Not-for-profit adopts notification solution to deliver important messages to staff throughout the hospital.
SAN DIEGO (December 2, 2014)—MIR3, Inc., the innovator of real-time Intelligent Notification (IN™) and response technology, today announced that Lenoir Memorial Hospital, a not-for-profit healthcare facility in Kinston, North Carolina, has adopted Intelligent Notification as its notification system throughout the organization.
Nestled in the heart of Lenoir County, Lenoir Memorial’s mission is to ensure exceptional healthcare for the people it serves. To do that, hospital administrators need a way to communicate quickly and reliably with staff and providers throughout the 261-bed facility. Since not all employees use email and hospital workers are more likely to be working on the floor rather than by a phone or computer, the hospital was seeking a way to reach people no matter where they were located. Using the Essentials edition, important messages can be reliably delivered in case of disease exposure, insurance enrollment dates, severe weather and other interruptions. Alerts can be targeted to specific staff or to all, and are delivered via email, phone, SMS and more.
“We plan to use Intelligent Notification when announcing matters of hospital-wide importance. For example, we can notify all employees of upcoming open enrollment dates, announce the launch of our Employee Engagement Survey, notify staff of weather events and parking lot closures,” says Jimmy Person, HR Director for Lenoir Memorial Hospital. “Our public safety team can use Essentials to alert employees about a dangerous situation, like an active shooter or hospital-wide disaster that requires rapid and coordinated response.”
“Lenoir Hospital is taking the wider view of service to their community,” says Ann Pickren, COO for MIR3. “By enabling close communication with staff and providers they ultimately stand to improve the health and safety of everyone in the hospital, including patients and their families.”
Intelligent Notification is used by organizations seeking a streamlined way to deliver urgent notifications to employees, partners, vendors, customers and shareholders. It’s employed by the military to mobilize and recall troops, law enforcement to direct officers, cities to alert citizens in times of threat or evacuation, and by universities to alert parents, students and staff about school closings and emergencies.
MIR3, Inc. is the leading developer of Intelligent Notification and response software, which helps organizations and companies enhance communication, protect assets, and increase operational efficiency. MIR3 technology provides a common communication platform that enables advanced rapid, two-way communication for IT, business continuity, and enterprise operations for many of the Global Fortune 100 companies, as well as government entities, universities and companies of all sizes in more than 130 countries.
