Ascom calls listing “yet another exciting step forward” for its flagship healthcare mobile device
Ascom, the global solutions provider focused on healthcare ICT and mobile workflow solutions, has announced that the Ascom Myco 3 smartphone has been listed on the Target Platform for the Epic Rover healthcare application. The app gives clinical users of Epic’s Electronic Health Record access to tools for clinical review, medication administration, specimen collection, and other clinical documentation workflows right from their mobile devices.
Part of the Ascom Healthcare Platform, the Ascom Myco 3 smartphone is available in cellular and Wi-Fi versions. Running on the Android™ 8.1 OS, the device features a HD 5” touchscreen, an integrated enterprise-grade barcode scanner, NFC functionality and a true hot-swappable battery. It works together with Ascom and third-party software and apps to put context-rich information from multiple sources into the hands of highly mobile clinicians. Designed for clinical and other demanding environments, the Ascom Myco 3 combines a robust yet ergonomic form with advanced integration capabilities and enterprise-grade security features.
For Ascom Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Francis Schmeer, the listing is “yet another exciting step forward for the Ascom Myco 3 smartphone.” The device works with apps such as Rover to connect clinicians to patient data, colleagues and IT systems—helping to streamline workflows, boost productivity and ultimately contribute to enhanced patient satisfaction and outcomes.
Schmeer also points to the app’s interoperability with the Ascom Myco 3 embedded barcode scanner as an example of how the smartphone enables mobile functionality for clinicians. “The Ascom Myco 3 barcode scanner lets clinicians securely identify patients, medications and colleagues at the point of care and while on the go. It’s a clear illustration of how the smartphone benefits busy clinicians, enabling smooth access to key data, and the ability to communicate and coordinate with colleagues, systems and patients.”
