Stanley Healthcare Launches Arial® 8 Emergency Call Software Platform

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., May 16, 2012 – Stanley Healthcare, a business division of Stanley Black & Decker, today unveiled the Arial® 8 software platform for the Arial emergency call system at Community 2012, the annual conference and expo of the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA). The Arial 8 software is built on Stanley Healthcare’ healthcare software platform, in use at hundreds of healthcare facilities across North America. It gives assisted living and other senior care communities a new platform to integrate a full range of resident safety and security systems: nurse call/emergency call, wanderer management, fall management, access control and other safety systems. Arial 8 delivers several key new features to both existing Arial customers and other organizations looking to expand the performance of their nurse call or emergency call system:

  • Integration of multiple safety systems, with a single user interface
  • Support for wireless devices using both the Inovonics EchoStream® and FA platforms
  • Remote event notification via pagers, display signs, phones, e-mail and text message
  • Advanced reporting capabilities, with easy report customization
  • True client/server structure, with support for 25 workstations

By pushing information to caregivers right at the point of care, and equipping managers with detailed reports on what is happening in the facility, Arial 8 helps senior care communities to improve care, reduce risk and raise staff efficiency for better financial performance. Stanley Healthcare' unique approach to designing, installing and supporting resident safety and security technology ensures customers receive a fully integrated turn-key solution. Stanley Healthcare brings more that 30 years of experience to the industry, and serves over 11,000 senior care communities. Commenting on the launch, Chris Beekman, Director of Sales for Stanley Healthcare, said, “We’re very pleased to be launching Arial 8 at the ALFA expo, where we welcome so many current customers. Arial 8 is a cost-effective and powerful solution for assisted living communities to really improve their care and efficiency.” The Arial system is part of Stanley Healthcare’ suite of products for the senior care industry, which includes market leading solutions for wanderer management (WanderGuard® and RoamAlert®), fall management (TABS®, Bed-Check®, UMP™ and Micro-Tech™), and access control components. In addition, Stanley Healthcare is able to integrate Ascom hand sets for care team communication into the Arial system.
