It looks like a smartphone.
In reality, it is the control hub for an open, powerful, comprehensive Healthcare platform.

  • It seamlessly connects its users with colleagues, patients, labs, pharmacies, porters, cleaners, medical devices, patient monitors, and nurse call systems.

  • It merges data from these multiple sources. Then displays it as meaningful information—helping frontline staff make the best decisions while on the move.

  • It enables collaboration. It helps remove workflow bottlenecks. It sends what it has learned to back-end administrative and analytical systems. And just in case you were wondering, you can also use it as a phone.

It is the Ascom Myco 2. The control hub that looks like a smartphone.
