Making it easier for managing two-way communication between nurses and the patients, LSCI has innovated Rauland Responder 5, a clinical workflow platform orchestrating life safety communications. Responder connects every touch-point of care throughout the medical facility. With Rauland Responder 5, the right person gets the right call every time. This means whenever a patient requires medical attention, the appointed nurse can be informed directly and if the patient needs room service, a caretaker can be notified, thus saving nurse’s time and avoiding convoluted situations. Also, it can notify nurses of any upcoming check-up or procedure that is due at that time. Unlike most hospitals, where patients use an alarm to call for help, Rauland Responder 5 can perform direct communication with the relevant person for the job. With touch of a button a nurse can be reached, a nurse can contact other hospital staff, a call can be forwarded or canceled, and measure real-time performance against goals.
In Healthcare – interoperability is not a luxury, it is a requirement.
Our products embrace an open system standard based architecture rather than a proprietary architecture, rapidly integrating 3rd party applications and product technologies—making interoperability simple
In just a few short years, nurse call has moved from a “tactical utility investment” to the second most strategic investment to drive predictable outcomes, second only to EHR and likely to pass it this year in terms of ROI. One hospital realized the ‘call-bell’ systems were actually causing stress to their patients due to its boisterous nature, frequently utilized nurse’s time for small, non-clinical requests that could be handled by a caretaker. On acquiring Rauland Responder 5, they could achieve 2 way communications, allowing separate call requests between registered nurse and a caretaker promoting a healing stress free environment. After implementing this technology, the hospital staff was more productive and in return, saved time, effort, and money.
Making use of latest technology and innovative ideas, Rauland Responder 5 has spread its reach across two-thirds of medical institutions in Texas. LSCI has recently acquired Houston’s Halco Life Safety Systems Inc.
