MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market, today announced that Commure, Inc. has been selected as winner in the 7th annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program with the Commure Strongline solution taking home the “Best IoT Healthcare Security Solution” award.

Commure Strongline is designed to help keep healthcare staff safe from workplace violence. In instances of duress or assault, staff simply press the button on the Commure Strongline badge to send a discreet alert for help to site security as well as proximate staff, enabling early intervention and quick de-escalation of a potential incident before it turns violent. And because the Commure Strongline badge is portable, it offers ongoing protection for staff members wherever the system is enabled.

In addition to isolated events, Commure Strongline empowers health organizations to create a safer workplace over the long term through its robust security dispatch dashboard with real-time reporting capabilities. The dashboard gives leadership and security teams the insights they need to proactively understand trends, track duress events, take appropriate action, and mitigate future risks in support of their colleagues.

“We are thrilled that MedTech Breakthrough recognizes the value of the innovative work that we are doing. Keeping staff safe is fundamental to key business outcomes, including adequate staffing, financial fortitude, patient satisfaction, and ultimately patient outcomes,” said Ashwini Zenooz, MD, CEO of Commure. “It also has a direct impact on retention: Work environment safety is the number one factor impacting nurses’ decision to stay at or leave their current role today. Commure Strongline is designed to help health system and hospital leaders refine their approach to system-wide security and ensure their workforce is protected with a multifactorial and collaborative approach to safety.”

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Telehealth, Clinical Administration, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Virtual Care, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.

“In an industry powered by a workforce who spend their lives delivering intimate and compassionate care, it’s astonishing that those same caregivers face workplace violence rates higher than any other industry,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “Commure Strongline addresses this need with a breakthrough connected solution that helps prioritize prevention and de-escalation and protect staff while also tracking and reporting critical data to boost prevention measures. Health systems can protect their people and, in turn, create a culture of safety that has a direct impact on retention, engagement, and outcomes. Congratulations to the Commure team for taking home a well-deserved 2023 MedTech Breakthrough Award.”
