Mobile Health Tech Rapid Alert System Enables Hospitals to Rapidly Notify Staff, Community and Authorities with Instant 2-way Text Communications
Clark, New Jersey, May 1, 2009 -- Mobile Health Tech, the healthcare division of Gold Mobile, today announced General Availability of release 2.0 of its Hospital Rapid Notification Alert System™. This new release allows hospitals to provide real-time text (SMS) notification, now with 2-way "text chat" communications so subscribers can receive text notifications and updates -- while call center representatives and emergency communications personnel can field inbound questions, easily handling multiple conversations simultaneously. The system can be deployed quickly and affordably. It supports 2-way text communications for any type of emergency including the current Swine Flu outbreak.
The Hospital Rapid Notification Alert System™ 2.0 supports the Joint Commission's new emergency management standard EM.02.02.01 which requires hospitals to establish emergency communications strategies and backup communications processes. The MHT Hospital Rapid Notification Alert System™ enables hospitals to send mass emergency communications to staff, external authorities, patients, families and vendors via text, email and voice alerts.
"Hospital Rapid Notification Alert System™ 2.0 is very timely, as it allows hospitals to manage communications regarding the current potential pandemic," advised Bob Gold, CEO of Gold Mobile and MHT, "Our unique solution was designed to provide real-time pro-active 2-way communications that can help alleviate community fear and panic, while significantly easing the burden of increased call volume for the hospitals."
Easy to Implement Rapid Notification
To help assure timely message delivery, the MHT Hospital Rapid Notification Alert System™ 2.0 allows any hospital to communicate emergency alerts via cell phone (text/SMS), email, voice messages or all three. With the MHT Hospital Rapid Notification Alert System, recipients register online or via mobile phone and can select their preferred method(s) of contact. Messages can be timed and segmented by administrators so that staff, authorities, patients and vendors get contacted with appropriate messages. Hospital staff, such as Physicians, Nurses and Administrative personnel can also get a different message and at different times if need be.
The secure web-based system can be accessed from any PC with a web connection and integrated with existing HIS and Hospital database systems. In most cases, the system can be up and operational in 72 hours. Since the system is web-based, it's easy to maintain and provides complete electronic delivery reports and archives or all text communications.
