Benefits

Whether hospital, clinic or physician group practice, dependable and efficient communication is no longer a luxury; it is a necessity. Traditional paging practices are inefficient and labor-intensive. Valuable time is wasted deciding who is on call, determining the best method of contact, and then wondering if the page actually reached the intended clinician. In the past, this was a tolerable annoyance; today it is unacceptable.
