Digital ecosystem, infinite possibilities

The transition from the analogue to the digital world offers a great challenge to technology companies and service providers: they must be able to offer a powerful and secure platform that supports socio-health products and services.

In its constant commitment to innovation, Neat has not hesitated to respond to this challenge and has therefore developed a digital ecosystem based on the cloud. This ecosystem integrates the digital devices of homes, residential centers and service centers with other systems and services such as monitoring centers, mobile applications, web portals and information management solutions.

Likewise, digital transformation, as a disruptive process, has given Neat the opportunity to reconstruct its strategies and to create completely renewed service models, adapted to people and current and future needs.

D-CALL II, designed for establish communication between users and professionals in residential care centers

D-CALL II is a nurse call system that allows patients in healthcare centers to communicate from their room or common areas with professionals through a voice call. D-CALL II is recommended for both, nursing homes and hospitals, and even sheltered homes.

D-CALL II

How does it work?

The user can trigger an alarm by pressing any of the alarm devices such as bathroom pull devices or call buttons. Furthermore, the alarm can be initiated automatically thanks to any of the sensors such as smoke and gas detectors or door and window sensors.

When the alarm has been launched, a sequence of calls to pre-programmed telephones is initiated. This ensures the professionals will answer the call because, if the first telephone has not been able to answer the call, it will jump to the next number and so on until it is answered.

When one of the telephones answers the call, a voice conversation is initiated with the patient through the call terminal installed in the room. The power of the D-CALL II speaker and the sensitivity of its microphone have been designed to provide the user with a high quality audio experience, which results in a more efficient service.

Advantages:

D-CALL II is an easy installation system since it does not require wiring or works. In addition, it facilitates the mobility of professionals throughout the center since calls are received on wireless phones. Likewise, it has other advantages that make it extremely interesting for centers such as data encryption and long battery life.

Alarm View Point, the innovative alarm viewer

Neat Group presents its new software for healthcare centers. An innovative alarm display that simplifies the work of professionals and improves care response times.

Alarm View Point 2Alarm View Point is an application designed to show the states through which an alarm passes after being triggered by the user until a professional attends to it. The information can be displayed on different devices such as on a PC, a Tablet or a LED Display in care environments such as nursing homes, hospitals, etc. This solution works in an integrated way with the alarm management systems D-SERVER and D-TECT Alarm.

In order to optimize the management of alarms and their efficient distribution, this application makes it possible to create groups of devices, (for example, floor 1, floor 2, etc.) taking into account whether it is an assistance alarm, such as user alarms, or if it is a technical alarm, such as maintenance alarms.

How does it work?

When a user triggers an alarm, the information will be displayed on two systems; the mobile devices carried by professionals (TREX) and the viewer on which all alarms appear with information on who has sent the alarm, from where it has been released and from what device (shooter bath, room button, smoke detector, etc.).

The information shown on the viewer can be configured to follow the evolution of the alarm according to a colour pattern. Thus, in its standard configuration, when an alarm is released, the information will appear white on the display; When one of the professionals accepts the alarm on their TREX devices, the information will change into green; When the professional is present in the room, it will appear in yellow and, finally, when the performance is over, the alarm will disappear from the viewer. In addition, emergency alarms, such as a smoke alarm, will be displayed in red and will have a priority position in the viewfinder.

Moreover, in this version, the alarm information can be represented in the form of a blueprint, which facilitates its visualization by professionals.

Advantages

Alarm View Point allows custom groups configuration that can be easily performed. In addition, it is possible to add specific locations and specific alarm types for each group. The colours and sounds of the information can be configured to determine the degree of emergency for each alarm.

The information is shown with such clarity that allows a much faster user care.

The Alarm View Point installation is simple and works in an integrated way with the D-SERVER and D-TECT ALARM. At the same time, to ensure the security of the application, all alarm information is encrypted.
