Stony Brook Medicine Relies on Rave Alert During Super Storm Sandy

Stony Brook Medicine, a 603-bed facility with over 6,000 employees, leveraged Rave Alert  during Super Storm Sandy to communicate with hospital staff during the  30-hour campus-wide network outage.  

For a 48-hour period throughout Super Storm Sandy, the on-campus hospital experienced a campus-wide network outage. Several emergency issues transpired, including a gunpoint robbery, and essential hospital staff needed to be communicated with.

Stony Brook Medicine deployed voice, text and email alerts through Rave Alert to the appropriate parties at the hospital. By leveraging Rave Alert, the hospital targeted the right audience, with the message most important to them, at the right time. Since implementing Rave Alert, Stony Brook Medicine has significantly cut down on the amount of time it takes to notify hospital personnel.
