Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Launches AtHoc IWS System

AtHoc, Inc. today announced that one of the most prominent military medical centers in the world, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Launches AtHoc IWS SystemWalter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC), has successfully implemented the AtHoc Interactive Warning System (AtHoc IWS) for mass notification and interactive hospital communications.

WRNMMC of Bethesda, Md., established in 2011, brings together two renowned healthcare institutions, Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center, commonly recognized as Bethesda Naval Hospital. This consolidated revitalization has united the nation's foremost military healthcare systems on one campus, culminating in "The Nation's Medical Center," a monumental achievement in military medicine.

WRNMMC has chosen AtHoc IWS for its network-based, enterprise-wide notification and communication system as part of their commitment to providing a safe and secure environment for the dedicated care of presidents, dignitaries and wounded soldiers and their families.

Uniquely equipped for the healthcare environment, the AtHoc IWS solution enables IP-based interaction among on-premise, medical staff. Designed to reach all 12,000 personnel with the touch of a button, messages are rapidly delivered through pervasive computer desktop pop-up alerts.

"The people who come through our doors are here to heal, to stay healthy and to help others," said Terry J. Prince, U.S. Navy, WRNMMC command master chief. "The AtHoc solution helps us achieve our mission in providing world-class health care by giving us the ability to swiftly deliver hospital codes directly to key staff members. We're also able to receive replies in real time, accelerating emergency response. Installation was quick as well, with non-disruptive integration into existing infrastructure."

"We are proud and honored to provide a modern, network-based, alerting system that supports those who serve our elected leaders and, the true patriots, our wounded warriors," said Dave Brown, vice president, AtHoc Defense and Intelligence Group. "Our mass notification system brings an added dimension of confidence in an environment where fast, trusted communications among highly dispersed personnel is imperative."
