In healthcare, communication failures can directly or indirectly cause preventable harm. High-risk moments in communication may be during transitions of care, such as when patients move from one area to another, during shift changes, or when orders are being relayed, including for medications or different treatments. These moments can be even more challenging during crisis situations which result in mass displacement, such as disaster and conflict. Mobile phones are also a lifeline for displaced persons during their journey and when they arrive in their host community.
