Employee Spotlight – Chrissie Pattison Continuwell Sales Manager
In this edition of our Employee Spotlight, we are introducing Chrissie Pattison, the Continuwell sales manager. Chrissie met TriageLogic’s founders Charu and Ravi Raheja at a mutual friend’s birthday party. They struck up a conversation that led to what they did at TriageLogic. Chrissie was instantly interested since she had been married to a physician and understood how taking calls affected doctors’ lives.

CASE STUDY: Triage Nurse Speeding Diagnosis of Patient Symptoms by Asking the Right Questions
Telephone nurse triage plays a critical role in making sure that patients are given the correct level of care when they call. This requires following strict guidelines established through Schmitt-Thompson protocols, in which the nurse asks certain questions beginning with the most emergent symptoms. In some cases, a nurse will go above and beyond a typical triage call and we will highlight them as a Nurse Hero. We highlight the work of Tina, a triage nurse who was able to go beyond standard protocols and figure out the reason why a patient was having the symptoms he called about. This allowed the patient to get the quick intervention he needed to save his health. It was because Tina, a TriageLogic nurse, knew exactly what questions to ask that she became one of our Nurse Hero.
