Mission Hospital, part of the St. Joseph Hoag Health network, with campuses in Mission
Viejo and Laguna Beach, has chosen to install Quail Digital’s wireless
headset technology to improve communication between physicians and clinical
staff during complex procedures.
Mission Hospital Mission Viejo is south Orange County’s only regional
trauma center and, through a unique partnership with CHOC Children’s
at Mission Hospital, is the only designated paediatric health care center
in south Orange County. Two of Quail Digital’s wireless healthcare
headset systems are being used in Mission Hospital’s cath labs,
where clinicians use diagnostic imaging equipment to see the arteries
and chambers of the heart and treat any stenosis or abnormality found.
Mission Hospital uses the headsets during their 4 hour complex ablation
procedures. The inclusion of the headsets has significantly reduced noise
in the room and created a much better form of direct, clear communication
between staff, physicians and critical rep support.
The headsets are worn by clinical team members to ensure high-definition
communication during procedures. Those using the headsets are able to
speak clearly with colleagues in the adjoining monitoring room to share
information and instructions regarding patient care and the status of
The Quail Digital Healthcare System, which supports up to 30 headset users
weighing just 23g, is designed to provide clear and discrete communication
on the high quality 1.88-1.90 GHz frequency band. Multiple systems can
be used on the same floor without interference.
Quail Digital has recently become a fully registered U.S Federal Supplier
to hospitals and agencies for its wireless headset system.
“The headsets allow for better communication between the physicians
and staff during complex ablations which reduces noise in room. We have
had great feedback from all Cardiologists and Electrophysiologists” says Linda Ashbury, Mission Hospital’s Cath Lab Manager.
Tom Downes, CEO of Quail Digital said:“We’re delighted that Mission Hospital has selected Quail Digital
for its ORs. Improving communication between the clinical team is always
important and contributes to better patient outcomes. We look forward
to working with Mission over the coming years.”
