Vitalcare is Australia’s leading provider of aged care technology and has been at the forefront of the industry for over 30 years. Vitalcare has recently designed a radically new generation nurse call platform specifically for the Australian health and aged care sector’s needs. The system is designed to provide feature-rich versatility and capacity, and it’s engineered from the ground up to improve workflow from the bedhead to the corporate office, providing better patient care, risk mitigation, and investment return.
Vitalcare’s new wired, wireless and hybrid is called Felix and uses modern protocols to provide a smorgasbord of connectivity, including IoT (LoRa based), Bluetooth, Zigbee, NFC (Near Field Communication) and WiFi off a backbone of either wireless or PoE infrastructure. The platform provides an open, scalable and modular end-to-end solution that integrates with other systems and devices. Features include voice calling (voice-activated call points), RTLS, Bluetooth device support, open API integration and high levels of remote configuration and enterprise reporting via secure cloud-based connectivity.
