Revolutionize Clinical Communication

Revolutionize Clinical Communication

Quality patient care starts with revolutionizing clinical communication, especially as regulations evolve to keep up with the exponential advancement of digital communication to keep patient privacy safe, which is even more crucial than ever. According to the summary statement from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on February 8, 2024, "Texting patient information and the texting of patient orders among members of the health care team is permissible, if accomplished through a HIPAA-compliant secure texting platform (STP) and in compliance with the Conditions of Participation (CoPs)." The policy update announces the need for healthcare organizations to tighten security around data transferring from texting platforms to EHR. 


The time to transition from pagers to a secure messaging platform is even more necessary for the safety of patients and seamless operations. Amtelco offers a secure messaging solution, allowing healthcare providers to connect anywhere at the right time with optimal speed, aiming to provide precision and role-based group collaboration through a messaging application that provides a high level of security for user communication. Amtelco provides marvelous implementation and training services to help integrate miSecureMessages into your system. Fewer hiccups happen when data breaches are kept at bay when healthcare organizations use miSecureMessages. The best time to start is now; healthcare providers can rely on the robust security feature miSecureMessages offers!


Instead of relying on one-way pagers, today's technological advancements offer modern two-way secure messaging platforms that alleviate clinical communication pain points such as communication barriers, potential data breaches, information overload, fragmentation of communication, time constraints, and more! A study, "Improving Communication in a Large Urban Academic Safety Net Hospital System: Implementation of Secure Messaging," by Suvrat Chandra et al., highlights the efficiencies a secure messaging platform can provide, such as alleviating transmission errors and promoting closed-loop communication. 


To advance health outcomes, many healthcare providers use smartphones as a fast way to connect; however, the messaging applications may or may not be HIPAA-compliant, "Figures indicate that 85% of healthcare staff have access to smartphones, and about 60–80% of this clinical staff use text messages to discuss patient care [2]." (Chandra et al., p. 56). With many healthcare providers using smartphones, overlooking clinical messaging security is dangerous, leading to interruptions in operations and significant monetary loss in retrieving health data. 


The Importance of Effective Clinical Communication

Clinical communication encompasses a wide range of interactions within healthcare settings, such as exchanges between healthcare professionals, sharing patient information, coordinating care plans, and more! In each scenario, transparent and timely communication is paramount for delivering high-quality care and ensuring patient safety.


Traditional modes of communication, such as pagers, phone calls, faxing, and emails, often need more efficient, cohesive clinical communication and more security measures to protect sensitive patient information. These limitations can lead to communication breakdowns and misunderstandings, compromising patient outcomes and clinical operations. Chandra imparts an eye-opening study conducted by researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC), "Results indicated a median daily potential communication failure rate reduction from 5.5 to 2.2% with the addition of secure messaging to the existing electronic paging system, a 59% decrease in potential paging communication failures as measured through manual review of messaging data capturing broken communication loops" (Chandra et al., p. 56). From a statistical viewpoint, a healthcare organization will significantly benefit from using a secure messaging application. Reducing communication errors, faster connections, and saving lives! Healthcare providers work in an intense working environment that relies on precision and accuracy; therefore, speed and clarity within clinical communication are much more crucial!
