Free Use of Visitor Management and Family Communication Tools to Ease Providers' COVID19 Workload
Prompt.Health is offering the FREE USE of two of its COVID-19 Emergency Response Solutions to Healthcare Organizations.
● Visitor Management – an easy and convenient way for healthcare organizations to manage visitor access to ensure that exposure risk is minimized.
● Family Messaging – a simple and secure way to keep patients' family members and loved ones informed by sending text updates while minimizing the time it traditionally takes care providers to communicate effectively as the solution allows care providers to deliver one message to multiple people, authorized by a patient.
According to John Stehle, Ph.D., CIC, CCHM, and Chief Infection Prevention Consultant at Infinite Leap, "During emergency incidents such as infectious disease outbreaks, it is necessary to strictly monitor visitor access to hospitals to minimize the spread of pathogens. Unfortunately, many healthcare facilities often lack tools to manage the information regarding designated visitors for each patient. This situation can create challenges for access control staff and create frustration for visitors. With our simple-to-use Visitor Management tool, healthcare organizations can make their visitor check-in process more streamlined and facilities safer."
The use of Prompt.Health Family Messaging has been strongly advocated by Mary Jagim, MSN, RN, CEN, FAEN, the CNO at Infinite Leap and past national president of the Emergency Nurse Association (ENA). "When patients' family members can't be at the bedside of their loved ones, it creates feelings of anxiety and distress. By providing clinical staff with a simple tool to provide quick updates on patients via text messages, we can reduce call volume – allowing the care team to focus on the patient – and provide patients with peace of mind knowing their family members are staying informed."
Visitor Management and Family Messaging solutions are part of the Prompt.Health COVID-19 Emergency Response Solutions. These solutions are cloud-based and HIPAA-compliant, enabling healthcare facilities to immediately start using them to the benefit of their staff, patients, and patients' loved-ones.
Visitor Management and Family Messaging are offered at no cost at least until June 30, 2020. The Family Messaging solution includes 10,000 free text messages and is available to use in the United States.
