Hospital communication options promote physician responsiveness at Duncan Regional

The hospital replaced all the pagers in use by physicians, providing physicians with a hospital communication system that better serves the doctors themselves, hospital staff and patients.

Using LiveProcess allowed Duncan Regional to offer physicians multiple choices in how they could be contacted, including mobile phones, landlines, email or all of the above.

“With its programmed messaging, response and tracking capabilities, LiveProcess put process around communication and created more structure around how we respond to clinical events.”

-Michael Turner, PBX supervisor

More reliable than pagers, and quicker

Methodist Health System’s four hospitals began replacing pagers and overhead announcements with mobile alerting tools most staff were already carrying: their phones and other mobile devices.

For example, when EMS picks up a trauma case for Methodist Mansfield Medical Center, they call a dedicated emergency line in the ED, providing basic information about the incoming trauma case. The operator sends a notification with mostly pre-populated fields with details of the specific activation. The notification is sent to a pre-programmed group of recipients across the hospital, such as trauma surgeons, blood bank, clinical leaders, and radiology.

“Mansfield’s trauma notification has been great. It is more
reliable than the pagers, and quicker.”

– Wes Dunham, director of emergency management
