Ascom announces the signing of its largest-ever order size nurse call project for a client hospital in the Macao Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China.
The multi-million contract (in US Dollars) for Ascom’s Telligence Nurse Call will be delivered over the span of a two-year delivery period, together with Ascom`s partner Mega Datatech, a pioneering systems integrator in Macau. The solution will provide state-of-the-art workflow and nurse call solutions for 1,400 beds in both in-patient and out-patient facilities. The entire solution includes integrating electronic medical records (EMR) and real-time locating system (RTLS) services with workflows orchestrated by Ascom’s Unite software suite.
Ascom Telligence is the world’s first patient response system, the next evolution in nurse call systems. Built on the Ascom Healthcare Platform that collects information from multiple sources (the patient, healthcare applications, and other systems), Telligence provides clinicians and care teams a more comprehensive view of the patient’s status that goes well beyond traditional nurse call. As a result, caregivers are better and timelier informed when responding to patient requests and critical situations.
Derek Kuan, General Manager of MEGA Datatech, says “We are excited to partner with Ascom and have been impressed with their professionalism, strong product portfolio and R&D capabilities. With a long history in the nurse call market, Ascom complements our solution offering with their healthcare ICT expertise from different sites around the globe. Together with Ascom, I believe we will make a positive impact on the mission to close digital information gaps, allowing for the best possible clinical decisions by the healthcare providers in Macao Special Administrative Region.”
Jeannine Pilloud, Ascom CEO, states: “Winning Ascom’s largest-ever nurse call order is another proof point not only for Ascom’s world-leading technology and solutions capabilities but also underlines the continued progress made by our Asia team in developing the region with flagship clients. Ascom’s three largest nurse call clients globally are now all in Asia and we look forward to further supporting clients particularly in China with our local team and strong partners.”
