How to Enable Instant Two-Way Communication Between Patients & Nurses

Posted by Marie Thiele on Wed, Apr 23, 2014 @ 04:30 AM

The Business Challenge

Syn-Apps recently designed a one-of-a-kind solution for the healthcare industry. The initial request asked Syn-Apps to provide a solution to address a unique customer challenge. The hospital required a more efficient way to establish communication between patients and on-call nurses.

The Solution

To solve the business challenge, Syn-Apps created the Nurse Call System. This custom-built application, provided patients with activator and notifier, which uses an API, (application programming interface), to “bridge” nurses’ IP phones and patients’ bedside tablets - enabling the disparate devices to send and receive notifications across the network the ability to select a pre-determined message from a bedside tablet and deliver it to designated nurse IP phones.

Once received, a nurse is able to reply to the patient requests by selecting a unique set of response messages using buttons on their IP phones. 

When patients initiate a notification, they are delivered and placed into a queue, helping nurses organize and rapidly respond to their requests. The queue feature improves operational efficiencies by enabling staff to prioritize the patient requests, thus optimizing their response plan. 

Nurses use the Nurse Call System on their IP phones to monitor  the status of notifications (active, responded to, or cancelled),  view responses sent and received from both parties, as well as  additional notification details. Patients are able to monitor their wait status by checking for responses as they are delivered to their bedside tablet.

Cisco and Syn-Apps Providing Customer Business Value

Posted by Marie Thiele on Wed, Jan 05, 2011 @ 12:47 PM

By: Blair Pleasant – – January 5, 2011

At the Cisco Collaboration Summit, I met with Anca van Assendelft of Cisco’s Customer Business Transformation Group, and Steve Horton of Syn-Apps, a Cisco partner, who demonstrated applications that Syn-Apps developed to provide business value from communication-enabled processes. As Steve explained, Syn-Apps develops solutions to help retailers transition to implement IP in a way that they weren’t able to in the past, eliminating the need to retrofit paging systems in stores and buildings, while taking advantage of unified communications and enriched applications. The demo highlighted the integration of Syn-Apps’ application with the Cisco unified communication platform and the Cius device in a retail environment, resulting in the “webification” of the retail store.
