Clinical Communication and Collaboration: What is it?

The recent “Market Guide for Clinical Communication and Collaboration”, issued by Gartner, defines Clinical Communication and Collaboration systems (CC&C) as those “directed at clinicians to enhance care team effectiveness and the patient experience.”

While there is no universal consensus on the definition of the CC&C market, unquestionably Extension Healthcare is helping to shape this category of Health IT with its cutting-edge solutions deeply rooted in patient event notification management (i.e. alarm and alert management) and event response. (i.e. event-driven text messaging and collaboration).

With its platform and complimentary mobile app designed to intelligently manage patient event notifications by processing multi-variable rules and an innovative mobile app that facilitates secure messaging, caregivers using Extension Engage have instant awareness of patient status changes and quick access to care team members to coordinate intervention.

Extension Engage helps to bridge communication and collaboration gaps among caregivers both inside and outside the hospital. Without a unified approach, caregiver collaboration will continue to be fragmented and patients could end up paying the price.
