The use of mobile technology is not new to LRGHealthcare. For the past few months, smart phone communication systems have been utilized at Franklin Regional Hospital and Lakes Region General Hospital to coordinate in-patient care.
The Voalté clinical software system allows nurses, physicians and allied staff to communicate directly and securely via iPhones through alarms, voice and text messaging. The system has already proven to improve healthcare team communications, while ensuring patient safety and satisfaction.
