Voalté, a leader in point-of-care communication technology, today announced that they have been recognized by Everything Channel’s CRN Magazine as one of the Top Healthcare Vendors and VARs. According to IDC Health Insights, growth in implementation of electronic medical records (EMRs) and health information exchange technologies will help spur worldwide growth of Healthcare IT spending over the next three years to $13 billion. As a result, support levels for EMRs and infrastructure technologies have heavily increased, presenting an ideal opportunity for VARs in this market. This first annual list recognizes VARs, systems integrators, consultancies, platform specialists and developers that have taken advantage of this growing market and are seeing great success in the healthcare space.
Voalté has experienced rapid growth and nationwide interest in its unique point-of-care communications solution. The first-of-its-kind smartphone application enables nurses and clinicians to send and receive text messages, make voice calls, and receive critical care alarms on the iPhone and BlackBerry, providing faster response times to patient needs.
“Increased regulations and the move to electronic health records are fueling an interest in the healthcare market,” said Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director of Everything Channel. “These 100 VARs saw the opportunity early and are now supplying healthcare providers with integrated and customized IT solutions to meet their demanding needs.”
Other recognized companies include Panasonic, Phillips, Siemens, Sprint, Toshiba and BlackBerry maker Research in Motion, Ltd.
“We are thrilled to be recognized by CRN Magazine as a key player among the world’s leading healthcare IT companies,” said Trey Lauderdale, vice president of innovation at Voalté. “We hope to continue our success and we couldn’t be more pleased with this accolade.”
