What ends up happening is that you most likely will look at the data once the day is “over” or later in the week or when you are asked to create reports for your weekly or monthly meetings.
Relying on a dashboard and nothing else, could mean that you will miss out on real-time situations that will be occurring while you look at the dashboard instead of carrying out your responsibilities.
Well, as with other Apps, we are seeing that technology can make your life much easier by providing you with immediate notifications on your iPhone or iPad so that you can react without ever having to look at a dashboard.
For example, can you imagine being informed of a user that has just checked into the ER with Head Trauma? Or how about being informed when an order has been placed for a Nuclear Medicine study thus allowing you to pre-order your radioisotope and save on rush charges? Or getting a notification that a last-minute MRI was ordered right before the end of your shift, thus allowing you to better manage that patient that really needs your service?
These are not just imaginary situations, these are notifications that we are already sending to dozens of devices in our customer sites. Just like I can’t travel without my notifications, neither can our customers live without theirs.
