Paging and Messaging Enhancements Coming
Communication and messaging are critical components to provide world-class patient care, education and research. Over the years, we have heard concerns regarding the reliability of our paging service. We need greater reliability, usability, and security. Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Stanford Children's Health are working in collaboration to bring forward improvements over the coming months, including: a new two-way, secure, mobile device application; additional features and functionality that will enhance care communication; updated policy and procedures. For more information, contact Christopher Sharp, MD (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Chris Longhurst (email@example.com).
