Wireless nurse call system wins grant
RCare announced it had won a State Trade & Export Promotion (STEP) Global NY Exports Grant last week.
The grant program has a goal of allowing New York-based small businesses to increase export of goods, as well as increase the value of the exports. RCare is based in Rochester, NY.
By winning the grant, RCare will showcase its nurse call offerings at the Africa Health Exhibition in Johannesburg, South Africa, this week. RCare will be the only nurse call technology system there. RCare's BCube system, which is a full nurse call system but designed for smaller campuses, could be a good fit for many African healthcare systems, said CEO Myron Kowal.
"Rural and remote areas need the rich features of an advanced nurse call and monitoring technology, but their facilities are often small and cannot afford the price tag," said Katya Kowal, Director of International Sales at RCare. "We are humbled to have this opportunity to enter into the African healthcare market with our BCube, which was designed just for small communities."
