HealthTrust, a US-based group purchasing organisation (GPO), has selected smartphone applications provider Mobile Heartbeat to become a product supplier for its member organisations that include integrated delivery networks, individual healthcare facilities, surgery centers and physician practises.
The smartphone applications of Mobile Heartbeat are designed to improve clinical workflow and team communications.
As part of the deal, Mobile Heartbeat will deliver MH-Clinical Urgent REsponse (CURE), its secure smartphone application enabling clinical communications, patient-specific workflow and a real-time clinical team directory connecting all members of a patient’s care team.
Mobile Heartbeat CEO Ron Remy said: "HealthTrust gives healthcare providers the purchasing power they need to successfully and cost-effectively equip their facilities to provide optimal patient care.
"Becoming a supplier with HealthTrust gets MH-CURE in front of more customers."
The MH-CURE offers patient care teams with secure, single smartphone access to all clinical communications, pertinent patient information and lab data.
With this app, care team members have the choice of using their own smartphone (BYOD) or sharing hospital-supplied devices and they will also know who else is on the team for each patient and can view the availability and status of other team members at all times.
The MH-CURE app allows efficient delivery of clinical data and communications to users on-site, off-site and at multiple locations to ensure timely patient care decisions and response, plus save time and reduce costs.
Mobile Heartbeat uses smartphones to improve clinical workflow and provide secure team communications, delivering better patient care at a lower cost.
The company consolidates clinical communications, including alarms and notifications, pertinent patient information, lab data, texting, voice and photography.
Based upon its CURE technology, the company offers a real-time clinical team directory that efficiently connects all members of a patient’s care team inside and outside the hospital as well as across multiple facilities.
