Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth chooses Voalte for caregiver communication
Voalte, a provider of healthcare communication technology, announced that Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth, Massachusetts, has replaced its caregiver communication system with a comprehensive Voalte smartphone solution.
The 155-bed hospital replaced its existing smartphone communication solution with Voalte One software for caregivers within the hospital, and Voalte Me for secure texting outside the hospital on personal smartphones. According to Ron Rutherford, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at BID-Plymouth, “We are pleased to give our caregivers a robust, reliable smartphone solution from Voalte. Now our doctors and nurses can communicate quickly and easily via secure text messaging, at any time and from any location.”
Voalte One offers voice communication, text messaging and alarm integration to streamline communication between hospital caregivers. Voalte Me enables caregivers at the bedside to exchange secure text messages with providers outside the hospital using personal smartphones.
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth, formerly Jordan Hospital, joined the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center family of hospitals in 2014. The alliance is part of the hospital’s ongoing effort to strengthen its medical services and provide patients with the best possible care. An integral part of that initiative involves equipping caregivers with effective communication tools.
“Our partnership with and their switch to a Voalte smartphone solution emphasizes this hospital’s mission to deliver excellent healthcare service,” said Trey Lauderdale, Founder and CEO of Voalte. “We’re confident that our products will provide the BID-Plymouth team with the tools they need to further their mission and provide the best possible patient care.”
