Sarasota Memorial Hospital is collaborating with start-up tech firm, Voalté, to introduce an innovative iPhone application. The application allows for voice, alarm and text messages to be delivered to the point of care via the iPhone. The application is being welcomed by Nurses who are finding they have more time to spend caring for patients.
Sarasota,Fla (PRWEB) October 9, 2009 --Trey Lauderdale, Vice President of Innovation for Voalté (pronounced volt), announced a newly established collaboration agreement with Sarasota Memorial Hospital that brings cutting edge communication technology to nurses and other point-of-care workers. Voalté (nomenclature derived from a contraction of Voice, Alarm, Text) consolidates all three functions on the versatile iPhone platform. The application enables users to send and receive text messages, make voice calls, and receive critical care alarms on the iPhone, providing faster response to patient needs.
While the Voalté product was still in development, Lauderdale began looking for a suitable health care facility to help shape the application. He knew that Sarasota Memorial, long recognized as one of the nation's top hospitals, had a reputation for embracing leading-edge technology. He approached Denis Baker, the hospital's Chief Information Officer, with his new technology. After several meetings, a deal was struck to pilot the Voalté One™ solution in the hospital.
"We are committed to providing our patients with the very best health care," said Baker. "We harness technology to improve care and increase efficiency. The Voalté application had components we felt would assist in providing a better experience for our patients."
