HEALTHCARE INFORMATIONS and COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES

Ascom bridges digital information gaps across points of care, unlocking and eliminating the flow of clinical data to provide actionable insight enabling the best possible clinical decisions

HOW DOES OUR OFFERING DIFFER?

The figures are staggering:

poor communication costs hospitals $12bn a year in the US alone, equal to about 2% of global hospital revenue. 

And merely coordinating and organizing care eats up one-fifth of each nurse’s shift. 

 

But there is good news.

Ascom already offers solutions that can dramatically improve communication and collaboration within hospitals—solutions that can help enhance patient safety, staff satisfaction and clinical workflows. Ascom: working hard for hospitals.

"We had a very strong list of requirements for the new system.  It needed to have less points of failure than the current system.  Therefore, it needed to be an in-house system that was completely in our control, be bulletproof and reduce our down time.  We needed a mission-critical communication system."

Nurses and other hospital staffers need access to up-to-date patient and treatment data. Ascom solutions make data flow secure and easy.

MOBILE WORKFLOW

RTLS tell you where help is needed: whether it’s an assault on staff, mislaid equipment, or wandering patient. That means less time spent searching, more productive use of assets, and of course, safer patients.

LOCATION SERVICES

How can a hospital distribute alerts from monitors and life-support systems to mobile staff, while simultaneously minimizing noise pollution and the risk of alarm fatigue?

NOISE REDUCTION

Workplace violence against nurses and other frontline caregivers is a growing and global problem. How can we better protect healthcare workers?
