Using Secure Messaging to Decrease Wait Times in the ER

ER visits have doubled over the past 10 years. With the average visit now taking between 2-4 hours, it is even more important to have effective clinician-to-clinician communication to get patients seen sooner.

In this whitepaper, we will take you on a journey to see how communicating with secure messaging can improve patient handoffs. After our patient, Joe Smith, is admitted to the ER for a broken leg. we will show you how TigerConnect can help with:

  • Nurse-to-Physician Communication
  • Requesting Consults
  • Receiving Lab Results
  • Coordinating Discharge
  • Keeping Patient's PCP in the Loop
By using TigerConnect as your organization's go-to communication channel, you can decrease wait times, cut readmission rates, reduce consult times, and improve overall patient satisfaction.
