In this session, attendees will learn how NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital modernized its clinical collaboration and communication strategy with an enterprise wide mobile platform. The organization moved its clinicians and staff to a smartphone platform, reducing pager and phone use, and streamlining workflows, resulting in better patient care and greater efficiency.

NewYork-Presbyterian now has more than 11,000 active users on the platform - with continued demand from its network hospitals and departments to be on-boarded. Adoption and usage data, which is track monthly, is steady and growing, confirming the benefits of the system.

  • How to identify the best platform to meet your organization’s needs and leverage existing technology investments.  
  • Strategies for getting users on-boarded, trained, and excited to move to mobile.
