The Ascom Healthcare Platform—turning the promise of digitalization into real, measurable benefits

What is the Ascom Healthcare Platform?

The Ascom Healthcare Platform is an open, powerful software platform for integrated workflow intelligence, systems, applications and mobility solutions.  

What does the Ascom Healthcare Platform do?

The Ascom Healthcare Platform software can capture vital signs, alarms and other data from bedside equipment in patient rooms, intensive care units (ICUs) and operating rooms (ORs) and other wards. The software can also process events and requests from patients and clinical staff, and can pull together mission-critical information from multiple sources:

  • Patient monitors

  • Infusion pumps and other bedside medical equipment

  • Nurse call systems

  • EMR/EHR systems

  • Voice and Text

  • Images and barcodes

The information is continuously analyzed and presented as meaningful data in a controlled, secure manner to the right person or system at the right time and at the right place. Put simply, the platform realizes the potential of digitalization. It removes barriers to truly mobile communication and collaboration. 

What are the potential benefits of the Ascom Healthcare Platform?

  • By making sure that patient requests and medical notifications are communicated to the right person at the right time, it can contribute to a calmer environment and faster responses to individual patient events.
  • It allows clinicians to more efficiently input and access the mission-critical information needed to make prioritizations, provide patient-centric care, using fewer steps and less time searching for information. Events, workflows and information are recorded and tracked in the system.
  • It can help clinical management better view, manage and deploy resources—
    leading to improved cost-efficiency and patient satisfaction.
