Caregivers Working Inside and Outside the Hospital Will Collaborate via a Unified Directory, Secure Texting, and Alarms and Alerts
SARASOTA, Fla. (January 24, 2017) — Voalte, the leader in healthcare communication technology, today announced that Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has selected Voalte Platform™ for enterprise care team communication and alarm and alert notification. Ranked one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has 575 licensed beds spanning three hospitals, plus 27 neighborhood locations throughout metro Atlanta.
The Voalte Platform project includes Voalte One™ for nurses using shared smartphones at the point of care, Voalte Me™ for physicians and others using personal smartphones outside the hospital, and Voalte Messenger™ for unit coordinators and other desk-based staff. All users will be included in a powerful, role-based visual directory that makes it easy to find the right person at the right time. The multi-phase project will connect thousands of caregivers across all locations with Zebra MC40-HC™ devices and Voalte Me licenses. In addition to secure text messaging and voice over IP calling, Voalte Platform also integrates with the hospital’s middleware to route nurse calls from Rauland Responder 5 directly to the appropriate caregiver’s smartphone.
“Efficient communication and quick response times are vitally important when it comes to helping children heal and reassuring concerned parents,” said Adam McMullin, Voalte Chairman and CEO. “When a leading pediatric hospital like Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta chooses Voalte Platform, they understand that we are dedicated to helping them provide the highest quality of care and keeping the smallest patients safe.”
