After an extensive review, we chose Voalte Platform as the foundation for communication across our nine geographically dispersed locations to ensure that care teams inside and outside the hospital can access and exchange information securely, and collaborate efficiently on patient care.

Voalte, the leader in healthcare communication technology, announced that Mount Sinai Medical Center, the largest private, independent, not-for-profit teaching hospital in South Florida, chose Voalte Platform™ to help enhance patient care and communication through the use of smartphones. Mount Sinai is a nationally recognized top 100 hospital by IBM Watson Health™ with a state-of-the-art surgical tower, and nine convenient locations in Miami-Dade County. The enterprise-wide agreement integrates Apple® iPhones with multiple alarm sources and the Epic electronic medical record (EMR), ensuring physicians, nurses and support staff always have the most up-to-date patient information.

The Voalte Platform implementation will include Voalte One™ on shared smartphones for nurses at the point of care, Voalte Me™ for physicians and others using personal smartphones outside the hospital, and the Voalte Messenger™ web client for unit coordinators and other desk-based staff. Voalte Platform integrates via Connexall® middleware with Rauland Responder® 5 nurse call, physiological monitor alerts, and patient information in the EMR, bringing together all forms of communication on one powerful, smartphone-based platform.

“As a teaching hospital dedicated to providing high-quality healthcare to our community, we recognize the need to equip our staff with the most efficient tools,” said Tom Gillette, Chief Information Officer at Mount Sinai Medical Center. “After an extensive review, we chose Voalte Platform as the foundation for communication across our nine geographically dispersed locations to ensure that care teams inside and outside the hospital can access and exchange information securely, and collaborate efficiently on patient care.”

“As a Miami native, I’m thrilled to work with Mount Sinai Medical Center to streamline care team communication and improve access to vital patient information,” said Trey Lauderdale, Founder and CEO of Voalte. “Physicians and nurses will be able to access the most up-to-date patient information in the Epic EMR, collaborate quickly and efficiently on an easy-to-use smartphone, and provide the best possible patient care.”
