Reaching frontline employees in healthcare is critical. But not always easy. Because nurses, physicians, other clinical staff, and non-clinical staff are all deskless employees, they don’t have access to the same tools, channels, and information that deskbound or office employees do. This poses a major challenge for healthcare communications. We need better tools and technology to keep up with the rapidly changing expectations of the deskless workforce.
What is Healthcare Communication?
Healthcare communications are the strategic messages and campaigns that a healthcare company uses to communicate with their employees.
This isn’t to be confused with patient-facing health communication, which is the communication with patients about their health and how to make healthcare-related decisions.
This guide is all about communicating with healthcare employees and helping them do their critical roles.
