Provider 680 Touchscreen Nurse Console

… the new 6865 Touchscreen Nurse Console gives users full access to all the system features in a smaller more economically- priced console.

Jeron Electronic Systems announced today that it is adding a new Touchscreen Nurse Console to its popular Provider 680® nurse call system.

According to Jeron Marketing VP Ericka Baran, “Our customers really like the ease of use of a touchscreen, but found that the Provider 680 standard 15” touchscreen was just too big for some nursing stations and charting areas. To meet their needs, we designed the new 6865 Touchscreen Nurse Console to give users full access to all the system features in a smaller, more economically priced console.”

In addition to the touchscreen operation, the new console’s compact design allows for either desk or wall mounting. The new console is backward compatible with existing Provider 680 systems, allowing customers to easily add the benefit of touchscreen operation to their systems. The smaller size, wall-mounting option, and lower price gives facilities the flexibility to place more nurse consoles throughout the unit, streamlining communications and combating staff fatigue.

The 6865 Touchscreen Nurse Console provides:

  •     Embedded technology designed for continuous operation
  •     5.7" LCD touchscreen display with long life LED backlight
  •     Simultaneous display of up to 128 calls or room/bed status indications
  •     Touchscreen menu-driven navigation with English prompts
  •     Tactile buttons for the most common operations
  •     Call-in tone mute and tone level adjustment
  •     Choice of handset or push-to-talk communication
  •     CAT 5E/6 connection cables
  •     Continuous self-diagnostics and alerting of console or station failure
  •     Minimal desktop footprint design with wall-mount option

The Jeron Provider 680 Nurse Call System addresses facility-wide staff and patient communication needs for today and well into the future. It incorporates advanced technology that streamlines communication to improve patient care and staff satisfaction while minimizing installation and maintenance costs. Patient to staff and staff to staff communication is maximized through integration with wireless phones, pocket pagers, and Real Time Locating.

The Touchscreen Nurse Console for Provider 680 will be available for general release in the summer of 2011.
