Hospital communications used to be a lot simpler. If you needed to find a doctor, you could dial 0 and the operators would connect you or send a page on your behalf. People communicated through paper charts, wrote key phone numbers on grease boards, and kept on-call schedules in binders. Some of this still happens today, but communications across healthcare have become progressively more convoluted. The use of diverse mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, pagers, Wi-Fi phones, etc.), and the rise in care complexity necessitating care team coordination mean more sophisticated communication technology is required.
