Transcript of " Nurse call software where and why"

  1. 1. Nurse Call System Software Selecting Why & Where to use it © Copyright QBsoft Solutions June 2009
  2. 2. What is Nurse Call Software? <ul><li>Actual heart of a PC-based nurse call system </li></ul><ul><li>Provides added functionality or interfaces for non PC-based nurse call systems. </li></ul><ul><li>Pocket Paging Interface </li></ul><ul><li>Wireless Phone/PDA interface </li></ul><ul><li>Management Reporting </li></ul><ul><li>On-screen display of call information </li></ul><ul><li>Event to device assignments </li></ul><ul><li>Messaging </li></ul><ul><li>Email interface </li></ul>
  3. 3. Nurse Call Software Listings (UL/CSA/NFPA…) <ul><li>The software is not listed to the UL1069 or similar CSA listing of the nurse call system itself. </li></ul><ul><li>The software is not required for the nurse call system to operate and is only considered ancillary equipment. </li></ul>Except for PC-based nurse call systems:
  4. 4. Types of Software <ul><li>Stand-alone – resides on a single PC only </li></ul><ul><li>Client/Server-based – a central server is used and client software must be installed and/or registered on networked PC’s that connect to the server </li></ul><ul><li>Browser-based – a web-type browser server resides on the network and networked PC’s can access the server from virtually any web-browser. (no additional software needs to be installed on remote PC’s) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Nurse Call Software Uses <ul><li>The software allows nurse call events to be sent as text messages to wireless pocket pagers, phones, PDA’s etc. </li></ul><ul><li>The software may also allow nurse call events to be sent as text messages to outside Email </li></ul><ul><li>The software reads alarm information from alarm systems (such as a nurse call or fire alarm system) and relays alarm messages as text messages. </li></ul>MESSAGING INTERFACES
  6. 6. Nurse Call Software Uses <ul><li>The software can be used for staff to assign nurse call events to wireless devices </li></ul><ul><li>Assignments can be: </li></ul>ASSIGNMENTS <ul><li>Static – assigned once and never changed </li></ul><ul><li>Dynamic – needing staff to log-in to make changes to which calls they will receive that day </li></ul><ul><li>Scheduled – changed automatically by time of day </li></ul>
  7. 7. Nurse Call Software Uses <ul><li>The software can be used by staff to send manually entered text messages to staff pagers, phones, etc.. This operates similarly to Microsoft’s Messenger service. </li></ul>TEXT MESSAGING
  8. 8. Nurse Call Software Uses <ul><li>The software can be used to enhance a nurse call console and display additional information on a PC screen that might not usually fit onto a standard nurse console. </li></ul><ul><li>The console should always displays calls however. </li></ul>ON-SCREEN DISPLAY
  9. 9. Nurse Call Software Uses <ul><li>The software allows authorized staff to review event and staff response history </li></ul><ul><li>The software allows authorized staff to print and/or sort history reports or graphs </li></ul><ul><li>These are often stand-alone or Client/Server based & can rarely be done over a web-server </li></ul>MANAGEMENT REPORTING
  10. 10. Types of Software (Stand-Alone) <ul><li>Offer very limited functionality and can only be accessed from a single location </li></ul><ul><li>Usually require multiple copies of the same applications installed </li></ul>
  11. 11. Types of Software (Client/Server-Based) <ul><li>Are usually provided by the nurse call vendor </li></ul><ul><li>Usually run on a stand-alone network that is often not supported by the IT dept. May run on a hospitals’ network but often need IT to closely scrutinize/test the software </li></ul><ul><li>Most products require expensive licensing of every client that needs to connect making it very expensive </li></ul><ul><li>Need software installed on all PC’s </li></ul>
  12. 12. Types of Software (Web Browser-Based) <ul><li>Is operating system independent, runs on any PC that has a compatible web browser and network connection. </li></ul><ul><li>Are easy to deploy & maintain, as only a single server needs to be maintained </li></ul><ul><li>No software needs to be installed on networked PC’s for browser-based applications to work. </li></ul><ul><li>Greatly benefits from using the hospital LAN </li></ul>
