The Future of Patient-Provider Interaction

Value-based purchasing. Patient satisfaction. Meaningful use. These are just a few of the building blocks healthcare organizations are employing to drive advances in patient-centered care. With reimbursement dollars at stake and patient experience a priority, hospitals are being challenged to elevate the standard of care delivery. Effective communication is the backbone of excellent patient care, but too often a weak link.

Starling® is a bedside communication system that presents a new paradigm for interaction at the point of care, empowering patients and providers with the right collaboration tools to improve outcomes and streamline communication processes. Our belief is that better communication yields better results.

Eliminate Language Barriers

Our intuitive interface uses universal icons with audio and text references in the patient’s native language for unprecedented ease of communication with providers. The interactive touch screen system is available in any language.

Empower and Engage Patients

Patients can easily articulate specific needs such as toileting, getting out of bed and reporting a problem. Simple two-way communication drives safety and satisfaction by empowering patients to request assistance with a single touch.

Keep Patients Safe

Monitor and Prioritize Patient Requests

Starling® can be easily configured to assign urgency ratings to any patient request. Providers are presented with an intuitive, color-coded dashboard and critical requests are escalated proactively.

Monitor and Prioritize Tasks

Streamline Provider Workflow

It’s a simple concept — get the right patient requests to the right provider the first time. Starling® facilitates workflow optimization by using configurable business rules to automatically route requests to the right providers or departments. Route tasks directly through Starling®, to mobile devices or seamlessly integrate with existing applications and workflows.

Leverage Data to Make Informed Decisions

Robust reporting tools allow access to Key Performance Indicators as well as detailed data. By improving transparency, Starling® empowers organizations to optimize workflows, increase accountability and leverage data to help create a world-class patient-centered care environment.

Improve Communication

The Starling® platform shows request history, lead time, and commonly requested items, facilitating patient-provider interaction. Providers can keep patients informed of each request’s status, driving better engagement and setting realistic expectations.

  • “On my way” notification
  • Provider on the way
  • Provider bed view
  • Provider room view
  • Provider floor view
  • “Water” request


Care providers are highly mobile, and Starling’s® mobile application gives them the communication tools they need when they’re on the move. Send alerts directly to patients to manage expectations, create and monitor real-time task updates and collaborate with easy delegation tools.
