Aspirus Simplifies Operating Room Paging with InformaCast Notification System
Aspirus Healthcare serves 60,000 people in central Wisconsin and northern Michigan through eight hospitals and more than 40 clinics.
Aspirus Healthcare was renovating its operating rooms and did not have a plan for incorporating its intercoms for overhead paging. It was also facing obstacles from its legacy paging system, which needed to be replaced. The facility needed a simple notification system for communicating with medical staff while not sharing sensitive pages with patient families.
Aspirus turned to its existing Cisco phones to enable InformaCast notification and alert software for pre-recorded paging. This provided a cost effective means to establish standardized paging procedures throughout the hospital, and designated zones so certain pages are only heard in specific areas.
