US-based provider of smartphone applications Mobile Heartbeat has entered a partnership with CDW, a provider of technology solutions to business, government, education and healthcare.
Under the deal, CDW will be involved in providing the Mobile Heartbeat Clinical Urgent Response (MH-CURE) smartphone application to a range of facilities in the healthcare market.
The partnership will see MH-CURE incorporated into CDW's Total Mobility Management solutions stack, and help ensure healthcare customers have access to a complete, managed mobility solution that enables them to focus on improving patient outcomes and care quality.
The Total Mobility Management solutions stack includes services across devices, applications, management and security.
Mobile Heartbeat CEO Ron Remy said: "Aligning with a healthcare market solutions provider such as CDW will make it easier for hospitals to acquire and integrate MH-CURE as part of a complete mobility solution, extending our product reach and impact into previously untapped regions and healthcare groups.
"We look to benefit tremendously from CDW's market expertise and presence, as well as its reputation as a healthcare technology solutions powerhouse."
MH-CURE offers patient care teams, including nurses, physicians and technicians, with secure, single smartphone access to all clinical communications, pertinent patient information and lab data.
Care team members have a choice of using their own smartphone (BYOD) or sharing hospital-supplied devices and with the help of MH-CURE, they know who else is on the team for each patient and can view the availability and location of colleagues at all times.
MH-CURE provides 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.
The company noted that when using MH-CURE, hospitals save time and reduce costs and improve patient care.
