Enhancing Communication with RapidConnect

To improve communication among providers, WakeMed has invested in the development of a mobile, web-based application called RapidConnect.  This application – developed by physicians – has been piloted with our pediatrics team and will be implemented to all Medical Staff members and clinical staff between now and October 1 in three phases. It is our goal that RapidConnect will decrease our reliance on SmartWeb and WakeMed P2P, and will greatly enhance the ability for physicians to communicate with one another to improve patient care.  Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks – for an outline of the timeline and phases of the rollout, click here.
