Growth Focuses on Multi-hospital Systems with Enterprise-wide Deployments
SARASOTA, Fla. (April 14, 2016) — Voalte, the leader in healthcare communication technology, today announced strong growth for fiscal year 2016, signing contracts with 125 hospitals to deploy Voalte Platform™ for care team communication. This increases the Voalte customer base to 275 hospitals and represents 83 percent growth in FY2016.
“The healthcare industry’s trend toward consolidation and value-based care is prompting the move to a communication platform that can scale across the care continuum,” said Voalte Founder and CEO Trey Lauderdale. “Voalte has demonstrated success in replacing legacy phones, pagers and voice badges with smartphones inside and outside the hospital. The result is an enterprise-wide platform that connects clinicians seamlessly, no matter where they are.”
New Voalte customers include major healthcare organizations such as:
- Archbold Medical Center
- Avera Health
- Borgess Health
- Eastar Health System
- Greater Baltimore Medical Center
- Stanford Children’s Health
- Memorial Sloan Kettering
- St. Agnes Hospital
- St. Vincent Healthcare
- Tampa General Hospital
- The University of Kansas Hospital
From April 2015 through March 2016, Voalte contracts averaged 850 licenses, marking an industry shift toward standardized communication across multi-hospital systems instead of focusing on individual facilities. Seventy percent of new customers purchased both Voalte One and Voalte Me for clinical communication across the acute care and ambulatory care settings. This demonstrates the market’s move away from basic text messaging to a strategic solution that integrates EMR, nurse call, patient monitoring and other systems, all on one device.
“It’s vital for our customers to make systems from multiple vendors work together seamlessly,” said Philip Fibiger, Vice President of Engineering at Voalte. “Voalte Platform is vendor-neutral, and works across virtual or physical platforms. Our customers can integrate various systems with our communication technologies to make the most of their existing investments and prepare for the healthcare environment of the future.”
Voalte develops smartphone solutions that simplify caregiver communication. As the only company to offer a comprehensive Mobile Communication Strategy, Voalte enables care teams inside and outside the hospital to access and exchange information securely. Voalte customers benefit from a solid smartphone infrastructure that supports their existing systems and expands to accommodate future technologies. Founded in 2008, Voalte is a privately held company based in Sarasota, Florida. Voalte solutions are now available to more than 132,000 caregivers throughout the United States.
