The Ascom Healthcare Platform

Built around three core pillars —Integrate, Orchestrate and Enable— the Ascom Healthcare Platform is unique: the only truly comprehensive, end-to-end communication and collaboration platform for long-term and acute care. For fifty years we’ve been pioneering healthcare communications. The Ascom Healthcare Platform builds on this bedrock.
