Sarasota (FL) Memorial Hospital uses new iPhone technology to help patients and nurses

Healthcare IT News, December 8, 2009

Sarasota (FL) Memorial Health Care System officials say an iPhone platform at one hospital has helped give nurses more time with patients, increasing patient and nurse satisfaction. The 806-bed Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Florida's second largest acute care public hospital, began using iPhones this summer. Nurses could send and receive text messages, make voice calls, and receive critical care alarms, providing faster response to patient needs, hospital executives told Healthcare IT News.
