Silent medical alarms

Create silent healing environments for patients. The Ascom silent medical alarms solution enables bedside medical devices (pumps, ventilators, etc.) to be set to silent mode. Alarm notifications from these devices are distributed as actionable alerts to designated clinicians’ smartphones. Alarm notifications and associated clinical data are also displayed on dashboards to provide a complete overview of medical device statuses.

Crucially, the technology development work was done by clinicians instead of to clinicians. It meant we had genuine engagement with nurses and other stakeholders as we carefully planned the hospital from the start – taking in the views of estates, IT, domestic staff, porters, admin, allied health and medical staff
