What is MEMS?

MEMS, or the Medical Facility Emergency Management & Security system, is made up of features of MessageNet Connections to meet the needs of hospitals and health-care providers.

How Does it Work?

A typical MEMS integration is affordable, quick to install, and easy to use because the Connections platform it uses is designed to connect and work with technologies that are already deployed while leaving the system open to later additions. MEMS can be purchased and installed all at once or gradually built up over time. The only device necessary to get started is the Connections server.

Daily & Emergency Use

MEMS is designed to meet both the daily use emergency needs of hospitals and health service providers. Because the system is used for both emergency and daily communications, it’s used every day, making it easier and faster for users to send out notifications in the event of an emergency, saving more lives.

MEMS can also improve patient quality of care by integrating sound meters, allowing hospitals to improve their HCAHPS score.

Maximize your ROI by providing multi-user daily and emergency communication


Nurse Call integration

MEMS can integrate with the Nurse Call system to send alerts in a message format to mobile and other devices.

Medical Gas

MEMS can connect with gas flow detectors to monitor the incoming gasses and initiate an alarm if anything is abnormal.


MEMS can send messages and notifications to Vocera Communications Badges.

Mass Dial

Messages can be sent out to large numbers of pagers, phones, email addresses and PC-Alerts at one time.


LCD Screens

LCD screens can display text messages, videos and PowerPoints, and can be used as PA devices in an emergency, as well as providing way-finding and emergency egress information.


MEMS can send pages out to any combination of pagers and cellular phones connected to the system.

Audio/Visual PA

PoE signs and LCD screens can be used as both audio PA and visual PA, providing a written version of a spoken message. This feature is ADA-compliant.

Sound Meters

MEMS uses sound meters to detect the noise level and send out automated alerts to the area involved. This can improve patient care and also help improve HCAHPS scores.

Text Messaging

Messages can be sent out to any number or combination of mobile phones and other text-messaging devices, alerting all staff or specific groups, or even just a single person.

Panic Buttons

Panic buttons can be installed in nurse stations or elsewhere in the facility, instantly alerting emergency responders to the problem.

Scrolling LED Signs

LED signs can display and scroll text announcements and some have strobe flashers and text-to-speech capabilities.

Two-way Radios

Radios can be used when mobile phones lose signal and can be used by technicians or emergency personnel.

Fire Panel Integration

MEMS can integrate with existing fire panels to send alert messages based on customizable criteria that is configured in the system.

Door-open / Glass-break Detectors

MEMS integrates with these types of devices to issue alerts of intruders or other unauthorized personnel.

Other Advantages

  • 90-day, no-risk money-back guarantee
  • Audit trails
  • Integrate with pre-existing technologies
  • Multi-user access
  • Different classes of users
  • Ease of use
  • Helps save lives


MessageNet MEMS can be added to gradually over time, as needs and situations change.


MEMS is browser-based, so users can log on and send messages from any network-connected device.

Automated messages can be sent out by: buttons, fire panels, door-open detectors, other life-safety devices, and by scheduling messages in the browser interface.

MessageNet Connections

MessageNet Connections is a browser-based, integrated system that unifies everyday and emergency communications and security into one powerful system. Connections integrates your existing communication, safety and security systems to create communication bridges between people, places and things.

One of the unique advantages of the MessageNet Connections system is scalability: you can start with your specific needs now and seamlessly upgrade your system to include customized functionality later.
