Critical Alert was formed in 1983 as WESCOM, a nurse call hardware & software solution for acute and long-term care organizations. Throughout the 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s, WESCOM pioneered software-based nurse call and was the first nurse call company to integrate RTLS staff presence into the clinical workflow.
WESCOM was rebranded in 2007 as Intego Systems, with a honed focus on the acute care sector. In 2012, the company was re-branded as Critical Alert.
Today, Critical Alert has reinvented itself from a pure-play nurse call vendor to a producer of a comprehensive clinical communication platform converging nurse call, alarm management, medical device integration and rules-based notification.
