Case Study Protecting an Aging Population With Cloud-Based Wireless Nurse Call
Fire Protection Engineering
As the North American population ages, an ever-increasing number of
facilities catered to the needs of older people are being established.
As a result, Personal Emergency Response (also known as "Nurse Call")
systems are becoming more and more widespread. Used heavily throughout
residential homes, assisted living, long term care and acute care
facilities, Nurse Call systems enhance patient safety, reduce staff
response times, and increase peace of mind for relatives.
Mircom's MiCare is the world's first cloud-based Nurse Call as a Service (NCaaS)
solution for care facilities ranging from retirement to acute care.
MiCare peripherals connect via smart gateways to cloud servers,
providing alerts and reporting in real-time. From two-way voice
response, to 100% accurate ultrasonic locating, to timely centralized
reporting, MiCare combines the best of current technologies into a
wireless MESH platform.
smart gateway enables cloud-based services while maintaining redundancy
in the facility in the case of Internet interruption. The product is
entirely web-based, therefore not requiring any software installations.
As a result, cross-platform usage by tablets and smart phones is simple.
also provides a unique and cost-effective financial model for facility
owners, allowing them to match their revenues to expenses by only
activating rooms that are occupied, thereby creating the first NCaaS
MiCare is changing the
face of care-giving by reducing patient stress, improving well-being,
and ultimately making facilities less bed-centric. MiCare reporting is
centralized and archived on the cloud, allowing for analytics that
identify care trends and help facility managers act on data, improving
services. Coming down the pipeline, MiCare is adding a non-intrusive
predictive fall alert system.
