Eastern Health’s Beacon App can be used for updates during IT outage
Eastern Health employees, with a valid Eastern Health email address, can utilize the Beacon App for receiving updates during the current IT disruptions.
By downloading the Beacon app, employees, physicians, and students can:
- Receive important updates related to the RHA-wide IT disruption
- Receive important notifications wherever they are and be alerted in seconds of any critical situation within, or near, Eastern Health sites that affect them, e.g. COVID-19 staff updates or timely information on building closures due to adverse weather;
- Have emergency quick response actions at their fingertips, as well as security contact information and resources; and
- Access a ‘Friend Walk’ feature, which allows employees, physicians or students to share their real-time location virtually, with a contact, to help them get to their destination safely
