                <p>AÂ Nurse Call System allows patients in health
care settings to alert a nurse or other health care staff members when
they are in need of assistance. A signal alerts staff at the nurse's
station, and usually, a nurse or nurse assistant responds to such a
call. Most systems simply beep or buzz at the station or flash an alert
on a computer screen. This requires a staffer to constantly monitor the
system at the nurse's station or actually visit the patient's room to
determine the patient's needs.</p>
<p>Nurse Call Integration is an application that connects Nurse Call
Systems to mobile communication systems and other communication
platforms. This is done through a real-time communication system often
called <a rel="nofollow" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackPageview',

target="_blank" title="Integrated Messaging Solutions">nurse call
integration middleware</a>. Middleware is powerful technology that
provides the messaging backbone for critical alarm and event management
in thousands of hospitals today. Â Nurse Call integration enables the
Nurse Call System to send its many alerts, in a message format, to mobile
and other communication devices.</p>

<p>There are currently many different types of communication devices in
use at hospitals today. These devices include pagers, DECT phones, Wi-Fi
enabled phones, email enabled devices, Smart phones, LED display signs,
Cell phones and traditional desk top phones. Each of these devices
provides varying levels of messaging capability.  Most will display a
text message which typically includes the location or room number and the
time the alarm was initiated, as well as the type of alarm generated.
 Some systems allow hospital staff to communicate directly to the
patient, while more sophisticated devices allow the staff members to
acknowledge, decline, escalate or forward the messages.</p>
<p>Nearly all nurse call integration middleware applications allow for
multiple connections to disparate alarm and communication systems. In
addition to nurse call systems, it provides a common platform for linking
your mobile staff with point-of-care alerts from patient monitoring,
pulse oximetry, ventilators, infant abduction, lab systems, as well as
safety systems for fire, security, building management, and others. Not
only does it streamline communication, but it simplifies the IT hassles
involved with managing many disparate systems. These systems also
provide comprehensive reporting of all events, including time/date
stamps, recipients, and their responses.</p>
<p>There are many reasons for hospitals to implement Nurse Call
Integration systems. They allow hospital staff to be mobile and more
efficient by reducing unnecessary trips to the nursing station or the
patient's room. Direct communications between patients and nurses reduces
the response times to patient requests helping to increase overall
patient and staff satisfaction. All of these things combined can lead to
improved patient safety and can even mean the difference between life and
