Samsung has partnered with CellTrust to offer pager replacement for physicians solution, PULSE designed to alleviate communication challenges in healthcare.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a leading mobile device and consumer electronics provider and CellTrust Corporation, a global leader in secure mobile communication and Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program (SEAP) Gold Partner, announced their collaboration to offer a Pager Replacement Solution for Critical Healthcare Communication.
With the demand for legacy paging services declining, many progressive hospitals around the world have adopted or are actively looking into implementing advanced communication methods to replace devices such as pagers.
CellTrust PULSE™, developed specifically for healthcare organizations, features secure two-way paging, secure text messaging and secure voice calls. CellTrust PULSE can be activated on the latest range of Samsung mobile smartphones, tablets and wearable devices to provide healthcare professionals with a pager replacement and secure mobile communication solution for critical and highly sensitive healthcare communication 24/7 – in one device.
PULSE is comprised of the following features:
- Secure Mobile Information Management (SMIM) Platform
- SecureSMS® Gateway
- Healthcare Communication Integration Server (HCCIS)
- PULSE Operator/Nursing Portal
- A suite of secure mobile apps for smartphones
Embedded within the CellTrust SecureCore, the HCCIS provides direct access to CellTrust’s own secure global Short Message Service (SMS) gateway. Critical communication is rapidly transmitted and each message type is archived, simplifying data tracking.
In addition, with the user-friendly, interactive, web-based Operator/Nursing Portals, healthcare professionals can quickly communicate patient information through secure text messages and emails. Using ActiveSync or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) technology, medical personnel are simply a click away and can inform staff if the person is available in real time. Medical staff can feel confident that their communications and critical patient health information are secure and will be delivered to the right person at the correct time.
“Samsung is pleased to partner with CellTrust to meet the pager replacement needs of healthcare organizations around the world,” said Jongshin Kim, Vice President of Enterprise Business Team at Samsung Electronics. “CellTrust’s multi-channel approach to mobile healthcare communication delivers the speed, security and redundancy lacking with conventional pagers. Wearable mobile communication devices have the potential to save critical seconds with highly effective cross-team messaging and immediate access to patient health information. CellTrust is also one of the key partners among Samsung Solutions Exchange, launched recently to better serve our enterprise customers with optimized solutions delivery.”
CellTrust PULSE activated on Samsung mobile devices uses DATA/WiFi and a unique failover channel to provide a constant and dependable connection to compensate for hospital communication dead spots. Resilient messaging is also provided, ensuring timely messages are delivered to the right person at the correct time. If a signal is weak or the recipient is in a dead zone, communications are routed through multiple channels for redundancy and failover. The sender also receives confirmation on the mobile device that the message was delivered, opened and/or deleted. In addition, communication records are archived for future use, if needed.
“Expediting critical patient communication and ensuring that it gets there is vitally important,” said Sean Moshir, CEO and Chairman, CellTrust Corporation. “CellTrust is pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Samsung to meet the needs of healthcare organizations around the globe as they transition from legacy pagers to enterprise-level mobile healthcare communication running on state of the art device technology.”
CellTrust PULSE will be on display at the HIMSS Annual Conference in Orlando, February 24-27, CellTrust booth # 5883, and at the Samsung booth # 503 with members of the CellTrust team demonstrating the Application running on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear devices.
