Professional Communication in Healthcare Setting
We are lucky enough to live in a period where we can access virtually any information on
the internet and speak with anybody conveniently with a type of gadget. Information Technology
(IT) has influenced clinical practice, correspondence, organizational structures, shoppers, labor
force issues, workforce issues, costs and reimbursement, quality care issues and outcomes, and
ethical and legal concerns (Finkelman 2020). So, there are numerous benefits of utilizing an
organization device versus a personal device for professional correspondence. If everybody at an
organization is given a similar telephone with similar applications while accessing patient data
and the internet, fewer errors could be made. Firewalls and cybersecurity measures can be
implemented easily to protect patient information and hospital data from potential breaches and
theft. It is also easy to restrict access to company devices to authorized medical personnel. This
can be used to effectively control sensitive and confidential patient information getting into the
wrong hands. The company devices can easily be monitored and controlled to protect patient
data. The use of unsecured personal devices places a risk of a data leak. Company devices can be
locked from personal data ensuring that only work-related tasks are perfume and less distraction
mostly experienced when personal devices are used
The one genuine demerit to utilizing organization devices for correspondence is cost.
The initial expense for buying the gadgets for every one of the employees, the long periods of
training on how to use the gadget, and the maintenance of every gadget will be a generally large
cost for any establishment, particularly one with many workers. Also, some company devices are
shared and may inconvenience the health worker when a colleague uses the device. The fast
growth in technology renders high-tech devices obsolete after a while. This may prompt the
hospital to replace their devices over time which is a huge expense. (Brief HIPPA, 2018)

A clinic or establishment should ask themselves if the advantages of saving the cost of
purchasing devices at the very least exceed the potential consequences of security breaches. If
patient information is leaked in an undesired event, the hospital may be subjected to lawsuits and
hefty fines. Allowing the employees to use their devices for communication may seem cheap.
However, it leads to several data security concerns that may be costly to the institution.
If I were the decision-maker in the hospital, I would effectively pick a communication
company. Similar devices permit data to be shared effectively and safely. Everybody will be
trained on the best way to utilize the programs and the actual device appropriately. Likewise,
having an organization device reduces the compulsion to answer individual calls/messages or be
occupied by online media or whatever else isn't work-related. Everyone will be taught and
educated on properly using the programs on the device and the device itself. Having a company
device also lessens the temptation to answer personal phone calls/texts or be distracted by social
media or anything else that isn't work-related. This will lead to better and easier communication
across the board and less risk for potential errors, resulting in better patient outcomes.
