Amcom Expands Hospital Smartphone Messaging With Android Support

Amcom Software’s Amcom Mobile Connect now offers smartphone messaging for the Android.  This enables staff members at technology-driven hospitals to receive all messages on a single smartphone, negating the need to carry multiple devices.  The solution provides a full audit trail of activities, including date and time stamps for messages sent, received, and acknowledged.  The result is improved patient care and staff efficiency through a highly streamlined unified communications process in which it’s clear how to reach the right staff members at all times.

With smartphones as the basis for their pager replacement strategy, healthcare organizations are able to tap devices already in widespread use to simplify the process of contacting highly mobile staff.  This gives hospitals the flexibility to incorporate smartphones without worrying about which telecom carrier provides service.  This Amcom solution is already in place at several hospitals using BlackBerry smartphones.

Hospital operators and others can use Amcom Mobile Connect to deploy critical messages to staff members through a variety of inputs, including a simple Web portal.  In addition to this stand-alone deployment option, the solution also integrates seamlessly with Amcom’s unified communications suite.
