Voalté strikes deal with Samsung
SARASOTA Voalté, which provides clinical communication systems, has entered into an agreement with Samsung Telecommunications America LLC to provide communication systems for use on Samsung’s smartphones.
Voalté’s smartphone communications system enables caregivers to send and receive presence-based text messages, make high-definition voice calls across the hospital VoIP system, and receive critical care alarms, providing faster response time to patient needs.
In collaboration with Samsung, Voalté fine-tuned its Voalté One application to take advantage of the flexibility of Android, the operating system for mobile devices.
“The Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 and the Samsung Galaxy Note are terrific mobile platforms for nursing. They are Wi-Fi ready, durable, yet very lightweight and the touch screens are vivid and responsive,” said Voalté’s vice president of innovation Trey Lauderdale.
