Poor communication contributes to 80% of medical errors (the 3rd leading cause of death), ⅓ of all malpractice suits, poor outcomes and redundant costs. Unfortunately, these miscommunications are abundant because our care teams are stuck in communication silos. 

That's why we need to unify ALL systems of care for ALL time sensitive emergencies with regional communication networks that connect ALL members of the care team -- from prehospital providers to interfacility teams to those at other hospitals outside of our own.

This webinar is well suited for providers and hospital executives who would like to learn:

  • How to identify the key gaps in communication and why they persist despite today's "solutions."
  • The importance of uniting all time sensitive emergency workflows and systems of care
  • What a true regional system of communication looks like and how it facilitates the provision of value based healthcare.
  • What hospital executives can do to help their teams provide better patient care, improve job satisfaction for providers, and increase revenue while decreasing costs.
