Voalté, a leading developer of innovative point-of-care communications software on the iPhone and other smart phone platforms, today announced that it will host a free one-hour webinar on May 19: “3 steps to get your smart phone strategy rolling”.
A research study, “Quantifying the Economic Impact of Communication Inefficiencies in U.S. Hospitals”, conducted by the Center for Health Information and Decision Systems in 2008 showed that the average hospital is at risk of losing $4 million annually due to poor communication. Some hospitals are responding quickly by planning for smart phone and tablet integration.
Implementing smart phones provides better communication which leads to better patient outcomes, according to Trey Lauderdale, Voalte’s vice president of innovation.
Sarasota Memorial Hospital’s CIO Denis Baker will provide insight on developing a strategic plan and assessing and preparing the technology infrastructure to increase efficiency. Melita Howell, application architect at Texas Children’s Hospital, will discuss creating a situation and baseline analysis to streamline clinical workflow and improve patient care.
