Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) June 1, 2010
Healthcare Informatics magazine has named Voalté® one of the Up and Coming healthcare technology companies in the June issue. Voalté is a leader in point-of-care communication technology.
“Healthcare Informatics is well respected by healthcare thought leaders. We are humbled to be selected as one of their ‘Up and Comers’,” said Trey Lauderdale, vice president of innovation at Voalté.
Voalté has experienced rapid growth and nationwide interest in its unique point-of-care communications solution. The first-of-its-kind smartphone application enables nurses and clinicians to send and receive text messages, make voice calls, and receive critical care alarms on the iPhone and BlackBerry, providing faster response times to patient needs.
“Our growth can be directly attributed to the need to replace antiquated communication devices in hospitals, which cause confusion and reduce nurse efficiency,” Lauderdale said.
The Voalté One solution offers a turnkey solution for the communication breakdown.
“We leverage smartphone technology to provide PC-like functionality and advanced capabilities. This enables hospital staff and nurses to communicate faster which dramatically increases their efficiency and improves patient care,” Lauderdale said.
Following the success of the company’s pilot at Sarasota Memorial Hospital in Sarasota, Fla., Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, Calif. became the first hospital on the West Coast to install the solution. The company’s short-term growth plans include nationwide expansion.
“We have received significant interest from some of the nation’s top hospitals,” said Lauderdale. “It’s exciting for us and we hope to continue this growth momentum.”
