To learn more about the adoption and use of communications and safety technology across today’s healthcare sector, Motorola Solutions conducted the 2021 Healthcare Survey. Survey respondents included nearly 250 healthcare professionals – approximately half of whom work in hospitals and half across surgical centers, long-term care facilities, mental health/addiction treatment centers, urgent care, research centers, and private practice. They include C-level executives, senior and middle managers, and specialists and coordinators with job functions ranging from operations and security to IT and communications. The majority represent organizations that are part of a network containing anywhere from two to 50+ sites or facilities.
