Voalte, a Sarasota-based technology startup, will soon have the communication platform it developed for hospital use put to the test.
The company announced yesterday that Wahiawa General Hospital, a Hawaii-based facility, would be adopting its system.
Voalte's communication system uses Apple Inc.'s iPhone to combine voice, text, and alarm functions into one device. Wahiawa General will be the first acute care hospital to rely on the Voalte system for communication between its nurses and other point of care staff.
“We evaluated voice badges and other communication solutions, but decided Voalte was the best solution at the leading edge of communication technology,” explained Wahiawa General CEO Jason Fujinaka. “We are committed to providing state-of-the-art technology that will help our nurses provide quality care to our patients.”
Voalte vice president Trey Lauderdale says the hospital's decision to incorporate his company's technology into their day-to-day service offerings “demonstrates Wahiawa's understanding of how technology can improve patient care.”
Voalte's technology was featured in a 2009 issue of the Business Review.
