Jul 9, 2013

Klinikum Stuttgart (www.klinikum-stuttgart.de) in Baden-Wuerttemberg/GER decided to equip also its location Mitte with a wireless IP-DECT communication system from Ascom Wireless Solutions (www.ascom.com/ws). Winning this important order against a strong competitor represents a next strategically important step for Ascom in implementing its strategy of Mission-Critical Wireless Communication in healthcare. The order has a volume of more than CHF 1.5 million.

Besides Bad Cannstatt Hospital the Stuttgart Clinical Center is now also using integrated wireless IP-DECT communication systems from Ascom at the clinic location Mitte. The project involves the installation of mobile devices such as Ascom d62 and Ascom d81 as well as support services. For the order Ascom supplied over 1,000 base stations and around 1,400 terminals to enable the user to handle wireless telephony, messaging and various alarm functions. In addition, information from patient monitors can be transmitted directly to each mobile terminal. With the consolidation of medical centers and clinics in one place, the new central building is considered to be the trend-setting hub of the clinical center location in Stuttgart. Open system architecture enables the alarm telephony systems to be used across all three clinic locations - an added value in terms of flexibility and economic efficiency

"For a clinic such as Stuttgart, ensuring maximum protection and patient comfort in the individual hospitals and medical centers is a top priority. One requirement for this is to ensure that the hospital staff have prompt and reliable information on the relevant hospital-related events", explains Claes Ödman, General Manager Ascom Wireless Solutions. Claes Ödman adds: "To this end, our customer was looking for a consistent, yet above all sustainable communication solution, which meets the high demands in security, efficiency and flexibility."
"As the clinic is continually being modernized and extended, individualized requirements should be met with future-oriented systems offering a secure investment. Our scalable IP-DECT systems make it possible for every clinical field to have the solution that it needs", concludes Claes Ödman.
