Alpha-Log v4 System Software
as part of a complete report logging system
(showing the Messenger/Pocket Paging function)
Alpha-Log from Alpha Communications® is a data logging and pocket paging system for health care, security and industrial applications. Call or alarm signals from nurse call systems, emergency call systems, security systems, access control systems, motion detectors, industrial equipment, etc., are connected to the interface unit. The interface unit will monitor up to 256 call/alarm signals (individual wires). The interface unit is linked to a Windows® XP personal computer running Alpha-Log software.
When an event occurs (patient call, triggered smoke detector, etc.) the Alpha-Log software records on the personal computer's hard drive what event has occurred and when it occurred. Users can then set up reports and review data for a particular day, group of days, for a particular shift, all rooms, a single room or a group of rooms. Also, performance reports can be created showing average response time and long calls (nurse call). All reports can be printed on paper. As each event occurs, an alphanumeric description of the event is immediately sent to the PGR-AL924 pocket pagers. In nurse call and emergency call applications, patient calls are sent to nursing personnel via PGR-AL924 pocket pagers further enhancing patient care. Other applications can be run on the personal computer while Alpha-Log is running. The Alpha-Log paging and call logging system allows health care facilities to monitor and improve the nurse call response their patients receive.
The Messenger feature enables alphanumeric messages to be typed on the computer screen and sent to a specific person's pocket pager. This eliminates the need for repeated, annoying overhead voice pages. The Memo Page feature allows up to 300 alphanumeric memo's to be sent to specific pagers at user specified times on user specified days of the week (or on a
specified date). This feature can be used to remind nursing staff to administer medication to patients. Memo can include type and dosage information. Alpha-Log can be used for data logging without paging. The paging option can easily be added at any time.
