Voalte announced Voalte Connect this week, a new mobile device management (MDM) solution for hospital networks that utilizes the AirWatch platform’s technology. The new service allows the company to remotely secure, monitor, manage and support mobile devices deployed across a hospital.
Voalte is an iPhone application suite that combines voice, alarm and text features and is intended for use by staff in acute care hospitals in the US and Canada — especially nurses. The company also bundles in medical reference information via a partnership it has with Epocrates.
“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,” stated Voalte VP of innovation Trey Lauderdale in a press release. “This is essential for data and device security.”
“Providing a turn-key management solution allows the hospital to conserve their IT department resources, yet gives them the ability to monitor and control the hospital’s sensitive information that resides on these devices,” stated Lauderdale. For more background on Voalte, check out our interview with Lauderdale at HIMSS 2009, which took place shortly after the company launched.
