MORRISVILLE, N.C. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Munson Healthcare, a nine hospital non-profit Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) serving the state of Michigan, selected Ascom, the leading global healthcare Information and Communication Technology (ICT) provider, for a comprehensive technology retrofit of its flagship Munson Medical Center. The $1.1 million agreement is notable for encompassing the full Ascom Healthcare Platform, including Telligence nurse call, Unite software, EMR and RTLS integrations, Ascom mobility handsets and clinical consulting and training.
Challenged with inefficient legacy systems unable to upgrade to current technology, Munson valued partnering with Ascom versus using multiple vendors for an end-to-end replacement solution. Centralized management also proved key to the middleware sale, as Munson’s flagship will serve as the central hub to manage all messaging and reporting for the rest of the network. Telligence nurse call deployments were completed in October, and the Unite and Mobility installations are underway this December into early 2018.
“This is a significant IDN win for us because it continues to demonstrate the value of the holistic Ascom platform as a solution across an entire health system,” says Rob Goldman, Managing Director, Ascom North America. “Our engagement with the clinical and executive leadership of Munson, coupled with the longstanding relationship of our local partner Ascom north, proved invaluable during system design and selection. The clinical consulting and training included in this agreement will deliver customized, consistent workflows that are streamlined, efficient and patient-centric.”
