Benefits of an Alert Management System During a Medical Emergency

Effective emergency notification alerts are critical in the world of healthcare. It is vital for medical professionals to have an alert notification system that is reliable and able to reach all members of a care team immediately. HipLink is a mobile communication software system that is used at many large hospital centers. The alert management system integrated within the software makes medical communication on a large scale manageable, while improving the organization’s overall communication strategy. The HipLink alert management system is relied on during medical emergencies.

Improved Response Time in the Hospital

During a medical emergency, every second matters. Wasting time with slow, inefficient communication can be a matter of life or death. During these emergencies, trauma teams use HipLink to communicate critical information. At the scene, the ambulance team can quickly communicate their assessment of the situation. Templates are built into the communication software, so the first responders do not have to spend time typing out a detailed message. The alert notification will then be sent to all members of the trauma team. Once the patient reaches the hospital, the nurses and doctors on call will already be informed about the emergency and have a plan of action. The quick response time helps increase a patient’s chance of survival. The alert notification can also be sent to all types of devices including any smartphone, standard cell phones, IP phones, pagers, or to voice mails via text to speech. HipLink works on Wi-Fi and cellular networks which further improves response time ensuring that there will not be gaps in service.

Improved Response Time Outside of the Hospital

Outside of the hospital, HipLink is effective at improving response time to emergencies in nursing homes. HipLink allows the organization to integrate with patient alarm systems and emergency exit doors. In case of an emergency, the patient pulls an alarm, and all caregivers get an alert. The closest nurse can respond, letting the others know they are responding. If an emergency exit door is open, the caregivers are alerted, so they can investigate quickly. 

Coordination Between Care Team Members

In addition to improved response time, HipLink allows for seamless coordination between all members of a patient care team. Through the HipLink Software, information such as patient updates can be sent during an emergency to all professionals on the team. To ensure message delivery, escalation alerts can be created, giving each designated staff member the alerts that they need to respond to. This coordination can occur at all different levels and be used by a variety of different medical professionals including physicians, nurses, EMTs, or members of a trauma team. All communication is encrypted and HIPAA compliant. 

Communication is key to resolving any medical emergency. The alert notification system in the HipLink Software helps to improve response time and coordination between patient care team members. HipLink is easy to use, extremely reliable, and can be integrated into legacy hospital communication systems and software. Contact HipLink today to learn more about why our mobile app is called the “Easy Button.”

Modernizing Communication to Improve Efficiency

Tooele County was quickly emerging as a profitable and attractive destination for those businesses that were looking to find a growing base of customers. According to reports, Tooele County had also seen a major increase in job growth. Moreover, Tooele County is home to a number of tourist attractions. Tooele County in Utah is only about a thirty minute commute by car from Salt Lake City, making it an ex-urban community that continues to grow in popularity with new families and residents.

 

 

Modernizing Emergency Services

 

Due to infrastructure growth, jobs, and population, Tooele County has had to change its’ emergency services to meet the growing demand. In order to modernize the communication and improve the efficiency of the emergency services units of Tooele County, the county adapted the Spillman CAD (Computer-Aided Dispatch) system. This system uses wireless communications in accordance with a partnership through HipLink’s software.

 

By combining the Spillman CAD and HipLink software, the first responders of Tooele County are able to send and receive automated messages. Both the inbound and outbound messages have real-time updates when responding to either an emergency or a crisis in the county. Text messages are delivered automatically by HipLink’s messaging software and the cell phones and receivers of first responders are connected to agency personnel. Luckily, the men and women of Tooele County emergency services no longer have to wait five minutes or ten minutes for these messages to come through. They will be kept frequently up to date in case they are needed in the county.

 

 

The Benefits of HipLink

 

Because of HipLink’s easy functionality, a registered user of the system can easily access needed tools. For instance, the user could simply log-in, type up a message, select which group(s) of emergency personnel should receive the message, and then hit ‘send’ to relay the message. This simplification saves time and money. Tooele County saves money in their budget by eliminating the need to buy radio pagers to stay in touch with other emergency services personnel.

 

HipLink’s software allows any and all emergency personnel to receive text message updates and alerts directly to their personal cell phone or smartphone device. If first responders have a question about any text message(s), they can reply directly to the sender of the message(s) and ask for clarification if they have any questions or concerns. Instead of worrying about a lack of radio pagers or their poor functionality, HipLink fills in the gap and helps the emergency services of Tooele County get the job done.
