ARGENTUM SENIOR LIVING CONFERENCE – Ascom, a global solutions provider focused on healthcare Information Communications Technology (ICT) and mobile workflows, will exhibit and offer demos of the Ascom Myco 3, its newest, innovative smart device purpose-built for healthcare and senior living communities, in booth #910, April 16 - 17. Together, the Ascom Myco 3 and the Ascom Care Platform bridge communication gaps between residents and caregivers to open a gateway to the world’s largest ecosystem of software innovations and care management applications focused on clinical workflows, safety, satisfaction and efficiency.

The Ascom Myco 3 is the latest addition to the ‘My Companion’ series of professional smart devices. Designed as an indispensable, professional tool, the Ascom Myco 3 delivers critical resident information and team communication to the caregiver’s hand while enabling actionable insights for better-informed, coordinated and streamlined care delivery. Shareable across shifts with a truly hot swappable battery that is easily switched without powering down or entering sleep mode, apps continue to communicate and function as normal even while the battery is replaced. Contrasted with consumer devices not designed for the harsh care environment, the Ascom Myco 3 combines the ease-of-use of an Android™ smartphone with robust enterprise-level security and durability.

John Sola, Business Development Manager, Ascom North America comments, “We built the new Ascom Myco 3 to turn multi-step, multi-location processes into streamlined workflows and enable caregivers to spend more time on meaningful interactions and efficient care. The Ascom Myco 3 is an essential tool that a community’s care team can use to do everything from access and upload data to the EHR, accept or re-direct alerts and securely collaborate with colleagues. We are proud and excited to demo the device in our booth with customers and partners at Argentum.”

“Mission Hospital, part of Providence St. Joseph Health Hospital system in California, first deployed Ascom Mycos to multiple disciplines in our facilities as “the One” device of our mobile computing platform, enabling us to deliver critical care information right to the hands of our clinicians, including integrated nurse call and alert and alarm notification management, secure messaging, dynamic team staffing assignment, wound care and newborn photo capturing, secure team collaboration app, and the ability for clinicians to view live waveforms from patient monitors and 12-lead ECGs in near-real time on their Mycos,” shares Kristen Robb, IS Strategic Partner/Director, Providence St. Joseph Health. “Based on the success of that implementation, we plan to roll out the next-generation Ascom Myco 3 later this year, and are particularly excited by how it will support our new initiatives going forward such as data collection from infusion and IV pumps, barcode scanning for BMV (Bedside Medication Verification), and Real Time Location Services (RTLS).”
