Secure, trusted and simple communication for a better healthcare



It enables the patients to precise their requests in order to help the medical staff to anticipate their needs and to split the tasks between nurses and medical assistants. Furthermore, the hospital management can analyze the data of the calls to optimize the efficiency of the work.

Benefits of CARING

Innovative connected nurse call system


Gain of time

Knowing the reason of the call will help to better anticipate the needs and split the tasks between nurses and medical assistants.


The data analysis can provide the management useful insight to improve work conditions, shifts, patient's records and logistics

Flexibility, personalisation

The screen buttons can be customized according the service through the application. A list of different pictograms are available..

Reinsure the patient

Visual feedback confirms the request has been well sent and then, notify the patient when someone is coming

Better organisation

The application for the medical staff is accessible from everywhere at anytime time. It gives an overview of all the alarm calls in order to have better task split between nurses and medical assistants. Plus, it allows a certain number of users to have the silent mode to avoid any distribution.
