How do you stay on top of your alarms? You get the information that you need and filter out anything unnecessary. A good alarm management system will help you do just that. It will give the information that you need, as you need it.

HipLink Software has a configuration specializing in alarm notification that can be integrated with countless systems and applications. As a result, you can get notifications about fire alarms, medical emergencies, entry violations, environmental monitors, and so much more. Ready to learn more? Here’s what you should know about automated alarm management.

 

Details Matter - And You Can Have More Than You Think

In case of an emergency, the right people need to know and how to respond. Even in a non-emergency, some events require fast human action. In either of those cases, automated alarm management can reduce stress. When an emergency or a response-demanding event occurs, your automated alarm system can give all of the relevant party’s information on what’s happening and how to respond. Even better, you can set predetermined rules that will trigger different messages. This way, your teams can take specific action right away.

 

Streamlining Means More Responsive Action – Reduced Alarm Fatigue!

How do you respond when you hear a car alarm in the distance? If you’re like most people, you probably don’t do anything. That’s because car alarms go off all the time. They usually don’t mean anything. As humans, when we hear a certain sound enough times, we filter that sound out of our minds. Automated alarm management can prevent the same thing from happening to your critical communications. HipLink’s Alarm Notification Gateway can streamline and target your notifications, sending the most relevant information only to the most pertinent people necessary. As a result, your teams won’t get bombarded with messages that they don’t need. When they receive an alert, they’ll know it’s their time to act, and they’ll act fast.

 

You Can Have Alarm Escalation  

With HipLink’s Alarm Notification Gateway, alarms can be escalated when needed. This means you can have a confirmed response to your alarms when urgent by requiring a user to respond in a specified amount of time, or the alarm is escalated to another person or to a supervisor. This way, your alarms don’t ever go unheeded.

EMTs arrive on the scene as the first line of medical help. Within moments, they have to assess the situation, administer correct care, and help transport the patient to the Emergency Room.

Benefits of HIPAA Compliant Mobile Chat

 

HIPAA compliance sets the standard for protection of patient health information ensuring security standards are followed. Provisions for patient privacy and security are necessary in all steps of patient care. Hospitals must balance the need for HIPAA compliance with a requirement for continuous communication between clinicians which can be time-consuming and frustrating. Whether it is between a physician and a nurse or an EMT and an emergency room trauma team, it is crucial that communication be not only immediate, but also secure. With HipLink Mobile, you can send HIPAA compliant text messages to all medical personnel. It dramatically improves the speed and security of communication. Here are some benefits of HipLink Mobile’s HIPAA compliant chat application.

Secure Messaging

Medical clinicians and personnel must be extremely cautious with sharing unsecure patient information even with their coworkers. HipLink Mobile allows providers to send HIPAA compliant text messages with full protection of any PHI. All messages are encrypted at the highest level for full HIPAA compliance while allowing for open communication between users.

HipLink Mobile’s text messaging app uses the highest level of data encryption security both in transit and at rest. The “single session” handshake process in the encryption means the key is constantly changing. This short "time to live" makes cracking the encryption almost impossible. Doctors, nurses, EMTs, and other medical personnel can rest assured that the data they are sending is secure. Thus, HipLink Mobile’s text messages can be used to send ePHI that can include patient identifiers, diagnosis, and history as well as current status without any worry of HIPAA violations. Any attachments sent over HipLink Mobile are also encrypted.  

Easy to Use

Not only is the HipLink Mobile App text messaging feature protected and secure, but it is also simple to use. It works on both Wi-Fi and cellular networks to ensure no gaps in service. Personnel can easily respond to messages via a one-click message response feature. Distinct alert tones make it easy to know when a message is received. Group messages are also simple to send and allow all members of a care team to receive the necessary information with features for automatic escalation.

Remote Device Management

An added safety feature and benefit of HipLink secure messaging is the remote device management capabilities of the application. This allows an administrator to do things like enforce general policy, disable access, or delete data. This feature further increases HIPAA compliance and patient security.

HipLink Mobile’s secure messaging app provides medical professionals with a secure way to integrate HIPAA compliant text messages into their communication system and workflow. Improvements are quickly noticed with the speed and reliability of communication.
