Reliable And Efficient Nurse Call System

By Kaarina Päivinen

Iiwari_Care_blog_pic

Iiwari’s UWB technology, ensured reliability, integration with other systems, and user feedback have solidified its Nurse Call system’s competitive advantage in the healthcare sector.

What makes Iiwari’s solution such a reliable and efficient nurse call system?

 

Not all wireless nurse call systems are reliable

There is a perception in the healthcare industry that wireless nurse call systems are not always reliable. For example, Bluetooth-based systems have not always met expectations when nurse alarms have not gone through as expected, because e.g. the body blocks or dampens the signal when it is between the transmitter and the receiver. Generally, there is only one receiver in the coverage area, and therefore the passage of the message can be blocked.

Iiwari’s Solution: UWB Technology

Iiwari’s system works with UWB radio technology, which uses a very wide frequency range, which reduces the interference caused by other devices. This makes it more reliable in environments with a lot of wireless signals. In addition, UWB radio signals are more resistant to multipath effects, where signals are reflected from environmental surfaces and cause interference. This improves signal reliability, especially indoors.

Ensured Reliability

The operational reliability of Iiwari’s wireless nurse call system has been ensured by many different means. The signal of pressing the alarm button is always received by at least three base stations, so the signal will definitely reach its destination. In addition, each alert message is sent several times to ensure that they reach their destination reliably.

An easy way to test the functionality of the positioning in your own or the customer’s premises is the Indoor Positioning Starter Kit for Healthcare »

Integration with Management Systems

Integration of the location system into management systems is crucial for larger facilities. Iiwari’s system offers an open API interface, making integration with other systems like HIS (Hospital Information System) or HMS (Healthcare Management System) easy.

User Experience Confirms the Effectiveness

In Norway and Finland, Iiwari’s Nurse Call system has received positive feedback from nurses who use the system. Nurses have found the system reliable and easy to use, which has improved the safety of both nurses and patients.

For example, in the municipality of Kvinesdal, based on the recommendations of the caretakers of two nursing homes, the caretakers of the nursing home in the third municipality demanded the same system for themselves. After only two months of use, the care home Lähde in Rovaniemi, Finland, gave great feedback:

Iiwari’s Nurse Call system is the best we have ever used” –Marja-Liisa Tervo, Director of the care home Lähde

Improving Work and Patient Safety

Iiwari’s Nurse Call system provides nurses with an easy way to request assistance using location identification, which is immediately visible and audible on colleagues’ mobile phones’ locked screens. This speeds up assistance in challenging situations, enhancing the safety of both nurses and patients. Use cases for the system range from dangerous situations with aggressive patients to emergencies requiring additional nursing staff.

Conclusion

Iiwari Tracking Solutions offers a reliable and efficient solution for nurse call systems. Its UWB technology, ensured reliability, integration with other systems, and user feedback have solidified its competitive advantage in the healthcare sector.
