Alertive, the leading Clinical Communications Provider, is pleased to announce the appointment of Glen Williams as its new Chairman.
Existing communication systems create bottlenecks in the patient pathway and don’t provide an effective vehicle for sharing patient-related information. This leads to low levels of staff morale, delays in care pathways and hospitals becoming overwhelmed.
Alertive connects healthcare professionals at the point of care and relevant colleagues with all the information they need to make better decisions to improve patient outcomes. We empower healthcare providers to deliver higher-quality care to patients with more effective, efficient and motivated staff.
"When we started our journey, there was a measure of – ‘it can't be done’. Slowly, together, we are challenging that myth, it can be done, and we have done it! In addition to routine and emergency messaging, we are doing some great things with this digital technology, from documenting attendance at ward rounds to working with improved reporting to analyse workload impact across different roles."
"Burnout is a pivotal part of clinical and non-clinical colleague's working life at the moment, and Alertive has already started transforming somebody's daily work. We know from our laboratories that when they were trying to bleep through to clinicians for results and urgent results, it was taking 54 minutes - it is now down to four minutes."
"The Alertive application has offered our staff with a wider range of options in order to clinically communicate with each other, and this is something that staff have wanted and appreciated. Staff here at The Christie have found benefit in having the different alert types such as 'urgent clinical request' and 'task' to illustrate the urgency of this request. "
"A big problem Alertive has helped solve is patient flow. We thought Alertive would just be communication between doctors and nurses. However, the whole organisation uses Alertive - service managers, admin, and switchboard - everybody's now involved in looking after patients. It's improved patient flow as communication's so much quicker."

Patient flow in healthcare settings is an essential element of providing high-quality care to all patients. It involves the physical journey of a patient from the time they arrive in the emergency department to the point of discharge and is integral to the overall patient experience. Poor patient flow can lead to overcrowding of emergency departments, patients being admitted to wards not suited to their care, and delays in surgical procedures.
