We’ve all heard the expression: time is money, and when it comes to workforce productivity that couldn’t be closer to the truth. One way to increase that productivity is through the utilization of an Intranet. Here are 5 ways an Intranet can help save you time and money.Read More >
Your employees want to be able to share and access information as easily and pain-free as possible, as well as stay connected with colleagues. A successful Intranet is the heart of your healthcare organization, and the number one resource for your employees. It’s clean, intuitive, up-to-date, and a place your employees will go to over-and-over again to stay on top of everything they need. From sharing team updates, to working on cross-functional projects to doing day-to-day work, the Intranet is a key tool in creating a successful and transparent culture.Read More >
While having your cake and letting your healthcare employees eat it too, is great for office birthday parties – it’s not an effective engagement strategy. Cake doesn’t make people want to work harder or longer. It doesn’t magically make a micro-manager go away, even if she does allow someone else to divvy up the pieces, and it won’t make employees feel heard, understood, and respected. It’s cake. It’s fluffy and delicious, and even comes with frosting - but it’s not a magical cure-all.Read More >
1) Need better/more efficient communication with staff
In most organizations, email is the primary way staff members communicate. One of the problems with this is that email can sometimes be unreliable with messages being automatically filed. There’s also the issue of people not reading their emails, whether that’s because of negligence or due to the sender not copying the correct individuals on the message. Your Intranet Portal can offer a cleaner, more cohesive, way to display information, messages, events, etc. Most of this communication can be displayed right on the homepage which can be set as the default homepage of your staff’s computer. For many of our clients, the home page acts as the centralized place to find all hospital-wide information. With the HospitalPORTAL system, you can place staff in groups and assign those groups to different types of communications so you can minimize possible chances for error in distributing important information.Read More >
Managing policies and procedures in hospitals is a huge task. We often see small critical access hospitals that have upwards of 1,000 hospital-wide policies in circulation. And the number only increases with the size of an organization. If you take this number and multiply it by the number of departments or individuals that both write and are required to review and have access to the final versions of the documents, the task of keeping it all organized is quite daunting. Therefore it is not surprising the first thing hospital administrators are looking for in a policy management system is the ability to manage the review process and provide easy access to current versions of policies to the staff. A feature that is often overlooked is a solid revision tracking and archival engine.
Perhaps one of the most overlooked areas in terms of overall budget and organizational savings is printing and paper products. How many thousands of papers, emails, documents and files get printed out on a daily basis within your hospital or healthcare system…How much is spent on something as basic as ink and toner…While many simply consider these necessary and thus somehow negligible expenses, they can definitely start to add up. An Intranet with a solid document management system replaces the cumulative costs associated with printing, distributing, maintaining and storing of hard copy documents.Read More >
The link between collaboration and productivity is unquestionable and an increasing number of hospitals and healthcare organizations are looking for ways to enhance collaboration in the workplace. One of the ways they have found to accomplish this goal is by using an Intranet. Intranets have evolved well beyond their original, more cumbersome design and functionality in past years. Today’s modern-day Intranets boast many different features and elements that are conducive to encouraging an increased amount of collaboration in a healthcare setting.Read More >
