caretech nurse call system blog

Digital technology is rapidly changing the face of Nurse Call Systems right from in-home systems to the most complex hospital networks.  With Australia's aging population, care, security and quality of life are a growing area of interest.

Our blog will touch on just about any topic that is in someway related to the needs of this part of the community.  We will also keep you abreast of the latest developments in the field.  Feel free to comment on any of our posts.



CareTech Obtains ISO 9001 Certificate

Well everyone at CareTech in Sweden and globally has been working towards our ISO 9001 Certification and its finally here. 

For those of you who don't know what is evolved in ISO 9001 here's a snapshot direct from wikipedia:

ISO 9001:2008 

  • The quality policy is a formal statement from management, closely linked to the business and marketing plan and to customer needs. The quality policy is understood and followed at all levels and by all employees. Each employee needs measurable objectives to work towards.
  • Decisions about the quality system are made based on recorded data and the system is regularly audited and evaluated for conformance and effectiveness.
  • Records should show how and where raw materials and products were processed, to allow products and problems to be traced to the source.
  • You need to determine customer requirements and create systems for communicating with customers about product information, inquiries, contracts, orders, feedback and complaints.
  • When developing new products, you need to plan the stages of development, with appropriate testing at each stage. You need to test and document whether the product meets design requirements, regulatory requirements and user needs.
  • You need to regularly review performance through internal audits and meetings. Determine whether the quality system is working and what improvements can be made. Deal with past problems and potential problems. Keep records of these activities and the resulting decisions, and monitor their effectiveness (note: you need a documented procedure for internal audits).
  • You need documented procedures for dealing with actual and potential non conformances (problems involving suppliers or customers, or internal problems). Make sure no one uses bad product, determine what to do with bad product, deal with the root cause of the problem seeking and keep records to use as a tool to improve the system.
All of these things helps CareTech provide it's customers with a better quality product.....
 

Aged Care System Overhaul

Aged Care System Overhaul.

Here are some stats that we here at CareTech are a little amazed about, In just under 40 years, there will be almost four times as many Australians, or 3.6 million people, in need of aged care.

Now it looks like the Productivity Commission is urging the Government to radically overhaul the aged care sector by removing caps on residential bed numbers and charging wealthy residents more.

After reading ABC reporters Stephen Dziedzic and Samantha Hawley report   http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/01/21/3117830.htm?section=justin We throught that things are in need of change.

Dect Trade In

As a Polycom distributor CareTech can trade in OLD Dect Phones.

I was very intrested in the new range of Polycom handsets that came out but was unsure how to start selling these in our existing customers. Then Polycom have put forward a great offer to trade in your old handsets. I think this is a great way to test the water with the new product range. So if anyone would like to have a look at the new HOSPITAL specific range then give the office a call.
