy without creating silos. Choosing the right technology whilst bridging the divide between different vendors and ensuring that departments and units don’t become disconnected as a result. How to move to cloud at a pace that suits your organisation, staff and patients to more efficiently consume technology. Improving patient engagement without introducing risk. Ultimately the end goal is always the same: communications that just works wherever your people are and whatever device they are using.
