Voxello’s first publication indicating the economic impact of communication barriers in hospitals has been accepted by the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA). The publication emphasizes the importance of creating effective communication channels for patients that cannot speak or use common nurse call systems due to their conditions. The results of creating effective communications paths for this vulnerable patient population leading to profound outcomes on reducing preventable adverse events and creating cost savings for hospitals of $6.8 billion each year in the United States.

Voxello has released two new case studies highlighting the clinical and operational impact the noddle system is having at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC), a Level 1, 811-bed hospital. These case studies highlight the experiences of Matthew Howard, MD, Chair and DEO or Neurosurgery and Jolyn Schneider, BSN, RN PCCN, Intensive and Specialty Services, Burn/Trauma Center at UIHC.
“The noddle helps us to provide a higher standard of care. It decreases the patient’s frustration with not being able to communicate with us effectively. I believe use of the noddle makes a patient feel that UIHC is doing the best it can to provide them quality care,” says Jolyn.
