Connecting care teams for better patient outcomes
Too often, providers face the challenge of managing constant streams of patient information, which may or may not reach all members of a patient’s care team in a timely manner. Communication still relies on outdated technologies, such as pagers, white boards, and handwritten notes, and information may not reach all members of a patient’s care team and could delay treatment or time to discharge. In addition, studies have shown that poor communication is the leading cause of medical errors.
Care Thread provides secure mobile messaging and team-based collaboration solutions that empower providers to deliver more efficient patient care, improve patient outcomes, and shorten time to discharge. At Care Thread, we believe that when providers have real-time access to patient information and the ability to actively collaborate with their care team, patients have better outcomes.
