Voalté has launched its new mobile device management (MDM) solution, “Voalté Connect.” The solution takes advantage of the AirWatch platform to deploy, use and scale industry-leading MDM solutions for enterprise-wide deployments.
“Introducing updates, data and configuration settings for all types of mobile devices through Voalté 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 Voalté.
Voalté’s current smartphone solution 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 on the iPhone, providing faster response time to patient needs. The new service, Voalté Connect, will allow the company to remotely secure, monitor, manage and support mobile devices deployed across the hospital, such as smartphones, laptops and tablets.
According to Lauderdale, Voalté will manage hospital and personal-owned mobile devices that have been given access to the hospital’s network to prevent information from being released in the case of a lost or stolen device. “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,” he said.
