How Voalte built an app that literally saves lives with Trey Lauderdale, Chief Innovation Office

If ever there is an industry that needs mobile it is healthcare — and in a hurry. The challenge is getting over the mental hurdle that wireless and mobile aren’t ready for the demands of the job and that the healthcare industry is full of laggards and luddites not willing to take the leap to our brave new new world.

Enter Voalte and Trey Lauderdale.

Starting with the basic premise of not inventing the killer app but making one that saves lives, focusing on a few services and doing them exceptionally well (Voalte stands of VOice, ALarm, TExt) and integrating into the existing work process is where they started.

With Trey and his great team of the helm, we explore what comes next for this next generation healthcare hero.
