Voalte: A New Fusion of Point-of-Care Communication
Voice. Alarms. Text. The trilogy of point-of-care communication. Now Voalte has combined the three most important forms of healthcare messaging into a seamless service that operates on a single device: the Apple iPhone or RIM BlackBerry.
Like the company’s name, which merges the first two letters of the words Voice, Alarms and Text, Voalte is nothing less than the fusion of all the healthcare devices and systems that currently lead to inefficiency, redundancy, higher costs and loss of precious time for caregivers.
A Bolt Out of the Blue
In March 2008, Apple released its highly anticipated software developer’s kit for the iPhone. While most programmer types used the opportunity to design games and other consumer applications, business development executive Trey Lauderdale envisioned something that would go far beyond fun. Instead of a “killer app,” he imagined an application that might actually save lives.
Trey had long consulted with healthcare professionals to learn about their needs. When he presented the idea of merging the various forms of point-of-care communication, they agreed it was exactly what the industry needed. But could he transform the concept from a promising idea to a hardworking application?
A Company is Born
To realize his vision, Trey joined forces with a small group of creative entrepreneurs who, like him, recognized a need and saw an opportunity. The enthusiastic team consisted of Benjamin King, software guru for CardioMems, a healthcare start-up in Atlanta; Oscar Callejas, a veteran of the hotel industry and an expert in customer care; and Rob Campbell, former executive for Apple and Microsoft; to form a new company dedicated to point-of-care communication. Rob agreed to lead the Company as CEO, and Voalte, Inc. was born.
The Voalte Difference
What sets the company apart is the simple act of listening. From the conception of the idea to the delivery of its first product, Voalte’s customers have had input every step of the way. In an industry where companies have too often given in to being “good enough,” Voalte recognizes that healthcare professionals deserve better. They deserve the fusion of all forms of point-of-care communication.
They deserve Voalte.
