Saskatchewan recently saw a spike in COVID-19 cases in a northern community. It was imperative to mobilize a team of healthcare professionals as quickly as possible to assist the Northern Inter-Tribal Health Authority in managing the outbreak. The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) needed to get support to the north immediately, so they turned to Broadcast for help.
Andgo’s Broadcast module allows mass one-way communication to be sent to a configurable group of employees via text message, email, or phone. The SHA was able to send a Broadcast to its users in search of volunteers to help the northern community. It only took one day for more than 100 individuals to answer the call and volunteer to travel north to assist in fighting the outbreak. The fast response to the Broadcast is a great example of Saskatchewan residents coming together as a community to combat COVID-19.
We love seeing our systems being put to work and creating positive change. We’re just a small piece of the equation in the fight against COVID-19, and we couldn’t be more proud. This is why we started Andgo. We work hard to provide Healthcare industries with communication tools they need to keep their staff informed.

How Broadcast Helps
Clear communication with employees during this trying time helps eliminate uncertainty. Broadcast allows employers to control the messaging across all regions and workforces. It’s important to keep employees up-to-date with the latest news, especially in a situation where the status is changing every hour. Broadcast helps organizations by providing them with a way to community important information to a large number of employees at once.
