Nurses spend up to an hour a day looking for the equipment they need, and waiting for it to become available – time that would be better spent on patient care, or taking much-needed breaks.

Better and more effective communication

Effective communication amongst large frontline teams can often be difficult. Providing everyone with their own mobile device and subscriptions can be costly, whereas letting staff use their own devices creates risk, allows distractions, and fails to ensure that all staff are properly connected to each other. Sense gives your organisation its own secure internal messaging system – to help you and your frontline workers stay in touch.

A safer working environment

A safer working environment for your entire team

Different types of healthcare workers operate within different environments – and providing a safe workspace isn’t always easy. For example, community nurses or care workers often feel disconnected or vulnerable when working alone – while medical workers in your facility are often rushing around between patients, putting them at a higher risk of an accident or a hard fall.

Better time and task management

Staff shortages across the healthcare sector mean frontline workers have very little time to complete and prioritise tasks. Managers are often unable to check all tasks are complete, meaning many become spill-over priorities for the next shift, creating backlogs.

Streamline and simplify processes

Streamline and simplify processes

Patient care is often slowed down due to overly complex processes. Nurses must often wait for other experts or departments to provide booking slots for x-rays, to sign-off on patient release, to send patient transportation, or for ongoing care to be booked. This all tends to involve emails, phone calls, and a reliance on other people in order to complete patient-related tasks.
