Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
One of the leading pediatric hospitals in the country has chosen Voalte One to help its nurses improve hospital communication and patient care.
Voalte, makers of an innovative smartphone solution for clinical communication, announced it was selected by Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago as its provider of choice. Lurie Children’s is implementing the Voalte One solution hospital-wide at its new 23-story, state-of-the-art facility in downtown Chicago.
The Voalte system enables nurses to communicate with each other instantly through presence-based text messages, make high-definition voice calls across the hospital’s secure VoIP system and receive critical care alarms, providing faster responses to patient needs.
“Lurie Children’s is one of the most prestigious pediatric hospitals in the country. Everyone on call has a deep commitment to caring for the patients and families who enter the hospital,” said Voalte President Trey Lauderdale. “Given that commitment, it is a real honor to be chosen as their clinical communication solution.”
Lurie Children’s is the latest in a line of nationally recognized pediatric hospitals to implement Voalte technology. Others include Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston and Children’s Hospital of Alabama in Birmingham.
“Pediatric care is one of the most important healthcare specialties,” said Lauderdale. “Having reliable and efficient communication is critical to providing quality patient care. That is why many pediatric hospitals are turning to Voalte.”
Lurie Children’s Hospital was rated the No. 9 pediatric hospital on U.S. News and World Report’s annual Best Hospitals Honor Roll for 2012.
