Ascom solutions for hospitals

The figures are staggering: poor communication costs hospitals $12bn a year in the US alone, equal to about 2% of global hospital revenue.1 And merely coordinating and organising care eats up one-fifth of each nurse’s shift.2 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.

    How can a hospital distribute alerts from monitors and other bedside equipment to mobile CCU staff, while simultaneously minimising noise pollution and the risk of ‘alarm fatigue’? The challenge is that staff require timely patient data and alerts. But too many clinically insignificant alerts—particularly at night—impact staff, and can compromise patient well-being. One possible way forward is intelligent alert notification management that filters the flow of alerts to frontline staff.

    Peace and quiet—a rare remedy in modern Healthcare? Nurses and other caregivers are constantly on the go. But all too often the information they need isn’t. Instead, it’s inaccessible or stationary: inside a desktop PC, written in a journal, inside a colleague’s head. Making this information accessible can help improve workflow efficiency, and can contribute to better patient satisfaction.
