A leading Hematology/Oncology practice in Indiana can now communicate faster and more efficiently with OnPage’ secure, HIPAA compliant application.
Onset Technology, creator of OnPage Mission Critical Messaging and Pager Application for Android, iPhone and Blackberry, announced today that Michiana Hematology Oncology’s Advanced Centers for Cancer Care selected OnPage. Michiana’s physicians and staff are now relying on OnPage for secure, HIPAA-compliant communication using smartphones, therefore eliminating the need to carry additional paging devices. By upgrading to OnPage, not only has paging reliability greatly increased, but Michiana’s staff is always informed as to the status of each message, including automatic notification when a message is received and when it is actually read and responded to.
Michiana Hematology Oncology’s Advanced Centers for Cancer Care represent the largest team of board- certified medical, radiation and gynecological oncologists in northern Indiana. Michiana has distinguished itself by its leadership in medical technology, treatment options, clinical research, and patient care. With locations in Crown Point, Elkhart, Mishawaka, Plymouth/South Bend and Westville, patients receive the most sophisticated and trusted cancer care available in the region. Now with the OnPage Pager Application, Michiana will also make use of the latest communication technology to ensure that their doctors and staff are immediately reachable in emergency situations, and always informed so that they can provide the best possible medical care.
Having used traditional pagers in the past, Michiana saw a continuous deterioration in the reliability of their pagers due to multiple paging towers being decommissioned in their area. After upgrading to OnPage, Michiana receives messages on time, along with a complete audit trail of when the message was sent, when it was delivered, when it was read, and when it was responded to. With OnPage, Michiana is assured of all critical message delivery anywhere in the world having either cell or WiFi coverage.
“The move to OnPage from a traditional paging system allows our practitioners the flexibility of carrying just one device. Their smartphones now act in a dual role as a page and phone by allowing pages to be responed to in a simple, streamlined process,” Said Kim Woofter, COO of Michiana Hematology-Oncology, PC
A Key factor in Michiana’s decision to select OnPage was the ability to consolidate devices. In the past, Michiana’s physicians and staff had to carry around both a phone and a traditional pager to ensure redundancy and to follow up to pages. This proved to be cumbersome. At times it was difficult for the staff to see the call-back numbers on the small pager screens. OnPage enables Michiana to include descriptive information as well as hyperlinks in their messages, making a call back, an email reply or even a URL address, a one click process.
Michiana will also benefit from OnPage’s Web Management Console, a secure, HIPAA-compliant online dispatcher that enables them to manage their communications from a centralized location. The console allows users to manage, track, and audit all of their priority messages via any incoming channel (phone, email, app, or console). It also enables the creation of groups and escalation protocols for different types of emergencies.
“More and more businesses choose OnPage for exactly the same reasons as Michiana. Our unmatched functionality, reliability and price performance prove time after time to be simply unmatched within our industry.” Said Judit Sharon President and CEO of Onset Technology
OnPage converts any iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android device into a secure, fault-tolerant communication system. It guarantees that no messages will ever be missed. OnPage currently supports Apple iOS 5, BlackBerry 7 OS, and Android. For more information about OnPage, visit the OnPage website at http://www.OnPage.com.
