Clinicians Using Hypercare to Replace Pagers and Improve Scheduling

BY Norm Tollinsky

Clinicians at the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance in southwestern Ontario are surrendering their pagers in favour of a smartphone and web-based messaging and scheduling solution from Toronto-based Hypercare Inc.

“Pagers are old technology and aren’t being fully supported anymore,” said Dr. Tom Haffner, an internal medicine specialist and physician champion for the Hypercare project. “We were running into issues with reception and missing pages frequently because of dead zones in the hospital. Medicine is probably one of the last vestiges of pager use, so it was really out of necessity that we began looking for a new solution.”
