SPOTLIGHT: Communications firm banking on mobile health

Amcom Software, an Eden Prairie, Minn.-based maker of call-center and emergency notification software, is banking on mobile healthcare to provide returns to two new venture investors. CEO Chris Heim sees a "tidal wave related to mobile healthcare" and strong demand for "unified communications" within hospitals and health systems to continue a growth track that has seen annual revenues soar to $33.7 million in March 2009 from $11.8 million just two years earlier. "A lot of what we can do is we automate some of the communications flows--if you look at, for instance, a typical nurse's time, they'll spend an hour a day trying to get ahold of people," Heim tells Finance & Commerce (Minneapolis). That includes pushing all electronic communications to a single mobile device for each caregiver. Article
