Where technologies such as Nurse Call, Electronic Care Management, E-Medication Management, Building Management Systems, clinical alarms, real-time location systems and messaging alert devices talk to each other, you can optimise resources and manage risk more effectively than where each of these technologies operates as a standalone system.
Multiple benefits can be highlighted by a simple example of integration such as interfacing Nurse Call with a wandering system. Save time, cost and drive efficiencies by freeing staff up to go about their business knowing that over-threshold activity is monitored and reported in real time to the notification device of your choice (e.g. pager). Manage risk with 24/7 eyes-on technology. Enhance customer satisfaction by allowing residents to stay in familiar surroundings for longer. Drive revenue by retaining residents for longer. Provide improved continuity of care where a secure bed is kept for a higher level of need. Save cost where two technologies share the same infrastructure.
To avoid results being disappointing with the implementation of systems which can be hard to use or do not work together as planned, NCS has the systems integration capability to ensure that solutions have the ability, where required, to interface with the various other systems the customer will be using. Once this has been achieved, we ‘go live’ in a test-bench environment to satisfy ourselves beyond all reasonable doubt that the technology works together as planned. From there, we are able to assist with detailed specification and design required for pricing and implementation.
