In the Hospital... We Make It All Work Together.

Evaluating The Integrator

December 15, 2020

When considering a major system purchase it is just as important to evaluate the systems integrator, the company that will install and support the system, as it is the system itself.  You can certainly purchase the best and most technically advanced systems on the market, but if the systems integrator is not capable of properly designing, installing, implementing, and supporting the system, the end result will likely be poor or possibly one of the worst buying decisions you ever made. 

Close Call In The OB

October 27, 2020

CODE PINK! CODE PINK! This is the universal code that signals an abduction attempt is taking place within a hospital. A couple of weeks ago, we got a call from one of our customers stating that they experienced an actual Code Pink. For the sake of security and privacy I will not name the actual hospital, but this story is real.

WOW; Workstation (Computer) on Wheels

September 16, 2020

At IMS we specialize in four different product groups. One of those groups is EMR Computer Mounting Solutions, designed to mount the computer, display, and keyboard for Electronic Medical Record (EMR) data entry.  One of the most popular products for EMR data entry is the Workstation on Wheels cart (WOW) used by clinical staff as a mobile charting solution.  The WOW can be upgraded to include large format computer displays, secure locking drawers for med distribution, RFID readers, Barcode Scanner Mounts, Sani-Cloth mounts, and many other accessories. The devices mounted on the WOW can be powered by the onboard power system, providing several hours of continuous mobile use.  As with any device in a 24/7 healthcare environment, they typically require scheduled maintenance.  With our only focus being healthcare and strong relationships onsite in the hospital as a result of supporting Patient Security Systems, we offer a full range of support options for WOWs purchased from IMS.  

Shocking Statistics

Tis' the season to plan costumes, shop for candy, watch horror movies, jaunt through the local haunted house and simply get your scare gene tickled. In keeping with that theme, let's talk statistics, frightening stats that make you shutter!

Who Do You Trust?

April 10, 2019

In our last blog we discussed “Buyers’ Remorse” and how making an educated purchasing decision helps one avoid stepping on landmines. Nowadays, we have the world at our fingertips to aid in our research. Google has fundamentally changed how we gather information and as a result we use the research we find online to guide our decisions.

 Ever noticed the different types of alarms in a hospital? Nurses and clinicians are exposed to thousands of alerts and alarms every day from a variety of systems. Over time, it is not surprising they get immune to the lights and sounds, causing them to easily ignore alarms instead of responding to their urgent call for action. Seem impossible? This seemingly impossibility has a name, it is called alarm fatigue. Alarm fatigue is a term that describes the mindset once nuisance alarms start getting ignored. Nuisance alarms are not to be confused with false alarms. 

Not So Bitter

September 24, 2018

“Wanna try?” My dad asked, extending his coffee mug my direction. I’d always watch my dad with unapologetic admiration as he sipped his cup of Yuban Gold. “What a man,” I thought privately. He had whiskers, watched the news, and drank his coffee black. A man I wanted to be.

Work and Ethics

June 28, 2018

A new family moved in next door this Spring.  Early on I met Dad and a short while later I met Mom and the boys.  Over the next few weeks I observed a family that was a very industrious team. They immediately got to work cleaning up last year’s leaves, mowing grass, trimming shrubs and opening the swimming pool, a major task in itself.
