Aug 27, 2015

Ascom Wireless Solutions integrates with leading EHR (Electronic Health Record)systems to help hospitals enhancing their clinical workflows. The integration of Ascom's UNITE software with EHR systems will improve access for caregivers to patient information.

Ascom integrates leading EHR systems providing caregivers with access to patient health information within Ascom's UNITE Messaging Suite applications. By providing the UNITE software with access to patient health information, hospitals can better leverage their EHR system investments and enhance clinical workflows.

Hospitals globally are making tremendous investments in EHR systems to improve patient care. During the last two years, for example, hospitals in the United States were focusing their investments on installing EHR systems within the scope of the Affordable Care Act. In the context of these investments Ascom's UNITE software solution has a major significance in the healthcare sector.

When an EHR system is deployed, hospitals and caregivers both benefit from improved access to patient health information. Having the right information in a critical moment speeds-up decision-making and enhances the care environment.

UNITE integration with EHR systems complements these workflow enhancements by speeding up information flows. This integration utilizes standard-based protocols and helps create a connected environment for caregivers - keeping staff better informed, promoting enhanced staff assignment and clinical responsiveness.

Claes Ödman, General Manager Wireless Solutions, states: "Building a connected environment between UNITE and EHR systems delivers a quick, reliable and efficientsolution for hospitals that want to leverage the complete benefits of their EHR system. Enabling a connected environment is a critical component in enhancing patient care and improving clinical workflow."
