How do you know if you need to speak with UBT?

Life Safety

  • Do you feel like you need an additional staff person just to hear and see everything that is going on in your facility regarding safety, environmental (temperature and moisture) conditions (in key areas of your facility), activities and emergency events?
  • Do medical staff persons lose valuable time receiving emergency alerts and then locating residents in need throughout your campus? Would you like an automatic way to track and report on response time?
  • Is your current alert system able to send reminders for recurring events to staff persons and residents AND emergency alerts via telephone, cell phone, pagers or email?
  • Does your nurse call system need to be improved and integrated into other systems – without being entirely replaced?
  • Would you like nurse call and panic buttons to function not just in a particular room or department, but throughout your entire facility and grounds?

Communications

  • Is your staff relying more on life-critical wireless devices? Does your current wireless network lack facility-wide coverage and potential dead zones and lack secure roaming? Does it seem unable to handle the need for fast wireless from staff, residents and visitors?  
  • Do you experience network slowdown during busy times?
  • Would you like your sick employees to stay home but minimize productivity losses when appropriate by having the ability to turn their home phone into an office phone?
  • Would your current multi-site phone system—including voice mail and Auto Attendant – be able to seamlessly function if one of your locations was affected by severe weather or a natural disaster?

Budget

  • Would you like to upgrade equipment but are tired of fluctuating costs and service fees? Would you like to have state-of-the-art equipment without spending capital up front?

With headquarters in east central Iowa, the UBT service area is focused on Cedar Rapids/Iowa City corridor and greater Des Moines/Ames area but with professional services offered throughout the state -- and beyond Iowa borders. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your organization. Our goal is to design, implement and manage a fixed cost solution to help your systems and staff become more efficient while decreasing overhead.

Health Care Vendor Case Studies

--Falcons Landing Leverages SARA in Emergency Preparedness Planning (Status Solutions) :

Falcons Landing (retirement community) was in need of a monitoring and reporting system that could integrate to existing
systems and devices, as well as provide proactive alerting. They were in search of one system
that could take multiple alerting devices and systems and consolidate them into a single platform.
The ideal solution would not only improve the safety and security of its residents, but also increase
the efficiency of its staff.
Falcons Landing has an unique environment, and were therefore in search of a flexible, non-proprietary
solution. “It was very important to us that Status Solutions was willing and able to customize the
solution to meet the specific integration needs of Falcons Landing,” comments Patrick O’Shea,
Falcons Landing’s IT Administrator.


 --Complete HealthCare Resources®: Flexible, Easy to Deploy and Manage Wireless Networking for Healthcare Facilities with Cooperative Control Wireless LAN (Aerohive Networks):

"One of the nation’s leading long-term care providers, Complete HealthCare Resources, selected Aerohive’s Cooperative Control wireless LAN solution for its facilities due to its ease of installation, manageability, and flexibility."

--Lakewood Manor Expands and Improves Life Safety with SARA (Status Solutions):

At Lakewood Manor, residents find themselves in a community built on security, involvement and
respect. The staff, and in particular Jim Jacobson, the Director of Support Services, wanted to
uphold these principles when faced with an expansion project that would include the building of
14 new independent living cottages and an independent apartment building made up of 30 units.
The existing nurse call system did not need to be replaced entirely, but could be improved
through automation and integration to other systems and devices. The building of the additional
living facilities gave Lakewood Manor the perfect opportunity to implement a solution that would
allow their existing systems to work together more cohesively.
“We were looking for a way to have consistency from a safety standpoint across our entire
campus. We knew what we wanted and Status Solutions knew how to get us there,” states Jim Jacobson.
