BLOOMFIELD, Connecticut, March 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Rauland-Borg, the leader in Healthcare Nurse Call Systems and Visonic Technologies a global provider of scalable Active RFID/RTLS based safety, security and management solutions for the healthcare industry announce the integration of Elpas RTLS technology with the Responder 5 Nurse Call System. This joint collaboration between Visonic Technologies and Rauland-Borg provides Responder 5 with real-time staff presence functionality throughout the hospital to room and sub-room level accuracy, automatic visual indication that a patient's needs are being responded to and automatic nurse call cancellation.
The ability to locate caregivers is one of the primary challenges hospitals face when it comes to streamlining the delivery of safe and effective care. Improving staff response times to emergencies and special situations is a great example of how Elpas RTLS technology using existing wired or wireless Ethernet/Wi-Fi networks can be applied to benefit hospitals using the Responder 5 Nurse Call system. 'Knowing the location of the required caregiver or location of where the medical incident is occurring to room level and with sub-room level precision in real-time, can mean a world of difference to the medical outcome" said Harry Murray, President Visonic Technologies America. "Besides improving the quality of patient care, the combination of Elpas RTLS with Responder 5 will also help hospitals reduce the amount of manual reporting required from staff and facilitate care giver guideline compliance.
Hospitals may easily leverage their Elpas RTLS investment to enhance other areas of patient and personnel safety including infant/baby protection in maternity wards, staff attack/duress alerting and wandering patient supervision. Elpas Active RFID/RTLS can also be scaled to manage mobile medical assets in order to reduce shrinkage and lower maintenance related labor costs without degradation to RTLS Responder-5 functionality.
