OnPage Provides Secure, Rapid Response at New England’s Largest Catholic Hospital
Date:7/3/2012

Waltham, MA (PRWEB) July 03, 2012

One of the most important pieces of medical technology in any hospital today isn’t the heart-lung machine, the respirator, or the X-ray machine. Believe it or not, it’s the pager, a technology that first caught on in the 1980s. Even in the 21st century, it’s still relied on by hospital staff to summon doctors in both emergency and nonemergency situations. But at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, the largest Catholic hospital in New England, the cost of using this dated technology became prohibitive.

To improve communications, accountability, and reliability the Hospital is aggressively replacing its traditional pagers with Onset Technology’s mobile app, OnPage. OnPage converts any iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android device into a secure assured communications system.

“With OnPage, our hospital and its call center have received highest level of reliability. I have not had one issue with operators sending messages, or physicians and other staff receiving them” Says Dave Cote Manager of Telecom & Network Engineering. “OnPage gives us the same features that we depended on with our traditional pagers, but does so much more. OnPage adds functionality to the pager with its delivery confirmation notifications, security with its SSL encryptions, and all at a price that is the same as a traditional pager, minus the expensive monthly fee.”

Now, doctors at Saint Francis don’t have to carry multiple devices, and the hospital doesn’t have to assume the messages were received – they know! Doctors only need to carry their smartphones and are guaranteed to receive messages immediately after they are sent, and hospitals know exactly if the message was delivered and read. Moreover, those messages are encrypted to ensure HIPAA compliance.

OnPage currently supports Apple iOS 5, BlackBerry 7 OS, and Android. For more information about OnPage, visit the OnPage website at http://www.OnPage.com. The OnPage blog at http://www.onpage/blog/blog
