Integration of nurse call systems with wireless telephones or pagers is one of the most prevalent initiatives for hospitals and nursing directors because it improves staff productivity, reduces response times to patient requests, and helps increase overall patient satisfaction.
CarePlusTM products integrate with all communication systems and provide immediate notification to nursing staff of nursecall events on any wireless device, such as wireless telephones, pagers, PDA’s and large screen wall boards.
By automating notification to wireless devices, nursing staff receive notification that a patient is in need in less than a few seconds.

Events can be automatically sent directly to visiting specialists mobile phones as an SMS or email.
