Beeper paging systems

 

Fam Pract Manag. 1999 Jun;6(6):9.

To the Editor:

I enjoy and learn much from FPM. The article “13 Ways to Be More Efficient” (April 1999) discussed internal beeper paging systems as a way to locate physicians. I am interested in using this type of system to locate staff members — specifically medical assistants — in our busy practice. What systems are available, and where can I find them?

Editor's response:

Some companies we've found that advertise in-house or on-site pagers are Visiplex Inc. (847-405-0771; www.visiplex.com), Phonejack.com (888-920-7354; www.phonejack.com/paging.htm) and Commenco Inc. (913-492-8895; www.commenco.com).
