Calling in staff members during high pressure or emergency situations can be difficult to manage manually. Health facilities are looking for a quicker and more advanced method of getting staff members in, that doesn’t add any additional time-consuming steps. Automation is the perfect solution for this problem, as it can take control of the communication and help administrators avoid sending out several recall messages. Having the right team members on the site when handling patient’s issues is a crucial element of healthcare but can quickly become stressful in such a fast-paced environment. SimplyCast wants to make this an easy option for calling in resources and getting everyone on the same page without any additional stress-inducing tasks.
Hospitals have a lot on their plates already, which is why the automated Hospital Resource Mobilization aims to make day to day routines easier for everyone. This solution incorporates digital tools such as the ability to quickly launch emergency communications, using multiple channels to call in staff during an influx, and the ability to prioritize contacting staff who are on call. All of these factors save time for staff and ensure that the optimal members are responding to the situation. There are 4 simple steps for administrators and staff members to follow, which we have outlined in detail for you in this blog.
Who Handles What?
By utilizing the emergency communication tools that are available, medical institutions can prioritize who receives calls to come in during emergencies or influxes. This is a great alternative to manually reaching out to staff members, as time is often valuable in these situations and can be better spent tending to the patients. SimplyCast developed this automated solution to help solve the organizational issues that arise when handling patients and ensuring they get the right medical attention for their needs. This system helps categorize staff and resources efficiently, calls in the appropriate staff members automatically, and prioritizes on-call staff over other options. The administration members and other staff have 4 simple steps to follow to ensure this system runs smoothly and according to plan.
Step 1- Administrators
To make things much simpler, the administrator can start by uploading a list of the staff and integrating their schedules into the system to know who is on-call. This will allow the system to automatically contact those staff members first. They can also create an emergency response plan that can be used if needed.
Step 2- Administrators
Since this information has already been entered into the system, whenever an influx of patients occurs and additional staff are needed, the administration can launch a recall and have everyone contacted automatically.
Step 3- Staff
Whenever additional nurses are needed, they will be reached out to using one of the available contact methods (email, text message, phone call), and can respond confirming their availability.
Step 4- Administrators
As the responses come in, the administrator can track how many staff members are still needed and take the appropriate action.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create a digital solution for hospital resource mobilization, and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using automated technology to help health facilities operate smoothly.
