When you think about healthcare, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Usually it’s the obvious: caring for those that are injured or sick. But have you ever thought about the importance of the “behind-the-scenes” element? It’s the job of doctors and nurses to care for patients, but they need to communicate with each other to do so. If someone is being transferred from one hospital to another, the doctors and nurses from each hospital need to communicate with one another, and have the technology to send patient records, files, and other data needed for patient care. Doctors and nurses wouldn’t be able to do their jobs without a communication method. Avaya technology can help to improve communication, as well as patient care within the healthcare industry.
For one, EHR, otherwise known as Electronic Health Records are a major improvement to healthcare technology. Not only is it easy to use, but it’s also accessible, and provides an extensive look at the patient’s medical history and records. By including specific information on these databases, it allows the doctors to leave less room for error, and in doing so, allows for an increase the physical safety and well being of the patient. With the proper detailed information, for example, doctors will be less likely to make mistakes within the prescription given to the patient, or any other issues that could be detrimental to their health. This could also curb the possibility of legality issues brought about by these errors.
Secondly, these Avaya technologies can also help to increase doctor-patient confidentiality. The secrecy of patient records can be a huge concern for the person being treated. For this reason, the Health Insurance and Accountability Act was put into place, which put regulations in place for protecting private health information. Avaya offers a technology called “stealth networking”, which ensures complete protection of the patient’s information while still enabling easy-accessibility among doctors.
Last, Avaya’s healthcare technology also allows for communication between patients and doctors. New ways of communication are being developed such as mobile apps, multichannel communications and telemedicine. All of these are being created to enable convenience, as well as a better patient-doctor relationship and a better healthcare experience.
