Patient care improves with seamless collaboration and enhanced communication. Working cohesively with other health professionals involved in patient care, can immediately and positively affect patient safety and outcome. Also, patients are more satisfied with their care when health care professionals collaborate. Indeed, when communication is clear among the team, patients also experience greater clarity about their treatment and expected outcome.
Patients only remembers 60% of information received during the consultation and when they have to transfer information to another health professional, they only provide 50% of what they understood. Obviously this depends on a capacity of each patient, but It’s much safer to share information directly among practitioners.
It also helps to have a communication technology that lets care teams communicate and collaborate seamlessly and securely on the go or at the point of care. Therefore Medicapp includes collaboration features that enable users to record information about patients and share health records and documents easily.
