2023 MedTech Breakthrough Awards
At Commure Strongline, we’ve reimagined the hospital panic button as a discreet wearable badge that protects and empowers your entire workforce, one staff member at a time.
We believe healthcare’s largest challenges require the simplest solutions. That’s why Commure Strongline is a powerful duress‑alerting solution with portable staff safety badges that are easily installable in as little as 1-2 weeks. Staff safety — and retention — starts here.
Following its acquisition in January 2022, Strongline is now Commure Strongline, an affordably robust and easy‑to‑deploy solution designed to effectively protect and empower every person in the health ecosystem.
Workplace violence in healthcare is a monumental challenge. Nurses are physically assaulted every 30 minutes.
And yet, this is only the tip of the iceberg. 70% of incidents go unreported.
Commure Strongline was purposefully developed at a leading health system as the first solution to protect all staff no matter who they are or where they are — whether in an inpatient unit on the 9th floor, a physician office building, or in the hospital gift shop.
Our proactive solution prevents and de-escalates workplace violence across all care facilities, regardless of the scale or staff volume — allowing your organization to:
$4-8M on average spent per year per facility on replacing nursing staff who turnover.
Safety is the number one factor nurses report they consider when deciding whether to stay in their role.
Those exposed to workplace violence are 2-4x more likely to report high levels of PTSD, anxiety, depression, and burnout.
Enhanced staff perceptions of organizational safety translates to 22% higher CMS star ratings.
Commure Strongline is purpose-built to keep staff safe by empowering healthcare organizations to:
Successful de-escalation is a combination of strategies intended to reduce a patient’s agitation and aggression.
At the first sign of distress, staff simply press a small button on the badge, which sends a silent distress signal to everyone instantly — both nearby staff and security personnel — via their preferred mobile device and communication method. The system monitors the entire situation and all impacted staff in real time, from the first sign of duress all the way through resolution.
Wearable badges featuring discreet panic buttons empower any worker to instantly call for nearby help — signaling their name and real-time location — enabling early intervention and de-escalation.
Violence in the workplace shouldn’t be an inevitability that anyone has to endure — yet, for so many clinicians, staff, and employees in healthcare facilities, it is a constant and looming concern.
Installed in as little as 1-2 weeks and easily scalable, Commure Strongline provides always-on protection: 9 in 10 badge-wearers feel an increased sense of safety when dealing with a difficult patient.
By leveraging a secure location infrastructure, Commure Strongline provides coverage in all critical areas and enables healthcare workers to instantly summon support to the right location without any interference to existing clinical systems.
Commure Strongline is flexible and configurable for the unique needs of your healthcare facilities. We’ll deliver custom alerts via text, iOS app, and/or integrate with any of your existing solutions.
Safety shouldn’t come with sacrifice. Commure Strongline empowers health organizations to proactively keep their facilities safe with a comprehensive alerting and reporting solution.
Commure Strongline’s secure, cloud-based SaaS model allows for no capital costs and fully managed services for infrastructure and software support, often for less than the cost of covering nurses’ lost work days, replacing nurses due to burnout, or paying out preventable workers’ compensation claims.
A robust security dispatch dashboard with real-time reporting capabilities to understand trends and insights empowers security and leadership teams to track duress events and take appropriate action in support of their colleagues.
Commure Strongline is built for reliability — trust and safety go hand in hand
