West-Com is excited to formally announce our new partnership with the Nursing Institute for Healthcare Design. The NIHD is a professional organization dedicated to linking professionals from all disciplines of healthcare–clinicians, design professionals, and industry partners–to influence healthcare design across the spectrum of care. NIHD believes in fostering inclusion of healthcare staff to shape the design process from the beginning, leading to highest quality design standards and purpose-driven solutions.
West-Com has a legacy of modernizing healthcare communication in every segment of patient care. We are proud to continue leading this market through innovations like Patient CareBoards™ with telehealth, MobileCare™ mobile application, and Workflow Stations – all of which seamlessly integrate with other technologies like EMR and RTLS. Recently, we introduced nurse call solutions for behavioral health. These products are the latest example of a purpose-built solution designed to solve a specific need, not just the evolution or upfitting of an existing system.
Maintaining close relationships with our customers, technology partners, and professional organizations helps us remain agile in our ever-changing healthcare environment. We actively seek to partner with organizations such as the NHID, because at the crux of it, we believe that informed design, influenced by end users, leads to the most functional, valuable, and efficient products and solutions. For nearly 40 years, West-Com has worked to build a product portfolio that not only supports staff in their daily activities, but also creates workflow efficiencies and eliminates redundancies whenever possible.
Our partnership with the NIHD will not only help us continue to innovate our current product portfolio, but will also allow us to leverage the incredible knowledge base of their participating members to create valuable tools like webinars and case studies. Facilitating connections with end-user facilities from design ideation to full deployment helps achieve the best outcomes for patients and caregivers. And THAT should be the end goal for us all.
West-Com is thrilled to partner with the NIHD as a trusted source within healthcare design. We are very much aligned in our collective mission and our desire to offer products and services that are purpose-based and provide value – both financially AND clinically. As West-Com continues to be a leader in nurse call communications, we thrive on innovation and work closely with our customers to deliver solutions that modernize care communication from a single nursing unit to enterprise-wide implementations. We look forward to working with the NIHD and connecting with clinical thought leaders to further improve clinical communication, care collaboration, and the patient experience.
