Addressing COVID-19 with Clear-Com Communications

Full duplex, bi-directional talk-and-listen, intercom systems provide clarity and non-blocking ease of use when compared to press-to-talk, low quality two-way radios, or walkie talkies. For the speed and responsiveness required for emergency medical uses, the clarity and immediacy of non-blocking communication is essential to improve responsiveness and ultimately save lives.

Clear-Com provides scalable solutions from small facilities or teaching labs to very large distributed teams. We recognize the need for non-touch wireless and for the configurability that prioritization requires, along with interfacing to outside systems such as dispatch and house phone systems.

Hospital Isolation Rooms, Wards and Labs

Hospital Isolation Rooms, Wards and Labs

In hospital isolation labs several intercom sub-systems can be used to provide hands-free communication in the labs back to the control center. Benefits of the Clear-Com solution are that all communication within the isolation rooms is handsfree, lowering the risk of contamination, and that central control has direct and immediate communication with all rooms on the circuit.

2-Way Radio Interoperability

Tech Blog: 2-Way Radio Interoperability

Many hospitals, medical campuses, emergency operations and testing/research institutions primarily use two-way radio systems to communicate. In some cases, adding a full-duplex intercom may enhance the existing communication workflow. Find out how the benefits of integrating an intercom system to existing two-way radios can improve outcomes with enhanced usability and improve workflows.
