HCA, the Nashville-based hospital chain which operates HCA Parkridge Hospital and 168 other hospitals in 20 states and the United Kingdom, announced Tuesday it will buy Mobile Heartbeat, a leading developer of applications for smartphones to improve clinical workflow and team communications.

Mobile Heartbeat technology solutions consolidate clinical communications, including alarms and notifications, patient information and lab data, secure texting, voice and photography.

HCA recently completed a successful pilot of Mobile Heartbeat's CURE(Clinical Urgent Response) technology for its iMobile Project, an initiative to implement smartphone-based critical care team communications.

"Mobile Heartbeat is an innovator that is keenly focused on meeting the mobile technology needs of clinicians," said Dr. Jonathan Perlin, HCA's chief medical officer and president of the Clinical Services Group.
