Why would I ever want Auto Answer enabled?

Posted by: Kenny Schiff on October 10, 2007

Having Auto Answer enabled allows any caller to break through immediately into conversation with the called party. When you think about that, it certainly seems too much of an infringement on a person’s profession. However, we have found that for certain roles within a hospital, management has determined that there really isn’t a good excuse for a user to deny a call. These roles have included some non-clinical personnel such transporters and environmental services. The thinking in these cases is that if you are on site to perform your job, let’s make it simple for the instant communication to happen. The answering party can always put the caller on hold and announce that they will call back. Like everything in Vocera, it’s management’s choice on these options.
