Red River, Rubbermaid Medical Solutions Partner to Provision Medical Carts with Integrated IT

Rubbermaid’s Medical Carts Now Come With Option of Turn-Key IT Integration From Red River

CLAREMONT, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Red River, a widely recognized national leader in providing IT products and services to government and healthcare sectors, and Rubbermaid Medical Solutions (RMS), the leading provider of point-of-care computing solutions for healthcare facilities, today announced they have partnered to offer advanced IT integration of medical carts. Rubbermaid has long been a provider of bedside medical equipment but now, through this partnership with Red River, Rubbermaid offers an added component: Configured IT that is integrated into the secure technology infrastructure of hospital or medical facilities.

With Rubbermaid and Red River, medical carts can be linked to real-time location systems to track their whereabouts. Carts can be linked to wireless networks, VOIP, and even switching and routing systems, which will ensure patient safety, security and the most-effective delivery of medical care. In some cases, the medical facilities’ IT infrastructure was originally implemented by Red River, and the medical carts are a mobile extension of that infrastructure.

Red River has quickly become a go-to IT provider to health care organizations large and small with nearly 100 implementations completed. Initially offering heath-care-focused IT products and services just in New England, Red River has seen demand grow rapidly, and now counts operations in multiple states.

“Red River views this expansion into health care as a natural extension of what we have delivered in the government sector so successfully for years,” said Rick Bolduc, chief executive officer for Red River. “It’s enormously satisfying to be able to bring our IT expertise to the delivery of high-quality patient care.”
