Mental Health Care is applying their knowledge and research to better a person’s mental health and their quality of life. The most important intention of Foston Europe during the collaboration with a Mental Health Care Institution, is applying technology in a way that makes the employees feel safe. When an unsafe situation occurs, our alarm system let’s every employee know where and when the situation is taking place, so measures can be made as fast as possible. Next to that, with the dashboard system Qlik Sense, Foston ensures nurses in a mental health care facility have a clear sight of every data of the patients and data that was imported by other nurses.
In the target group Hospitals, Foston mainly integrates appeal systems, but also alarm systems that are being so accurately adjusted that the nursing office is getting a buzzer when a patient is showing different behavior. Because of the platform, patients can be monitored and for that, personal, and more efficient care can take place. Besides that, Foston can also realize the integration of a dashboard, that is useful to come to new insights and big amounts of data of health care systems can be realized.
