ISONAS Inc., a leading pure IP access control system manufacturer, is proud to announce winning the Nightingale Silver Award in Architectural Products: Clinical at the recent Healthcare Design Conference for the Carstens MEDIroo™ with ISONAS ™ cabinet. Carstens, the industry’s leading provider of wall-mounted workstations, is the exclusive partner of ISONAS in the healthcare market.

The winners of the Nightingale Award were announced by Contract Magazine and Healthcare Design magazine, in partnership with the Center for Health Design, on November 16, 2015 at the Healthcare Design Conference in Maryland. The Nightingale Awards honors the best products exhibited at the conference and recognizes contributions to the healthcare built environment through product design and innovation that contributes to healing.

The winning products were selected based on their contribution to the quality of healthcare, functionality, environmental sustainability, quality, aesthetics, and price. ISONAS and Carstens are taking the healthcare industry by storm with its Pure IP access control technology and delivering an award-winning solution that is improving patient safety across the country. “Being able to offer ISONAS Pure IP access control technology as a locking option for our MEDIroo™ cabinets has really set us apart from competitors. Hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities like the ISONAS technology because it helps prevent drug diversion, waste and shrinkage of medical supplies,” states John Pierson, VP of Sales and Marketing at Carstens.

Within one year of launching the product at last year’s conference; it has quickly made a significant impact on the healthcare industry. The MEDIroo™ cabinets are designed to integrate into the workflow and traffic patterns of healthcare staff, keeping medications, supplies and EMR equipment exactly where they need to be and accessible by only the staff that has been granted permission. The ISONAS Pure IP access control technology allows an authorized user to open locked cabinets and other access points throughout a healthcare facility with a single swipe of a card.

The MEDIroo™ wall-mounted cabinet with ISONAS lock technology offers secure and convenient storage of medications and related supplies along with improved workflows and reduced medication errors; therefore enhancing the patient experience with improved safety and confidence in their healthcare facility. “We are proud to have partnered with one of the most respected vendors in the Healthcare Industry and share this prestigious award with Carstens. The benefits of a distributed Pure IP, panel-less, architecture combined with the desire for control, operational efficiency, and safety are driving us all to think about access control as more than just “doors” and the MEDIroo™ cabinets are the perfect example of this,” states Rob Mossman, CEO at ISONAS.

Advances in panel-less pure IP technologies have allowed our customers to redefine the applications of access control. IP enabled access control systems have been reduced to a single reader-controller device that has the capability of panel systems in a centrally managed, fully distributed architecture. Constant power can be provided via Power over Ethernet delivering as much as 600 mA for locks and other devices. Local decision keeps the access control network running, even if the network goes down. These advances result in faster install, greater scalability, and a less expensive overall proposition.
