Three Healthcare Industry Leaders Join Forces to Improve Clinical Communication

Beaumont Health, Michigan’s largest health care system, enters agreement with GE Healthcare and Mobile Heartbeat to improve clinical workflow and care team communication

WALTHAM, Mass. — October 24, 2019

GE Healthcare, in partnership with Mobile Heartbeat, a leading provider of mobile health care enterprise solutions that improve clinical workflow and care team communication, today announced a signed enterprise agreement with Beaumont Health, Michigan’s largest health care system with eight hospitals, 145 outpatient sites, nearly 5,000 physicians, and 38,000 employees.

“This is healthcare in the age of the smart phone,” said GE Healthcare General Manager of Clinical Infrastructure & Informatics Nicholai Dessypris. “We now harness the accessibility to clinical data, pair it with collaboration and arrive at heightened vigilance.”

The clinical communication platform, known as MH-CURE®, has been installed in phases, beginning with one of Beaumont Health’s largest hospitals, located in Dearborn, Michigan.

“We saw more than 3,400 unique users logging into the platform in November 2018— just one month after the project went live,” said Mike Detjen, COO at Mobile Heartbeat. “More than one million text messages were sent via MH-CURE within five months of going live, which stands as a testament to the positive adoption of the tool.”

In June 2019, Beaumont proceeded with the rollout of MH-CURE at its Farmington Hills, MI, hospital.

Following the success of these major rollouts, Beaumont signed an Enterprise Agreement with GE Healthcare to continue adding Mobile Heartbeat users across its other six hospitals. Once the enterprise-wide rollout is complete in December 2020, Beaumont Health will have more than 30,000 users registered with MH-CURE.

So far, the first two rollouts that GE Healthcare led with Mobile Heartbeat have featured integrations with multiple third-party systems that must work seamlessly together.

“MH-CURE allows the patient’s care team to easily locate care team members and communicate directly with them. The software allows our team to communicate securely on mobile devices,” said Miriam Halimi, Beaumont Health Vice President, Clinical Informatics.

Beaumont Health’s eight hospitals are located across Michigan in Dearborn, Farmington Hills, Grosse Point, Royal Oak, Taylor, Trenton, Troy and Wayne. The Trenton campus will go live in December 2019 with plans to roll out Royal Oak quickly thereafter in early 2020.
