Florida-based Voalte, a company known for its mobile applications for nurses and clinicians, is teaming with a company called AirWatch, a maker of smartphone security and mobile device management solutions, to launch a platform designed to help administrators manage mobile devices throughout any building or campus.
The platform, dubbed “Voalte Connect,” gives administrators a platform to deploy, use and scale MDM solutions for enterprise-wide deployments. The platform is designed to allow clinicians to send and receive presence-based text messages, make phone calls using the hospital’s VoIP system and receive critical care alarms on their iPhones, among other things. The main benefit comes with the ability for any hospital or facility to manage all internal and personal mobile devices, such as smartphones, laptops and tablets, from a central and secure location.
“Introducing updates, data and configuration settings for all types of mobile devices through Voalte Connect allows hospitals to better control and protect their data as well as greatly reduce cost and risk,” said Trey Lauderdale, vice president of innovation at Voalte, in a press release. “This is essential for data and device security.”
