Los Angeles, CA – February 21, 2017 — BeckonCall CEO, Andrew Steele, joins host Kathy Ireland on the award-winning TV show, Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®. The segment focuses on their Healthcare Communication Management Platform.

BeckonCall is an on-call management platform that replaces pagers and live operator answering services for doctors and their practices, and synthesizes all scheduling, provider management and message routing workflows for care-delivery related communications into a single, easy to use app.  Practices save money compared to what they spend today on answering services, and significantly improve practice efficiency by automating scheduling and communication workflows that continue to rely on pen, paper, fax machines and a lot of manual labor. Most importantly, doctors spend less time trying to communicate – reducing cycle times for consults and patient calls by as much as 90% – so that they can spend more time focused on their patients.  Practices save money, stop revenue leakage, increase capacity to see more patients and generate more revenue.

CEO, Andrew Steele discusses the challenges the healthcare industry faces if it doesn’t modernize its communications infrastructure. He explains, “Healthcare is staring down the barrel of the biggest change to the business model since Medicare was signed into law in 1965. Instead of being a fee-for-service model, doctors are now going to be reimbursed in some part based on performance, outcomes, and quality of care. Healthcare organizations must evolve from operating like utilities to operationally efficient, competitive businesses.  BeckonCall helps them do just that by connecting doctors, nurses and patients instantly and more directly so they can spend more of their time focused on delivering the highest quality care and best patient outcomes.”

Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®, JL Haber, finds a lot to look forward to with this app. “Communication in healthcare is key, and BeckonCall proves that. By getting rid of the middleman and connecting doctors, nurses, and patients more directly, we can look forward to greater efficiency, greater satisfaction, and overall better care for patients. It is an honor to have them on our show.”
