Technology in healthcare
Technology and healthcare go hand in hand. This is not only true in our modern, digitally driven world but has been the case throughout history.
One of the first medical devices was the stethoscope, invented all the way back in 1816 by a French physician called René Laennec. Laennec’s invention was not particularly technical — being just an ear trumpet that was pressed to the chest — but it demonstrates one of the first instances where humans sought to investigate what was going on inside the body using specially built instruments.
Medical devices have come a long way since then. These days, we rely on innovative technology to diagnose, measure, monitor, and treat all manner of bodily functions. Healthcare technology is an ever-growing field — one strictly regulated due to the immense impact that devices can have on the health and safety of both patients and clinicians.

Technology is not only harnessed for devices designed to diagnose and treat patients. It also plays an important role in facilitating communication within a healthcare setting.
Paragon Care — and their associated brands — offer a wide range of products designed to assist clinicians provide quality patient care. This includes:
Nurse call systems
Nurse call systems are an integral to any healthcare facility, enabling patients to quickly contact nurses and request assistance. They are commonly used in aged care settings to grant patients a certain level of freedom whilst also ensuring carers are within reach.
It’s not often discussed but security of healthcare facilities is very important. Through appropriately placed CCTV systems, healthcare providers can ensure that the safety and privacy of their patients and visitors is respected.
Access control systems
Hospitals and healthcare facilities have secure areas for a reason. Access control systems enable you to efficiently control which clinicians, patients, and visitors are allowed to access the areas of your facility through proximity readers, key pads, and swipe card readers.
Voice communication systems
Effective communication is the cornerstone of quality healthcare. As such, voice communication systems are essential if clinicians are to treat patients in a timely and appropriate manner.
