Keeping employees informed in the healthcare sector is critical. Not only do they need to keep pace with emergencies and incidents, disease outbreaks, health risks, and developments in healthcare, they also need to keep up-to-date with various state and federal regulations that apply to healthcare, new
The healthcare workforce poses unique challenges for communicators with staff often working different shifts, across many disciplines and campuses. There are also non-technical, non-medical staff who provide support to health professionals.
Keeping everyone informed in this environment can be a headache especially given the importance of the information you need to share. But doesn’t have to be complex, if you have the right tool for the job.
Send urgent notifications to your healthcare workforce, even if computers are on screensaver mode or standby.
Send alerts that align with your hospital’s color code system to determine the type and seriousness of the event.
Send reminders to your team about upcoming events or other important information.
Set the time and date so that your DeskAlerts notifications will show on employees’ screens at a later time.
Create emergency notification templates to save time and use them again in the future.
Target messages to all staff, or just groups of staff, depending on the situation.
“For us the most valuable features of DeskAlerts are its integration with Active Directory, the ability to limit a message’s lifetime, message templates, delivery statistics and the ease of translation into other languages”
“DeskAlerts is easy to use, and the speed at which messages are delivered is fast. The system was easy to configure via Active Directory groups and organizational units.”
DeskAlerts can send important information to every desktop in your organization and is successfully used by many hospitals around the world to keep their employees informed. Messages can be color coded for the kinds of emergency situations hospitals have. Other information can be scheduled to be sent at different times of the day to capture every shift.
