Our Story

Clinicians are highly mobilized workers, so they need a simple, secure, and most importantly, contextual method for communicating to provide the highest quality care for their patients.

That’s why we built the Mobile Heartbeat platform. Our goal has been to make it as simple and easy as possible for the care team to communicate the right information at the right time, with the right level of urgency.

Since our launch in 2009, we’ve continued to provide the support and guidance facilities need to connect every colleague across the healthcare enterprise. Our unified platform eliminates common workflow bottlenecks and fosters multidisciplinary collaboration to make the coordination of patient care safer, quicker and easier than ever before.
