As the health sector looks for ways to increase the productivity of its employees without raising costs, health professionals are being empowered by mobile technology to spend more time out in the community and less travelling to and from offices, hospitals and primary care locations. This means they are often working in isolation, away from back-up and during out-of-office hours. It is essential in this context for employees to feel fully supported, safe and confident that help is only seconds away should they ever need it. In turn, employees have a legal obligation to take appropriate measures to protect their staff and failure to do so could have serious consequences.
Vodafone mHealth Solutions offer an effective, simple way to manage the safety of lone or vulnerable employees 24 hours a day through a remotely managed personal alarm system. When the alarm is triggered employees are immediately put in contact with an emergency support service. Operators at the alarm response call centre are specially trained and empowered to take discreet action to help the user without exacerbating the situation.
By registering employee mobile devices in the solution’s portal, the healthcare provider gains 24-hour access to proactive welfare options. These include tracing last known locations, continuous position updates and automated safety checks. Quick to deploy, this extremely cost-effective way of protecting field-based employees is easy and discreet to use.
