Collaboration Case Study: Evergreen Hospital

Increasing Efficiency of Mobile Clinicians


Increase productivity and efficiency for mobile clinicians and improve patient experience with a 24-hour nurse line.


Cisco Unified Communications Manager and wireless phones, integrated with nurse-call and clinical systems, WebEx, and TelePresence.


  • Increased time available to home nurses for patient care
  • Optimized nurse-line staffing to provide an excellent patient experience
  • Halved operational costs of voice system, saving US$500,000 annually

Home-nursing teams meet regularly to discuss procedures, and with WebEx they can now meet from the field instead of taking time away from patient care to drive to the office.
