- Nurses Week 2021 is May 6th – 12th, 2021
- Nurses are the backbone of patient care coordination
- Technology can and should support nurses so they can collaborate with care teams easily and effectively
As we near the end of Nurses Week 2021, we would like to take the opportunity to pause, reflect and appreciate nurses.
Internally, we are extremely grateful for the many nurses that contribute to our organization. Your direct patient care experience is invaluable, and uniquely positions our solutions to truly understand and solve for real nursing challenges.
Externally, nurses are the backbone of patient care. The past year in particular, nurses have put their own health at risk to care for the health of others. And while that was extremely notable during the COVID-19 pandemic, we also recognize this is a sacrifice nurses (and all clinicians) make every day. So, you could say the National Nurses Week 2021 theme this year of “frontline warriors” is pretty perfect.
The sacrifice of nurses is part of what drives us at Halo Health – we are deeply committed to supporting nurses and all clinicians in their care delivery, particularly around their clinical communication and collaboration. The work of nurses shouldn’t be slowed by outdated, fragmented technology. It shouldn’t be difficult to coordinate with care teams, internally and externally. We aim to solve these problems, and others like it.
Nurses Week 2021: The Unique Role of Nurses in Clinical Collaboration
As our own Ali Morin, MSN, RN-BC, Vice President of Nursing Informatics explains: “Clinical collaboration for nursing is fundamental. The nurse is the hub of the communication wheel in the healthcare system.”
As such, nurses need to be able to access the right person, at the right time, instantly. And, similarly, they need to be able to be reached efficiently and effectively… on the same communication tool as every other member of the care team.
We know silos put patient care at-risk. Silos in communication are no different.
During Nurses Week 2021, we encourage you to hear more from Ali about the unique role of nurses in clinical collaboration:
We’re proud to support nurses in clinical communication and collaboration, and we’re so grateful for the work they do every day.
Happy Nurses Week 2021, nurses! And thank you.
