NEAT technology is ready to help healthcare personnel in the COVID-19 crisis

Deployment of wireless patient-nurse call system in record time.

At Neat we are aware that the coronavirus health crisis that Spain and other countries are going through requires immediate and forceful solutions that facilitate its management and contribute to improving the care of patients.

Faced with this need, Neat makes available to sites enabled for the care of coronavirus patients such as field hospitals, medicalized hotels, etc. its wireless patient-nurse call system, a simple and effective technology.

At this time of crisis, it is required that the setting up of temporary hospitals be ready quickly and efficiently. The implementation of this wireless solution is carried out in a few hours without affecting the pace of work of professionals, so that this system collaborates in responding to the urgent needs of healthcare.

Neat’s intention is to collaborate in supporting the organization of work in a more effective way, alleviating the burden on health personnel and allowing them to offer more complete and higher quality care.

The solution is completely wireless and consists of bed and bath buttons for patients and receivers for healthcare personnel.

The push buttons can be attached or hung on the beds. The patient only has to pull the device or press a button to request assistance. Since the receivers are portable, professionals are fully mobile and can receive the patient’s call at any point in the healthcare facility where they are.

In Italy, Neat has joined the support of field hospitals installed in the areas most affected by the COVID-19. The Italian government has asked our technology distributor in that country for hospital management equipment to support healthcare. More than 500 patient devices and dozens of receivers for medical personnel are already in operation.

Marco Belleri, Sales Director of Exhibo, Neat’s technology distribution company in Italy, showed that this solution is demonstrating its effectiveness in responding to the health crisis in Italy by helping professionals offer faster and more complete care « This type of equipment is normally used in field hospitals or, in general, in all those emergency situations where a fast, safe and mobile system is needed to help patients admitted to corridors, premises or makeshift facilities not equipped with a nurse-call system ». From Neat “we want to help mitigate this crisis as soon as possible,” he said.

Undoubtedly, the coronavirus crisis that plagues all regions requires that companies that manufacture social health technology and the rest of the sectors of society be responsible and work to overcome this situation among all.

At Neat, from our position, we will continue adding with our contribution by doing what we have known for more than 30 years: offering solutions that help the most fragile and those who need our support the most.

In this regard, Carballo stressed that “the massive data processing, Big Data, makes it possible to trace habits and trends which will allow us to know better where the improvement of services is potential” and therefore collaborate in increasing security and quality of life of people. “The well-used data processing is shown as a disruptive technology,” he said.

In addition, Carballo has presented a Neat success story, which combines technology and the best geriatric assistance. The company has launched a solution, with the highest technology, in ten nursing homes in Madrid, to better control these spaces and prevent residents from leaving the centers without supervision.

ALMA, Assisted Living Management Application

ALMA smallALMA is a state of the art cloud based Alarm Management System leveraging zero installation for faster deployments and advanced analysis on the information.

This solution, which is marketed worldwide, is mainly intended to be used in nursing homes , hospitals and group living environments.

According to Antonio Palmero, product manager of ALMA, the solution will provide a great service to those care centers distributed in different buildings, because thanks to the use of mobile terminals, voice communications (between patients and professionals) will be improved and the coverage of the solution will be extended. These improvements enable that, having only one alarm reception center, alarms can be managed and distributed to professionals located in different parts of the center.

The system does not require installation and guarantees a wide coverage, low maintenance costs and interoperability with other systems. ALMA offers a multi-channel communication by taking advantage of the benefits that WIFI, 3G / 4G allow in the handling of data and the advantages that GSM and VoIP offer in the communication with voice.

Additionally, it includes a mobile application with voice assistance service that allows carrying out an intelligent attention to alarms in any place and at any time.

By using NFC tags and/or BT beacons operations such as presence / ready, location and door opening can be performed.

D-CALL II, designed for establishing 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.
