For the umpteenth year (we’ve lost count), the Spectralink team is packing their bags and heading to HIMSS16 – meeting and mingling with more than 43,000 health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world. If you’re in Las Vegas next week, please stop by and say “hi!” You will find us in booth 443 on Level 2 of the Sands Expo Center as well as at in kiosk 26 in the Intelligent Health™ Pavilion. This year, Spectralink is featuring the cure for common smartphone ailments. You do not want to miss this!
So you may be asking, “What exactly is a smartphone ailment?” Spectralink has found that faced with persistent staff requests, security concerns and cost pressures, many healthcare organizations deploy secure messaging apps on consumer smartphones. Unfortunately, these well-meaning healthcare leaders end up replacing dozens of stolen and damaged phones, after discovering that not all smartphones are created equal. Weak call quality, lack of durability, and poor battery performance from consumer smartphones often jeopardize critical communications and possibly affect patient outcomes.
Fortunately, Spectralink has the cure to the consumer smartphone pandemic. Our PIVOT™ smartphones have the durability, reliability, and voice quality that caregivers need in a critical communication device. At HIMSS16, we are featuring the latest addition to the PIVOT portfolio: the PIVOT:SC clinical smartphone with integrated camera. With the availability of secure mobile applications on the Google Android platform that support attaching images, high quality medical photos can now be sent using secure text messaging and attached to patient records. This is essential for mobile communications in acute care environments.
Spectralink is also launching new Worksmart Services, Spectracare, Spectracare Plus, and an updated management solution, CMS 2.0, which speeds up the provisioning process. It is a platform for future management capabilities that will lower total cost of ownership (TCO) – a priority for many healthcare providers. Additionally, we’ve developed new, streamlined carrying accessories that are designed for the rigors of healthcare environments.
We look forward to seeing you at HIMSS – booth 443 and at kiosk 26 in the Intelligent Health™ Pavilion.
