By their very nature, hospitals are at the forefront of emergency situations, yet they themselves are at high risk of disruption. Emergency preparedness and patient safety are top priorities in America's 7,569 hospitals and healthcare institutions, which must be able to notify staff and the public instantly and reliably in the event of a crisis.
The REACT system is a proven solution for speeding alerts, notifications and instructions to specific recipients based on their responsibilities and location during critical events. REACT transmits over the hospital's IP network to targeted groups using voice, video, or text, and can be launched from desktops, telephones or wireless devices-or triggered automatically through integration with leading security management or fire systems. Multiple, concurrent alerts keep pace with quickly evolving situations and convey detailed procedures, including diagrams, photos, video and voice instructions. The result is instantaneous, accurate notification and management of hospital emergencies, including:
- missing patients
- infant abductions
- disturbed or threatening persons
- natural disasters
- criminal activity
- medical code alerts and patient alarms
- fire alerts
- hazmat alerts
- hospital overflow updates
- epidemic alerts
- physician scheduling
- IT systems status
- evacuation and mustering instructions
REACT's coordinated crisis response improves patient safety, limits liability and contains cost, while enhancing patient, visitor, and staff satisfaction.
