Carstens is an innovator in the healthcare industry, so offering products with integrated access management for enhanced safety and accuracy is a natural progression for the company. states Rob Mossman, ISONAS's CEO
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
ISONAS Inc., the leading pure IP access control system manufacturer, has announced partnering with Chicago-based Carstens, Inc, the industry’s leading provider of wall-mounted workstations, to launch a powerful healthcare solution that is revolutionizing the industry—the WALLAroo® with ISONAS™. Carstens’s new wall-mounted workstations are now available with the advanced security of ISONAS™ “Pure IP” access control technology.
Both companies have teamed up to deliver this new and exciting technology that allows an authorized user to open locked cabinets and other access points throughout a facility with a single swipe card. “Together, Carstens and ISONAS™ are revolutionizing access control in the healthcare environment,” said John Pierson, Carstens’ senior director of sales and marketing. “WALLAroo® with ISONAS™ puts secure medication distribution, critical supply storage and patient data at the point of care with the ease of one swipe card…resulting in an enhanced patient experience.”
ISONAS™ will exclusively offer the technology on medical cabinets and mobile carts. “Carstens is an innovator in the healthcare industry, so offering products with integrated access management for enhanced safety and accuracy is a natural progression for the company,” states Rob Mossman, ISONAS’s CEO. “By interconnecting all pieces of the environment, ISONAS™ technology affords Carstens’ customers the ability to help patients in a simple and cost effective fashion.” ISONAS™ is a complete solution to securely manage an entire facility. One swipe card can control thousands of access points—doors, gates, elevators, server racks, and now WALLAroo® cabinets—all from a standard network connection. Its configurable, tiered security levels account for unlimited people, schedules and access points.
“Access control used to require dedicated wiring, a control panel and a great deal of infrastructure,” Mossman explained. “ISONAS™, on the other hand, is a one-inch-by-six-inch all in one reader controller that runs via power over Ethernet connections so no electricity or hard wiring is needed. Since it uses existing IT infrastructure, construction costs are low and disruption is minimal. It also migrates from legacy systems and supports current card technology.”
In fact, ISONAS™ costs between 25 and 30 percent less to install and integrate than its competitors. As a result, a hospital or clinic can expect a return on investment for new cabinets in a matter of months. Plus, the technology is scalable—any number of WALLAroo® wall-mounted workstations can be added to the same network at any time with no extra licensing fees or ongoing service expenses.“A major benefit for hospitals is that ISONAS™ runs on Crystal Matrix software and integrates with Active Directory for a single source of simplified permission management,” said Pierson.
All access point permissions can be programmed and managed from a centralized location; however, data is stored locally so in the event of a power outage, the locking system continues to operate. This is vital in a healthcare setting. It also integrates with video monitoring, time management and nurse call systems. Web browser and smart phone apps are available to manage operations anytime, anywhere. “ISONAS™ addresses end-user challenges like never before,” said Mossman. Pierson agreed, adding: “WALLAroo® with ISONAS™ keeps medications, data, technology, equipment, and critical supplies in the right hands at all times—strengthening security throughout the entire facility.”
ISONAS™ is the first access control company to design and manufacture a cutting-edge, IP-to-the-door solution. Using a patented PowerNet™ reader-controller, ISONAS™ delivers a proven access control solution that offers network-based, “Pure IP” technology that eliminates the need for a separate power supply, control panel and dedicated hard wiring. The system offers real-time tracking of activity per WALLAroo® and user, with ongoing history and audit reports to adhere to the chain of custody requirements of HIPAA. ISONAS™ also features AES 256 bit data encryption, has lockdown and emergency functions, and an anti-tamper alarm system.
