Jeron Announces Cross Platform Provider 790 and Provider 680 Nurse Call System Integration

Jeron Electronics Systems Inc. announces an integration path that delivers LAN-based advanced data features of its recently-introduced Provider 790 nurse call system to Provider 680 customers.

    CHICAGO, IL, April 03, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today Myles Cochran, Marketing Director at Jeron Electronic Systems, Inc., announced an integration path supporting the state-of-the-art networked features of their newest Provider 790 nurse call solution for their very popular Provider 680 nurse call platform. This new integration brings the very latest LAN-based staff scheduling, real-time activity monitoring, and activity reporting features to the large installed base of Provider 680 systems.

The Provider 680 to 790 bridge software and Provider 790 networked applications run on a facility's LAN giving staff access to this new functionality from any Windows computer on the network. "This integration allows hospitals to get the real, tangible benefits of the very latest 790 network-based software features", noted Cochran, "without the large capital outlay of replacing their Provider 680 nurse call systems. If the facility is transitioning from Provider 680 to 790, they can immediately tie the two systems together for the networked features and then choose to replace the 680 systems on their own time-frame based on the facility's needs and budget."

The Provider 790 networked applications are designed to simplify implementation and maintenance while giving access to everyone. The networked software design means no software to maintain on local computers while the unlimited licensing sets no restraints on the number of users concurrently access the networked features. These enhanced options available through of the Provider 680 to 790 bridge software include:

"Everywhere" Alerting and Monitoring through PC Console
The software offers a wide range of nurse call activity viewing by one, several or all call priorities and one or more nursing units or facility-wide with a choice of three customizable views:
- List View - indicates all active patient and staff calls for one, several or all Nursing Units
- Whiteboard View - a list of all rooms/beds within a specific Unit showing all information and events associated with the room/bed including patient information, call activity, assigned caregivers, service requests, and caregivers present
- Map View - a graphical floor view of call activity, staff presence and service requirements

Patient Call Activity and Staff Response Monitoring and Reporting through Executive Information System (EIS)
From any computer on the facility's LAN, administrators and managers can access the Jeron EIS software to generate reports that detail staff response to patient calls from across the facility, within a specific unit or down to an individual patient room. Users can also generate reports to spot trends in staff response times, track staff activity or monitor a sequence of interactions with an individual patient. Reports can be generated on the fly or scheduled for automatic email delivery to keep fresh data in front of manager.

Automatic Voice-Prompt Overhead Paging
Emergency events, such as Code, Bed Exit, and Bath Emergency can automatically voice announce over the public address system within the nursing unit or throughout the facility to alert caregivers and teams. The automated page voice prompt includes the room number, call priority, and instructions.

LAN-Based Staff to Patient Assignments
From any Windows computer on the LAN, managers can oversee staff to patient assignments and create custom response teams to higher priority calls such as Code and Bath Emergency. Calls from patients automatically route to the caregiver's wireless device (SIP Phone or Pocket pager) while overtime calls automatically route to backup team members.
