Ascom, the leading global healthcare Information and Communication Technology (ICT) provider, today announced that its partner Houle will complete a large Ascom Telligence nurse call installation at Penticton Regional Hospital, a Canadian Interior Health facility in British Columbia. Totaling 155 beds and five ORs, the campus-wide implementation includes the hospital’s new tower as well as its existing building, and will be the sole nurse call system in use.
Ascom’s Telligence nurse call is a scalable clinical workflow and communications management solution that supports both centralized and decentralized care models and integrates with wireless devices to ensure that patient calls are rapidly delivered to the appropriate caregiver, regardless of location. Ascom’s integrated network of staff and patient-room devices ensures that the right information is delivered to the right caregiver at the right time for appropriate responses and simplified workflows.
“An important reason for the selection of the Ascom Telligence platform is the system’s ability to provide instant communications and audio connections to staff mobile devices with near zero second delay,” shares Levis Veilleux Account Manager at Houle. “We partnered with Ascom to demonstrate that capability, which was accepted and included by the design team in their initial process. Houle is actively including Ascom Telligence in many more projects and looks forward to helping more facilities maximize their nurse call investment to provide more patient-centered care.”
Rob Goldman, President Ascom North America, says: “Our new partnership with Houle in British Columbia is already proving extremely fruitful, as they are very active and engaged in their market. Working with Houle, Ascom looks forward to helping more facilities close digital information gaps and enable more responsive and informed clinical communication and collaboration.”
