Madrid, June 5, 2014

With the help of the modern Neat care solutions the Hermanas Hospitalarias center of Malaga was awarded the prize Profesor Barea for its project: "Automation for supporting security and patient monitoring”, framed in the category “Innovation, development and new technologies”.

This automation project, carried out in both the Center in Málaga and the Immaculate Conception Foundation of Granada, involved the installation of automation devices developed by Neat Group to respond to the real needs of these centers.

The project aims to improve the quality of life of users by ensuring the improvement of their safety thanks to remote monitoring systems that control their position in case of ambulation, loss or leakage, dropping or moisture detection. Also for the health professional this project represents an important step in facilitating the application for assistance in cases of emergency or attack.

This project also includes videoconferencing solutions between gyms, one-way video cameras and traditional videoconferencing for family members to communicate with the resident and  witness the activities.

Within the project there is also an integration system of vital signs with the health information system of the center.

The trend of the Hermanas Hospitalarias managers and other care people is oriented to provide restraint-free care. In Neat Group we are no strangers to this philosophy, therefore our solutions have a very human sense and the success of our products is precisely our desire to offer products that ensure a more dignified care.

The Professor Barea awards, in its 12th edition, was chaired by Professor Barea and was held on 28 May at the Carlos III University of Madrid. During the ceremony, José González Alonso Vargas, Director of Hermanas Hospitalarias of Malaga, was responsible for the defense of the project.
