Voalte Smartphones Reduce Noise, Improve Communication at Nemours Childrens Hospital

Voalte Smartphones Reduce Noise, Improve Communication at Nemours Childrens Hospital

Sarasota, Fla. (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Voalte, the leader in healthcare communication technology, today released its latest case study featuring Nemours Childrens Hospital in Orlando, Florida, which explores the impact of text messaging and integrated alarms on noise levels and patient satisfaction.

According to the case study, Nemours Childrens Hospital equipped its new, state-of-the-art facility with more than 100 Voalte smartphones. The hospital selected Voalte after identifying a need for quiet, quick and efficient communication between caregivers. With Voalte in place, caregivers are able to make voice calls, receive alarms and alerts, and send and receive secure text messages.

Voalte One supported our ability to quickly send communications in a quiet way via text messages, and allowed the caregiver to respond when it was an appropriate time rather than interrupting patient care, said Barbara Meeks, Chief Nursing Executive at Nemours Childrens Hospital.


In addition to efficient communication, Voalte One users can receive nurse call alarms directly to their smartphones. As a result, the facility uses overhead paging only in the event of an emergency, which drastically reduces noise levels. The Voalte platform also works in conjunction with the hospitals Logistics Center, a high-tech communication hub that monitors patient vital signs and escalates alarms to secondary caregivers if the first nurse rejects the alarm.

Voalte provided a great ability to leverage our existing technologies and yet provide functionality similar to what folks use in their everyday life, said Bernie Rice, Chief Information Officer at Nemours Childrens Hospital. The use of texting has been overwhelmingly well-received by our nurses and staff.
