Motorola and Voalte Offer Android-Based Mobile Communication to Hospital Caregivers

Posted February 18, 2014

Voalte, the leader in healthcare communication technology, today announced a strategic relationship with Motorola to support the Android version of Voalte One, the company’s mobile communication platform for hospital caregivers.

Voalte will offer customers the Motorola MC40-HC, the first multi-purpose mobile computer for healthcare. The device improves care coordination while incorporating inventory management capabilities in a touch-based, consumer-like device running on the Android operating system. Voalte chose Motorola’s MC40-HC healthcare-grade mobile computer for its stability, enterprise durability and built-in barcode scanner. The device provides a sustainable platform for the healthcare environment, including robust Wi-Fi connections that keep staff connected, security features that help meet patient privacy requirements, and remote management of devices and applications. The MC40-HC will support the Voalte One application, which combines voice calls, alarm and alert integration, and secure text messaging.

“Our strategic relationship with Motorola Solutions and expansion to the Android client are a testament to the growing demand for secure communication in healthcare,” said Trey Lauderdale, Founder and President of Voalte. “We’re thrilled to take the next step with Motorola to continue improving care coordination and enhancing the overall patient experience.”

In addition to an increasing demand for smartphones, hospitals are adopting barcode medication administration (BCMA) in an effort to reduce medical errors, improve patient safety and comply with government regulations. The MC40-HC is equipped with a 2D barcode scanner for point-and-scan simplicity when administering medication, eliminating the need for multiple devices.

“Secure communication is a vital part of hospitals’ efforts to improve patient care and the patient experience,” said Randy Briley, Director of Healthcare Sales at Motorola Solutions. “With its ergonomic design, integrated barcode scanner, disinfectant-ready housing and tightly integrated alert and notification features, Voalte One on the MC40-HC creates a secure and manageable solution at the point of care for healthcare facilities.”
