Critical care alarms — on your phone

Pocket technology is revolutionizing healthcare.  From PDRs on PDAs to almost instantaneous access to EMRs, tech tools place a world of information at clinicians’ fingertips.  Now, a new technology promises to deliver critical care alarms straight to your smartphone.
Voalté (short for Voice, Alarm and Text) gives users the ability to send and receive text messages, make phone calls and receive critical care alarms on personal iPhones.  Nurses at Sarasota Memorial Hospital participated in an early trial of the app and found that overhead pages decreased by 78% after implementation of the system.

The Voalté One solution will soon be available on the iPad as well.
