"We have designed a solution that aligns perfectly with requirements while also allowing new technological advances. The platform is prepared for integration with clinical systems, to give staff access to all relevant information on their handsets, so they don't have to keep going back to the computer at the nursing station," says Aage Rask Andersen, Managing Director Ascom Nordics.

"We're looking forward to good and constructive cooperation with Ascom. The vision for our new hospital is that it must be the patient's hospital. Via our organization and use of technological solutions, we wish to create a hospital that is effective, focused on quality, and dedicated to ensuring a good experience for the patient. Ascom's solutions fit this bill," says Michael Hyllegaard, project manager at DNV-Gødstrup.
