- SUCCESS PROGRAM
Healthcare environments face a unique set of risks from the diverse and often stressed collection of people on site at any given time. Safety officials within a healthcare facility must be prepared to manage this population in a variety of crisis situations, including violence that requires a lockdown, increased patient volumes resulting in elevated staffing requests, and large-scale community disasters.
At healthcare facilities, crisis situations ranging from severe weather, community disasters, violence, and critical system failures. In a place where human life already hangs in the balance, it’s critical that these facilities have reliable emergency communication. In addition to affecting patient care, a slow or ineffective response can also result in regulatory penalties, financial losses, diminished reputation, and civil liability. The manner in which your facility responds to such events can have a profound effect on the outcome—and on you, personally.
Mitigate Your Environmental Exposures
Whether it be severe weather alerts sent to employees or mandated notifications communicated to your surrounding community, the environment is one reason why healthcare facilities implement an emergency notification system and preparedness program. Healthcare facilities are at the core of our communities’ disaster recovery plans and must be prepared. In addition, hospitals and clinics have compliance and regulatory requirements, as well as a general duty to provide a safe working environment. You can automatically initiate Omnimodal Notifications using predefined Scenarios in order to protect the people in your care.
Be Prepared for Violence
Although you can’t always predict or prevent threats and violent acts made by employees, visitors, patients, or strangers on your facility property, you can plan to limit the impact. By sending Omnimodal Notifications in a timely manner, along with the associated procedures, you can be better prepared and limit the potential impact of violence.
Resolve Infrastructure Outages & Interruptions
Power and network outages and technical failures can all hinder hospital operations. When it comes to mission-critical systems, downtime can impact patient care. You can resolve these threats to your infrastructure more quickly by automatically connecting your systems to your emergency notification initiatives. Your team will gain valuable time by being alerted immediately when your systems go amiss.
When the unexpected happens and every second counts, you need to ensure alerts are received by as many members of your community as possible. In order to maximize your reach, every avenue of communication needs to be pursued: text alerts, emails, digital signage, loudspeakers, and more. The ability to send an emergency notification to not just many endpoints (as multimodal would suggest), but to every endpoint, instantaneously and simultaneously, is an advantage we call Omnimodal.

With Scenarios, you can automate any series of actions to initiate your Omnimodal emergency communication and response. It allows you to activate and assemble your team within seconds—while providing them with documented procedures to follow. Scenarios allows you to capture your team’s response plans in a sequence of predefined actions to be initiated in one step; in a single click, through the web or from mobile devices. Learn more
AutomationOmnilert can easily connect to other autonomously monitored systems in order to optimize your emergency communication. Whether it be integrating notifications from infrastructure intrusions, severe weather, or other safety-related conditions, Omnilert can tie it all together for you by automatically triggering a predefined series of actions. Automation eliminates the additional time required to take action during a critical incident, which reduces errors and vulnerability. Learn more
