Popular culture has always celebrated “perfect pairs,” from dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to movie stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence to musicians Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. In healthcare, another pair that’s “better together” joined forces earlier this year when Hillrom™, a leading global medical technology company, acquired Voalte™, a pioneer in mobile healthcare communications. Now, healthcare organizations are starting to benefit from the combination of Hillrom and Voalte solutions.
For example, Mercy Health Muskegon, which is part of Trinity Health, connected care teams across its old campus to its new medical tower with a care communications platform that combines Hillrom nurse call with Voalte mobile solutions. This aligns directly with the Mercy Health Muskegon model of care, which focuses on “bringing services to the patient” by putting supplies near the patient so nurses can easily access them, and delivering timely clinical data to the point of care to help nurses and physicians make informed clinical decisions.
Since implementing the new platform, Mercy Health Muskegon has significantly improved communications efficiency and response times, and increased patient safety and satisfaction. As John Hosler, Senior Clinical Systems Support Analyst for Trinity Health Information Services, noted, “NaviCare® Nurse Call and the Voalte communications platform have had a significant impact on the care and safety of our patients.”
