Mobile Heartbeat has announced the launch of Mobile Heartbeat CURE (Clinical Urgent REsponse), a smartphone application enabling secure mobile clinical communications.

MH-CURE, which is designed for patient care teams, enables all team members to know who else is on the team and to view the availability of other team members at all times.

The application is designed to provide nurses, physicians and technicians with secure, single smartphone access to all clinical communications, pertinent patient information and lab data.

The patient-centric care team directory of the Mobile Heartbeat CURE identifies and connects in real time the changing members of the patient's care team, both physicians and nurses, and provides information on how to reach them.

MH-CURE functions as a staff assignment integrator, adding assignments from third-party systems to MH-CURE to build a dynamic care team for each patient.

The solution features a set of hardware and software modules installed on industry-standard servers and smartphones.

Its consolidated communication includes secure texting, voice, caregiver-specific alarms and alerts, VoIP and PBX connectivity, easy integration with electronic medical records (EMRs), and integration with a facility's cloud infrastructure.

"With Mobile Heartbeat CURE, health care facilities have a patient-centric solution that leverages smartphones to provide enhanced patient care communication and more efficient team coordination and workflow."

The app is fully HIPAA compliant and supports a variety of smartphone and tablet devices on the iOS and Android platforms.

For shared devices, Mobile Heartbeat provides a 'grab and go' activation capability via QuickLaunch.

MH-CURE includes pre-programmed texts for faster message response. It also includes push technology to deliver important alerts and information to care team members as soon as possible.

According to the company, the application will enable hospitals to benefit from an increase in efficiency due to the improved speed of care team communications.

Hospitals can save time lost to callbacks and experience fewer communications errors, reducing their liability. They can also reduce their communications infrastructure costs, according to Mobile Heartbeat.

Mobile Heartbeat CEO Ron Remy commented, "With Mobile Heartbeat CURE, health care facilities have a patient-centric solution that leverages smartphones to provide enhanced patient care communication and more efficient team coordination and workflow."
