Ascom — a leading global provider of enterprise-grade wireless communication and collaboration solutions — is re-launching its Ascom Healthcare Platform (AHP) for hospitals and other healthcare facilities, enhanced with additional solutions. The platform also improves customer experience with a common user interface for its Digistat and Unite software suites.
The expanded AHP offers seven state-of-the-art solutions for the acute care segment: workplace and staff safety, care coordination, response teams’ management, smart nurse call systems, clinical monitoring and alarm management, as well as silent medical alarms and clinical decision support system.
Moreover, the improved common user interface makes the solutions more intuitive, guaranteeing a seamless user experience for frontline clinicians.
“The re-launch of the Ascom Healthcare Platform is a major commitment to Ascom’s healthcare customers, and a significant addition to the tools clinicians can use to achieve even better clinical and care delivery outcomes,” says Ascom CEO Nicolas Vanden Abeele.
He adds: “Vendor-neutrality and interoperability are hallmarks of the Ascom Healthcare Platform. All the solutions integrate with third-party devices, as well as with the existing infrastructure and IT systems of hospitals.”
The expanded platform demonstrates Ascom’s ability to respond to care providers’ challenges and showcases Ascom’s healthcare offering combining software capabilities, nurse call systems and handsets, with everything from in-house nurses, all the way through to worldwide support and training.
“The AHP re-launch is an important milestone in our strategy to further enhance our position as a key healthcare player and partner. It’s a testament to our agility — and commitment to relentlessly help improve patient outcomes,” says Nicolas Vanden Abeele.
The AHP re-launch follows the appointment of Paul McCann as Managing Director for Ascom UK last month (September). The new managing director for Ascom UK says: “I’m excited to announce the re-launch of Ascom AHP. Our deep understanding of the challenges within healthcare has allowed us to develop a complete end-to-end solution that is intuitive, that is interoperable and that ultimately will support healthcare professionals to deliver better outcomes for patients.
“This is the latest in a long line of innovations for Ascom over its 60 years operating within the UK. There will be many more to come as we focus on growing access to our vital communication and collaboration solutions in the acute and long-term care markets, where we are amongst the market leaders.”
Ascom’s Healthcare Platform will be rolled out globally during the fourth quarter of 2022.
