Aged Care Range
Incorporating the CareTech IP Nurse Call & RTLS System, our Aged Care Range helps aged care providers to improve productivity, maximize funding, reduce compliance risks, and enhance quality of care.
What Makes Our Aged Care Range Stand Out?
We’re glad you asked! CareTech is ideally placed to provide your facility with the latest in IP technology through the CareTech IP Nurse Call & RTLS System as the integration between these two systems is seamless. Following are some of the finer points about our Aged Care Range:
- Both the CareTech IP and RTLS Nurse Call System are manufactured at the same location in Queensland
- CareTech IP and RTLS Nurse Call System allow real-time monitoring of each device on the network while tracking both resident and staff in each facility
- Both Inbuilt dementia and workforce tracking allows reporting on TOC (Time of Care Given) for the resident, for the staff time spent in providing care in care zones and for zones not providing care
- A system designed to leverage the reports and dashboard information provided by LAS
- Scalable system using various technology infrastructures
- A system that works over all mediums and can be retrofitted into existing infrastructure
- RTLS can automatically identify and track the location of both your residents and staff within the facility
Owned, Operated, and Manufactured in Brisbane, Australia
The Aged Care Range which includes the CareTech IP Nurse Call & RTLS System is owned, operated and manufactured in Brisbane, Australia. The Range providing the latest in IP technology is owned and operated by the same Australian owned and operated parent company as LAS, so you can expect integration between the two systems in the range to be seamless.The manufacturing plant and warehouse holds about $750,000 of stock at any given time and both facilities are available for inspection.
Real-Time Monitoring of Each Device
The CareTech IP & RTLS nurse call system allow real-time monitoring of each device on the network while tracking both resident and staff in each facility.
The Ability to Report on Time of Care Given (TOC)
Both Inbuilt dementia and workforce tracking allows reporting on TOC (Time of Care Given) for the resident, for the staff time spent in providing care in care zones and for zones not providing care.
Designed for LAS Reporting
The Real Time Location system (RTLS) is specifically designed to leverage the reports and dashboard information provided by LAS. RTLS is designed to sit over the infrastructure allowing LAS reporting, and data collection can occur even inside an older facility using legacy infrastructure.
A Range of Solutions
CareTech offer a range of hardware and infrastructure solutions from IP / Wi-Fi, Radio, RS485, and contact driven.Each call point has the same look and function for the staff using it. However, CareTech will allow the leverage on infrastructure depending on the facility. The head end can be either PC based or run on a PCB board or both can be implemented for redundancy.
A Scalable and Flexible System
A true IP solution, the system is scalable using IP, Wi-Fi, Radio, RS485 technology infrastructure. Moreover, the system will work over all mediums and can be retro fitted into existing infrastructure, ensuring flexibility. The purpose of this design is to reduce total cost of ownership while maximizing the functionality of the technology infrastructure whether it is existing or new.
Automatically Identify and Track the Location of Both Residents and Staff
RTLS is utilized by the CareTech Wandering Patient Solution to automatically identify and track the location of both residents and staff within a facility. The RTLS system determines the location of staff or residents through the wireless RTLS tags worn by them and which send wireless signals to the Nurse Call points having fixed reference positions. The RTLS tags are equipped with infrared technology to ensure 100% room level accuracy, and radio frequency and cabling to send signals and cover areas where no infrared infrastructure exists.
Ensure Resident and Staff Safety
Residents can move freely around the facility with the knowledge that in the event of an emergency or when they require assistance, they can simply press a button and a message will receive by both the annunciator and the cordless handsets which are carried by the staff and which indicate the resident and the location. Safety to staff is provided in the same way. The system can also be programmed for a higher level of alarms.
The RTLS system will also track staff movements in the resident rooms and other locations to allow a Time of Care Given (TOC) report to be generated, both in room care and non-care locations. These reports can be produced in both graphical and text-based formats.Specifically, CareTech reports can be created to display planned presence or unplanned presence and cancellation of calls.
