Micro Key Solutions Offers Monitoring Option for Health Industry

Micro Key Solutions, a software solutions provider for the security alarm industry, and Medical Alarm Concepts™ Holding, Inc., manufacturer of the MediPendant™, the first fully-monitored medical alarm system that allows a person to speak and listen directly through the pendant, is cooperating with Sur-Gard, to introduce MediMonitoring™, a total system solution for the home healthcare/hospital industry.

The MediMonitoring solution is designed for healthcare providers such as hospitals and large home/healthcare companies. Many of these providers are familiar with the benefits of personal emergency response systems (PERS) and would like to provide their patients with these additional services when they are discharged from the facility and return home. MediMonitoring also will provide medical monitoring services for seniors, the physically challenged, and those individuals with chronic illness who remain in their home and prefer to be monitored by their local healthcare provider.

Wayne Torrens, president of Micro Key Solutions said, “Our partnership with Medical Alarm Concepts and Sur-Gard results in another fully integrated solution that Micro Key offers to the security alarm industry. We are always looking for ways to make our world a safer place and feel the MediPendant is something that will enhance many lives. This latest solution provides users with a reliable and quick communication device. Their situation is accurately routed to the monitoring operator and onward to emergency services or to family and caregivers. Highly effective information access and voice communications are keys to effective emergency medical alarm response systems.”

Howard Teicher, CEO of Medical Alarm Concepts, further stated that “by offering a complete package using Micro Key’s Millennium Monitoring software incorporated with Medical Alarm Concept’s MediPendant, we provide a comprehensive mission-critical offering in the medical alarm monitoring market for those institutions seeking to enter this business segment.”

“Providing a turnkey solution like this in concert with the expertise of highly experienced and proven partners will enable us to offer state-of-the-art technology that is exactly what large institutions are looking for going forward,” added Steve Beeferman, director of Home and Healthcare Services for Medical Alarm Concepts.
