BlueSky Wireless – caring for the health of your hospital

In these days of increased demand for health care our response needs to become more focussed and efficient. Challenges such as lack of available beds, staff shortages and equipment failure can cause catastrophic backlogs which affect everyone from patients to front line staff, maintenance engineers to kitchen workers.

Over the years many solutions have been offered by different suppliers which each address a particular area of concern. The problems have come when you try to integrate these systems to provide an overall improvement in efficiency and cost savings.

Funding constraints mean the money is not available to scrap the existing arrangements and start again. That’s why the BlueSky Wireless solution works with existing technology, machinery and staff to provide a cost efficient, integrated resolution to the problem.

Solutions for those on front line duties

Reception areas are busy places where it is all too easy for patients and visitors to be overlooked or get lost. Connecting your different systems together using our integrated wireless system allows you to track patients from clinic to x-ray to consulting room to ward.

Accident & Emergency is a prime area for the BlueSky Wireless solution. When an emergency occurs nursing staff can be alerted, specialists called and porters put on standby, all with one simple mobile command. Integrated with existing systems our software solution allows additional features to be added at any time, helping you to keep up with advancements in technology.

Ward care is another area where intelligent programming can improve nurse and patient calls. When a call button is pressed the message will go immediately to the nurse responsible for that patient; if they are not available they can reject the call and it will automatically be redirected to the next nurse in line, until the call is accepted. Management can also be alerted to a potential staff shortage if the delay in finding help is too long.

Joined up Facilities Management

Patient transport to and from and within the hospital can be disjointed for the patient. Failure of the various systems to talk to each other often results in a patient being left to sit in a discharge area while transport is found. We can connect the various call systems in such a way that they will alert each other to provide the most sensible solution to the problem.

Facilities management within a large building or even across separate sites can be nightmare. Trying to keep track of problems, alerts and staff is time consuming and risks multiple journeys being made because someone was out of contact for a short while. We connect sensors on electrical and mechanical items such as heating, ventilation, TVs, phones and vending machines so they can send an alert signal to the nearest engineer when attention is required.

Health & Safety is extremely important. Lone workers are vulnerable; connected to BlueSky Wireless SoloTraxx they are covered by a sophisticated monitoring system which can call for help if needed. Door and fire alarms can silently alert staff when there is a potential problem, allowing time for checking before deciding on the next step.

 

With BlueSky Wireless technology there is no need to purchase completely new systems when you can combine your existing ones into a formidable working package. Our messaging systems offer advanced bolt-on technology which make your existing structures more efficient while keeping your capital costs down.
