Every day nurses, doctors and other care team members contend with an influx of information across a range of systems and applications that are often working in siloes. But as hospitals embrace digital transformation, how can technology help improve care team collaboration and bring a higher level of efficiency and productivity?

Communications impacts the efficiency and effectiveness of hospitals and the delivery of services.  A robust communications strategy ensures care teams make better-informed decisions at the right time – contributing to improved patient outcomes, safety and quality of care.

Hear from Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital on their experience of replacing aging communications technology with a clinical communications platform, helping to deliver efficiencies and manage the flow of care by:

  1. communicating with the right person at the right time – even under PPE
  2. Integrating technology to maximise operational and clinical performance
  3. safeguarding patients and staff
  4. quickly and securely share key information enabling care teams to take appropriate action

Join the trust’s chief digital and innovation officer, Dr Saroj Patel with Matt Philips, lead clinical practitioner in the acute intervention team, and Bela Haria, digital services senior project manager, in conversation with Steven Matarelli, senior clinical executive at Vocera, discussing how effective communications contributes to improving patient care, safety, and care team well-being. They will also outline what it takes to be a smart hospital and how digital transformation can help to simplify clinical workflows and safely streamline care.
