CarePlus™ V2 is available now from our global network of authorized distributors. This system can be installed in a phased approach in specific care areas or wards and then scaled up to other care areas in the facility as time and budget allows. The modular design enables the system to be installed around operational requirements and operational restrictions in specific care areas of the facility, one care area at a time. Additionally, features enabling various efficiency and safety initiatives can be customized (enabled or disabled) for each individual care area to maximize operational and budgetary flexibility.
