Indiana Hospital gets iPhone communication system

Voalte, a company that provides a unique communications system built on top of the Apple iPhone via WiFi, has added an additional hospital to their client list. Parkview General Hospital will now be utilizing the iPhone as a primary communications tool throughout their entire building.

Voalte (pronounced volt) is adding clients to their books at a fast pace, all medical-related, and they seem to be expanding their reach very quickly.  The Herald Tribune reports:

Parkview General in Fort Wayne is the fifth hospital client for Voalte, which uses the iPhone's Wi-Fi platform to pull together medical alarms, text and voice messages into one device a nurse can use from anywhere in the building.

What does this mean for Apple?  Ultimately, this adds to the headway Apple is making in the mobile enterprise space, and signals a furtherance in adoption among sensitive technological needs from respected organizations like hospitals and other primary care facilities.

I know that stepping into a hospital and seeing all of this new tech would personally make things a little less worrisome for me, but then again I'm not your average iPhone non-enthusiast. What about you, would you trust a hospital staff that stays connected to the network via their iPhone, or do you prefer the old-fashioned way?
