A Director of Trauma Services shared in our Team Communication Leads to Decreased Treatment Times case study, “It was very clear, the use[r] ability was better. I can use it as a pager, I can get it as a text, I can get it to my phone. And it included answering the EMS radio, sending it out and recording the calls. There is not another item on the market, at least that I found in my search that does that." This study showcases how improved communication within hospital teams directly translates to reduced treatment times, ultimately benefiting patients and improving ROI.
