Spectralink Corporation (Spectralink), the wireless solutions provider for the workplace, has announced the availability of Spectralink REACH, a seamless integration solution bringing together nurse call systems and wireless handsets. The company also announced a partnership with Rauland-Borg to offer the REACH solution through Rauland's valued network of distribution channel partners.
Spectralink's partnership with Rauland-Borg seamlessly brings together Spectralink handsets with Rauland-Borg's Responder® 5 Direct Connect nurse call solution into a single offering. Through this partnership, Spectralink has developed specialized handsets that match the design of the Rauland-Borg Responder 5 system and incorporate the Rauland-specific alerts and ringtones nurses are familiar with and prefer. The handset will be distributed through Rauland's selling partners.
Spectralink REACH unites nurse call systems and Spectralink wireless handsets to deliver patient calls and alerts to mobile staff from any in-building location. With unique ringtones that help fight alarm fatigue and prioritize response, REACH allows nurses to have a constant connection to patient needs, further reducing response times and improving job satisfaction for nurses, and creating peaceful, efficient environments to improve patient care.
"When nurses, doctors and support staff get the information they need in real time, everyone responds faster to time sensitive requests," said Mike Lanciloti, Spectralink Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. "We have strategically partnered with Rauland-Borg to provide seamless mobile communications throughout healthcare environments, further improving the quality of care."
"This important relationship with Spectralink is one more solution from Rauland that enables nurses to feel close to their patient's bedside, even when they are not physically there," said Maureen Pajerski, VP of Marketing & Sales at Rauland-Borg. "It's one more step in Responder's history of revolutionizing the way nurses work and the way nursing teams work together."
