In October 2014, Boulder Community Health completed the consolidation of services at its state-of-the-art Foothills Campus, which added more than 150,000 square feet of clinical space and medical offices. The newly renovated and expanded facility also needed a new way for caregivers to communicate. After researching the options, the hospital chose a Voalte smartphone solution to replace single-function legacy phones with Apple® iPhone 5S smartphones running Voalte One™ software.

The smartphones are much more efficient than running from room to room trying to locate someone. They also help minimize interruptions while caregivers are in the room with a patient. Receiving a text message with a small chime or quick buzz gives the nurse immediate information she can use to determine if she needs to step out of the room right away, or finish what she is doing first.
