Nurse Call technology is evolving
At AceTek, we are passionate about the potential that technology brings to healthcare providers. Implemented well, technology can deliver time-saving efficiencies, minimises risk through improved data collection and provides more time to deliver better care for patients and residents. We are committed to integrating best-of-breed technologies that enhance and add-value to our clients’ nurse call systems. There are a number of upcoming technology releases that we will be introducing in the coming months and we’d like to share some of these with you.
Mobile devices have been available via DECT and Wi-Fi handheld phones for some time and are producing faster and improved patient services but the cost of these services has been high.
The shift towards BYOD workplaces means that many organisations are realising the benefits of increased efficiency as staff use devices that they are already familiar with. Our Android, Window and Apple applications have reached the BETA testing phase with exceptional results. The new integrated applications will allow health providers to easily access and communicate messages as well as use intelligent mobile phone handsets to perform key tasks which were only available previously via tablets and computer terminals.
The physical whiteboard has been upgraded. Digital whiteboards are the way forward improving nurse station workflow and delivering a better patient experience from check-in throughout their entire stay.
Real Time Locating System (RTLS)
RTLS integrations can be used to track patient movements in hospitals and residents in aged care facilities. This technology can also be used to improve staff safety in duress situations; as well as tracking and managing your physical assets. Seamless integration between RTLS and your nurse call technology can improve staff productivity through automatic presence monitoring – staff can be easily located on screens and mobile phones. Wandering patients and residents can be monitored, with alarms detecting and providing their actual location on annunciators and mobile devices allowing staff to easily locate them. Our RTLS solution is available now and integrates with 4 best of breed solutions including Ekahau and Ekotek.
Information dissemination must be accurate and immediate. It must also be accessible anytime, from any device, by anyone with the correct authorisation. Tacera Pulse delivers business intelligence information via an interactive dashboard, allowing data-driven decisions using current data from your organisation. Consolidated cloud based reporting, greater workflow analysis and alarm audit trails are a few of the features of this technology.
Pulse Reporting and Dashboards are accessed through a web-based portal via any desktop, tablet or mobile browser. Seamlessly integrated with your existing IT setup, dashboards and reports are highly customisable and cloud based storage ensures data is accessible from any location.
