Verizon One Talk helps a small home-health company keep nurses connected, efficient and focused on care.
One Talk from Verizon can give you an easy way to stay mobile and keep on top of things back at the office. Read this use case to see how One Talk may be able to help your healthcare organization improve efficiency and patient care.
A small home-health company serves its patients by helping them recover at home instead of a hospital. But the company only has 12 nurses on staff and more than 85 home appointments to make each week. So, managing the complex schedule in a way that factored in travel time and still allowed for the caregivers to spend quality time with their patients was difficult. To cut down on wasted time between appointments and allow more time spent with patients, the company needed a way to improve communication with its constantly traveling nursing staff.
The answer was One Talk℠ from Verizon. Everyone on staff, both those working from company headquarters and the nurses working remotely from patients’ homes, had the One Talk business service added to their smartphones and mobile devices. When there is a staffing change, the company can move the One Talk number to the new staff member, who can use it on his or her compatible device of choice within minutes after downloading the One Talk app. When the office manager receives a critical call on the main business number, the supervisor can easily transfer it to the appropriate person,* whether the nurse is in the office or on the go.
With One Talk, the company was able to create better communications between the office and mobile staff. Using the two-way video feature,* nurses were able to show real-time images of patients or equipment from the field, so care decisions could be made more quickly. All this resulted in time saved between patient appointments, more efficient operations and better health outcomes.
*A Verizon One Talk desk phone must be purchased to support this capability. Video calling is only supported on select devices. The One Talk feature must be added to each device. Broadband connection is required for One Talk desk phones.
