What Do You Need in a Medical Office Radio?
We’ve been working with medical offices for more than 20 years to maximize their efficiency with quality two way radios.
To that end, we understand the most common needs of the medical industry.
Much like a medical diagnosis, we take a look at the symptoms of poor communication within your office and prescribe a two way radio that will alleviate those pains.
Here are some of the primary features you should look for in your medical office radio:
- Antimicrobial. There are so many germs in a medical office. You don’t want to spread them through the use of shared radios
- Works well indoors. That means you want a UHF or Digital Band radio only
- Privacy. Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum and Privacy codes should be featured in order to protect the personal information of your patients
- Multichannel devices so that a doctor can have their own channel and won’t be constantly interrupted with day-to-day office communications
- Call alert features so that personal information doesn’t come through the radio in front of patients
- Hands free option, specifically for a doctor or nursing staff while they’re working with patients.
The Best Radios for Medical Offices
The Motorola DLR1020 is a digital band device that works wonders in a medical office.
Not only is this device fairly priced, but it will also save you money over time. That’s because digital band radios are exempt from the FCC licensing fees that most UHF and VHF radios are forced to pay.
This device has two channels for staff segmentation. That means you have one channel specifically for the doctor and the other for the rest of the staff.
The DLR1020 is not cumbersome at all. It’s a lightweight radio that weighs in at only 4.2 ounces.
As far as range goes, you’ve got 20 floors or 300,000 square feet indoors. This is a device that is great at getting around indoor obstacles.
Patient confidentiality won’t be an issue thanks to the Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology and 10,000 privacy codes. These features will keep sensitive patient information private.
Page All and Call All Available features make this radio ideal in an emergency medical situation. Let’s say that someone collapses in the waiting room; the Page All or Call All button ensures that the entire staff is notified right away.
There’s also a Direct Call feature which allows you to contact one specific person with sensitive patient information that the whole staff doesn’t need to hear.
This isn’t a radio that’s going to die on you either. It has a 14-hour battery life that will last the entire workday.
You also won’t have to worry about germs or bacteria clinging to your radio thanks to the antimicrobial coating on the casing.

It has the same range and weight as the DLR1020. It also saves you money thanks to the digital band the device runs on. That means no FCC license fees.

This device comes with 15 floors of indoor range, which is more than enough space for even large doctor offices.
One truly beneficial feature of this device is Audible Call Alerts and Vibracall. That means the radio will alert you to incoming messages like a cell phone would. As a result, staff members or nurses won’t accidentally receive confidential information in front of other patients.
On top of all that, setup is super easy thanks to this device’s simplified cloning. You only have to program one radio. Then you can copy those settings onto all of the others easily.
