Telephones, Patient Location/Communication

Definition : Telephones designed for rapid automated patient location and communication. These devices typically consist of a cell telephone (usually wearable) and include a global positioning system (GPS) module that continuously monitors the patient location and permit sending and receiving voice and text messages from and to the patient by relatives and/or caregivers. Some telephones include automated or button-operated alarms for emergency calls. The telephones are frequently capable of sending automated messages when the patient wanders outside a pre-determined area. Patient location/communication telephones are used mainly by disabled patients and the elderly to improve their safety and/or autonomy.
