to reduce medical errors
Patients with communication barriers are 3x more likely to experience preventable medical errors
With inconsistently implemented communication strategies, the care team is unable to get the information they need to make critical decisions on time.
This often results in increased length of stay, poorer clinical outcomes, and medical errors.
Existing high-tech communication tools are underutilized at point of care because they require specialized clinicians at limited capacity and several training sessions with the patient.
Most common communication barriers that can be found in acute care settings:
Patients on ventilators are completely unable to produce speech
1 in 8 people above the age of 12 has bilateral hearing loss
About 10% of the US population does not speak fluent English
ICU-acquired weakness, sedation, and physical restraints impact patients’ mobility and strength
