Franklin, OH – VRI, a leading provider of medical monitoring services and Numerex Corp (NASDAQ: NMRX) a leading provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced that they have partnered to provide mobile emergency response systems to healthcare facilities and individuals.  Both VRI and Numerex will be offering Numerex’s mySHIELD mobile emergency response solution combined with the monitoring power of VRI’s 24×7 Care Center.  When mySHIELD users need help they simply press a button and a live care representative will speak with them via two-way voice communication.  The Care Center will triage the situation and help the client get the help they need.  If the client is connected with a healthcare facility, the Care Center can connect the client directly with the staff through their existing internal communication system.  If needed, the Care Center can use GPS tracking to locate the client and direct responders to the correct location.

“We are excited to partner with Numerex to continue to help seniors and persons with disabilities feel safe and able to maintain their active lifestyle.  The ability to provide an innovative solution to healthcare facilities and to help keep people healthy, safe, and active is exciting” said Chris Hendriksen, CEO of VRI.

The mySHIELD solution provides 24×7 protection and a broad coverage through the Verizon cellular network.  The device is wearable and easy to use.  Solutions are available individuals, independent care facilities and large systems of independent or skilled nursing facilities.

“We are very pleased to have a win-win partnership with VRI”, added Kelly Gay, COO of Numerex.  “Our industry-leading solution combined with VRI’s first class service in the healthcare industry provides the best assurance that end users who need urgent help are being taken care of with the latest technology and infrastructure our industry has to offer.”
