Webinar: Clinical communication and collaboration technology: Considerations for nurse leaders


Clinical communication and collaboration (CC&C) technology coordinates care team activities, improving the efficiency of care delivery and enhancing the patient’s experience.

As the primary caregivers and hubs of care coordination, nurses make up the greatest percentage of patient-care technology users, so it’s imperative that nurse leaders are involved throughout the selection, implementation and sustained utilization of a CC&C solution.

Watch this webinar to learn strategies for incorporating nurse leaders into the implementation of a CC&C solution to provide superior communication tools for nurses.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

  • Define the role of the nurse leader in the selection of a CC&C solution
  • Avoid common pitfalls in selecting, implementing and maintaining CC&C technology
  • Boost end-user adoption and attain desired outcomes throughout this initiative
