It is probably safe to say that most everyone has experienced the stress of sitting in a waiting room at a hospital or surgery center while a loved one is in for a surgical procedure. There are typically family members huddled together in their own little seating areas where they have set up camp. Everyone sits and waits on pins and needles. Anytime someone in scrubs walks in the room the automatic instinct is to jump up and see if there is any news on the family member.
Usually after a good amount of time has passed, someone from the group goes on a food run since everyone is afraid to leave the room thinking that they might miss that window of opportunity to get an update. Also, the family members who were not able to be at the hospital that day are calling and texting those who are waiting for minute by minute updates which may not be available. Finally, there is a way of Improving Hospital to Patient Satisfaction.
EASE Applications was created to improve the overall patient experience and engagement through communication. This is a way to securely update families from the time a patient leaves their sight from pre-op well into surgery, on to the medical floor. By using the application and scanning the patient’s bar-coded wristband, one can receive HIPAA compliant texts, photos, and videos. This has shown to reduce anxiety for all involved and make for better Doctor to Patient Satisfaction as well as Nurse to Patient Satisfaction. It’s like having a window into the operating room in to stay connected to a loved one.
