Voalte Chosen as Enterprise-wide Clinical Communication Standard
SARASOTA, Fla. (June 1, 2017) — Voalte, the leader in healthcare communication technology and No. 1 Secure Communications Platform as ranked by KLAS, today announced an enterprise-wide agreement to deploy Voalte Platform™ for care team collaboration at St. Luke’s Health System, an Idaho-based eight-hospital system.
“We chose Voalte as our clinical communication provider based on the company’s extensive experience with large, multi-site smartphone deployments and its track record in the marketplace,” said Doug Lyon, IT Director of Unified Communications at St. Luke’s Health System. “Standardizing communication across the organization is integral to our mission of improving the health of people in the communities we serve.”
The Voalte Platform implementation includes Voalte One™ running on the Apple® iPhone for nurses at the point of care, Voalte Me™ for physicians and others using personal smartphones inside and outside the hospital, and Voalte Messenger™ for unit coordinators and other desk-based staff. Voalte Platform replaces older methods of communication, and enables instant connections between care teams and resources across the health system via a unified smartphone directory.
“We are looking forward to helping St. Luke’s in its strategic initiative to better meet patients’ needs, improve outcomes and lower costs,” said Trey Lauderdale, Voalte Founder and CEO. “With one comprehensive care team communication solution connecting the caregiver staff across all of St. Luke’s hospitals and providing instant access to important information, physicians, nurses and staff can focus more on patient care and patient safety, rather than searching for the person or information they need.”
