Never pick up the phone to order a consult again! In many facilities, the process of dispatching orders for doctor consultations forces nurses or other staff to make one (or more) phone calls per order.
Although this may sound trivial, it often involves lengthy hold times, callbacks, and other delays. Tracking, escalation, and reporting of consult orders is usually difficult or impossible. Missed or delayed consults increase length of patient stays, increasing operating cost significantly.
Secure mobile communiction provides doctors with a convenient and HIPAA-compliant method of communication. Hospital staff can see the status of all orders on their patients by unit, and use this information in real-time to coordinate care with doctors.

This case study of a large hospital network using Consult ManagerTM illustrates these points and provides specific dollar figures.
