Austin, TX, August 10, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Across Healthcare, a healthcare innovation company will assist national hospital systems that are supplying their employees with Apple Watches to improve patient care. Numerous hospitals and integrated delivery systems are looking to deploy the Apple Watch to their physicians, nurses, and other healthcare employees. Most people think of the Apple Watch as a predominantly consumer facing device; however, it recently has garnered increasing potential in the enterprise and healthcare domains. "To this day hospitals still rely heavily on paging to notify physicians of critical patient situations. Through the Apple Watch we want to give healthcare professionals the best real-time notification and information to better treat patients," says Johnathan Samples, CEO Across Healthcare and former CIO of Greenway Medical.
The biggest limitation to the Apple Watch operating successfully in the hospital environment remains the device’s limited battery capacity. In order to extend the battery life of the Apple Watch, Across Healthcare has partnered with Reserve Strap Inc., a manufacturer of battery bands that extend the Apple Watch’s charge by over 150%. The Reserve Strap will ensure even the busiest healthcare professionals are able to utilize his or her Apple Watch all day and every day without running out of battery.
