5 Major Benefits of Smartphone Integration

Integrating smartphones with your nurse call can dramatically increase functionality and improve staff retention and job satisfaction

  1. Enhance coordination among care providers - Provide instant support, feedback and team-building.
  2. Enabling communication at the point of care - Two way communication allows the nurse to remain with patient while requesting additional help, charting, or sending updates to the patient's doctor all of which are shown to improve outcomes
  3. Improves time management - One study found that a nurse was able to save 2.5 hours during a 12 shift by changing over from pagers to smartphones due to the better communication.
  4. Mitigating nurse burnout - Smartphones foster teamwork, reduce physical fatigue, and reduce adverse events that all lead to additional workplace stress. Additionally, allowing nurses more time with patients as shown in #3 leads to higher job satisfaction.
  5. Increase communication stream and device efficiency - Reduce all the devices the nurses must carry - pager, phone, scanner, badge, etc into a single device streamlines communication and documentation of hospital communications, including message receipt, response rate and turnaround time can enhance accountability and even inform operational analytics.
