HaysMed Implements Smartphones to Improve Patient Care
Hays, KS–—HaysMed recently launched a new initiative to coordinate patient care. The Voalte Platform™ helps enhance patient care and communication through the use of smartphones. The system integrates Apple® iPhones with multiple alarm sources and HIPAA compliant messaging to ensure physicians, nurses and support staff always have the most up-to-date patient information.
The Voalte Platform implementation will include Voalte One™ on shared smartphones for nurses at the point of care, Voalte Me™ for physicians and others using personal smartphones outside the hospital, and the Voalte Messenger™ web client for unit coordinators and secure calling and messaging, bringing together all forms of communication on one powerful, smartphone-based platform.
“As hospital dedicated to providing high-quality healthcare to our community, we look for solutions to improving patient care,” said Bryce Young, Chief Operating Officer. “We want our employees to have the most up to date technology as the foundation for communication across the hospital to ensure that care teams can access and exchange information securely, and collaborate efficiently on patient care.”
With this system physicians and nurses will be able to collaborate quickly and efficiently on an easy-to-use smartphone, and provide the best possible patient care.
‘The ability to streamline care team communication and improve access to vital patient information is invaluable” said Young.
