Texas Children's Hospital Significantly Decreases Unnecessary Interruptions with Voalte One
Texas Children’s Hospital, a 474 bed facility, is the first pediatric hospital in the country and the first hospital in Texas to use iPhones with Voalte’s innovative solution for point-of-care communication.
Nurses and clinicians at Texas Children’s Hospital are able to send and receive presence-based text messages, make high definition voice calls across the hospital VoIP system, and receive critical care alarms on the iPhone, providing faster response to patient needs.
“Texas Children’s Hospital was the proud recipient of the 2011 CIO 100 award for exemplifying the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in IT, said Myra Davis, vice president of Texas Children’s Information Services. “Voalte helped us achieve this honor by providing a seamless communication platform for our highly mobile heath care staff.”
Pediatric hospitals demand well-coordinated care teams and mobile communication is essential for insuring that nurses receive the right information at the right time.
“As one of the nation’s top pediatric facilities, Texas Children’s Hospital recognizes the potential of smartphone technology to improve communications and patient care,” said Trey Lauderdale, vice president of innovation at Voalte. “They’re leading the way again by being the first pediatric hospital in the U.S. to adopt this new technology.”
