Center for Digital Health Innovation at UCSF partners with Voalte

Voalte said it has announced VUE15, a co-development effort with the Center for Digital Health Innovation (CDHI) at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

In 2016, this partnership will develop Voalte Story, a product based on CareWeb, a clinician facing interactive patient wall that caregivers may access to post and link texts or alarms to a specific patient.

“In response to the chaotic nature of clinical communications today, we are developing Voalte Story to provide new levels of collaboration and care coordination in the acute care and ambulatory settings,” said Trey Lauderdale, founder and CEO of Voalte. “In healthcare today, text messages, voice calls, and alarms occur millions of times every day. However, these occur in a one-to-one format; a text conversation between a nurse and a doctor cannot be accessed by other parties. Voalte Story solves that.”

Built upon Voalte Platform, the company´s new communication solution, Voalte Story utilizes “enterprise social-based communication” (ESBC) to drive interaction in a format similar to social networks. By using common social media symbols like @ and #, caregivers can easily reference a patient, care-team member, or other staff when communicating about a specific alarm or text message.

UC San Francisco (UCSF) is a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide through advanced biomedical research, graduate-level education in the life sciences and health professions, and excellence in patient care.

Voalte develops smartphone solutions that simplify caregiver communication. Founded in 2008, it is a privately held company based in Sarasota, Florida.
