The implementation brought forth several benefits across the hospital, positively impacting collaboration and communication:
1. Fast training with support for providers’ safety
Easy and efficient access to all relevant medical guidance, best practices, e-learning modules and other relevant knowledge allowed clinical staff to asynchronously learn relevant procedures for Covid19 related care, reducing the need for in-person training sessions which would have increased their risk for infection . Providers received immediate and streamlined notifications about updates in guidance to make sure care was based on the latest evidence. 
2. Streamlined Information Dissemination
The C8 Health platform facilitated centralized knowledge management and real-time access to locally vetted guidance, eliminating knowledge silos and the need to look for other sources of information, ensuring consistent and up-to-date information across the hospital system [1,2]
3. Enhanced Collaboration
With C8 Health, multidisciplinary teams from different departments could improve collaboration by aligning on up-to-date guidance about patient streamlining, treatment plans, hand-offs and transfer of care [1,2]. This was of importance due the extensive need of collaboration and alignment between stakeholders in pre-hospital care, outpatient clinics, the emergency department, the internal medicine wards, intermediate care and intensive care.
4. Time savings & Reassurance in clinical practice
C8 Health’s streamlined information retrieval, helped reduce time spent searching for guidelines and resources. The median time to access any clinical guidance in the system was 16 seconds. This increased efficiency resulted in significant time savings reported by clinicians , potentially freeing up time to focus more on patient care. Providers also felt reassured in their clinical practice with access to clearly stipulated and vetted instructions from their supervisors .
5. Increase reach of information and adherence to guidance
By providing streamlined access to locally vetted guidance and enabling communications between stakeholders and frontline teams, the platform was shown to increase the reach of updated clinical guidance to providers . The use of C8 Health supported adherence to locally vetted guidance created by the hospital, and promoted an enhanced clinical decision-making process [1, 2].
