Voalte, a clinical communication technology provider, just welcomed Kenda West to its staff. West, an expert in health information and strategic business development, was just announced as Voalte’s new chief operating officer.
West has extensive experience in this field. Most recently, she worked for Johns Hopkins Medicine, where she held both strategic and operating IT responsibilities as Chief Information Officer for the Community Division. She has also held IT leadership positions at MedStar Health in Washington, D.C., and Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md.
Prior to these positions, she was also the director of corporate strategic planning and business development at McKesson, and was also a consulting associate with Booz Allen & Hamilton, where she supported government healthcare initiatives. To say she’s got some experience in the field is actually a gross understatement – she’s definitely been around the block when it comes to working with healthcare and business professionals.
Voalte is a company that specializes in mobile applications that are used by hospital caregivers to communicate via voice and text as well as receive alarms. These helpful apps are able to ensure greater care coordination and make it possible for caregivers to spend an increased amount of time with their patients.
Trey Lauderdale, founder and president of Voalte, stated that he was ecstatic to welcome West aboard with her vast knowledge and insight, which will be beneficial to improving and expanding the company. Raving about her impressive background in the healthcare field, Lauderdale is sure that her presence will only do incredible things for this already expanding company.
The excitement has been reciprocated by West, who is thrilled to be a part of a company that is working toward enhancing caregiver communication and advocating for the importance of expediting the healthcare process. She said she is “proud to play a role in this game-changing healthcare revolution.”
