Grand River Hospital – How Do You Monitor 300 Alarms, Improve Patient Safety and Increase Staff Peace of Mind

Before implementing Connexall, Grand River staff depended on a variety of creative, albeit manual, solutions to ensure device functionality, patient safety and security. The trouble was that these solutions were not automated, and the success of these strategies often depended on human intervention and memory or well-placed notes. Budget constraints are always a challenge for administrators, but Grand River Hospital saw the potential to use the power of Connexall to integrate disparate technology without the cost of investing in all-new equipment.

“We now have improved reliability, a reduction in manual intervention, increased mobility and improved, quicker decision making as well as a comprehensive audit capability.”
