A common challenge in rural health today that leaves many administrators scratching their heads is internal communications and how to improve it. It seems virtually impossible to keep staff in different locations working different shifts aware of frequent updates and vital information. Email blasts, bulletin boards, mailbox flyers, and paycheck inserts just don't seem to get the job done.
So what is a hospital with alot of communication needs and limited resources to do? That is exactly the question that led the founder of HospitalPortal.net to create a collection of modules to help hospitals meet those needs with limited IT staff nearly 15 years ago. Since then, HospitalPortal.net's intranet solution has continued to evolve, adding new functionality and modules several times a year based on enhancement requests from clients.
This educational session will be co-presented by Regan Sonnabend of HospitalPortal.net and HospitalPortal.net client Catherine Todd. Catherine is Sr. Director of Business Development and Community Relations at North Valley Hospital in Whitefish, MT.
Catherine joined North Valley Hospital in 2010 and is responsible for marketing, communications, media relations and community relations, in addition to functioning as the Public Information Officer for the hospital and its outreach clinics.

Catherine earned her BS degree in Zoology and MBA with a focus on Marketing from Arizona State University.
