Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 07, 2015
BeckonCall, Inc. and the American Medical Professions Association (AMPA) today announce their partnership to incorporate BeckonCall’s suite of secure on-call communication applications into the portfolio of products and services AMPA offers to its members.
Designed specifically for the complex care delivery communications that doctors manage every day, BeckonCall is a mobile app that replaces pagers and live-operator answering services for doctors when they are on call, and automates communication workflows that still rely on handwritten schedules, fax machines and error-prone manually-intensive processes.
“For almost 20 years, AMPA has been committed to finding every possible way to help doctors manage their practices and run their businesses better, more efficiently and most cost effectively,” says Lloyd J. Robinson, Jr., Founder and President of AMPA. “It’s no secret that timely and accurate communications are crucial when doctors are on-call, and the old way of doing things with paper and fax just doesn’t work in this new era of digital healthcare. BeckonCall solves an important communication bottleneck for doctors, and it is a great addition to the portfolio benefits we are able to offer our members.”
BeckonCall automatically routes all incoming communications from patients, hospital-based nursing staff, and practice staff to the right on-call provider based on schedule-driven rules that are fully customizable to meet the specific coverage and care coordination needs of each practice. Doctors receive messages instantly on the secure BeckonCall smartphone app, and can immediately respond or share and collaborate around each case with their colleagues.
“BeckonCall was designed to help doctors communicate and collaborate faster, easier and more accurately during the course of care delivery, and we share AMPA's commitment to help doctors spend less time administrating and more time with their patients,” says Andrew Steele, CEO of BeckonCall. “It’s amazing that in 2015, doctors still rely on operators, pagers, fax machines and handwritten schedules to coordinate care when they’re on-call. BeckonCall brings on-call communications into the smartphone era and helps doctors improve the speed and quality of care for their patients.”
Through the partnership, BeckonCall will be offering its service at a special discounted price to AMPA members. Providers interested in taking advantage of AMPA membership and the special offer from BeckonCall can sign up on the AMPA website at http://www.ampadocs.com/#!on-call-communications/c13kb.
