Healthcare Technology and News: Ascom Wireless Communication Solutions Enhance Medical Services

Ascom Wireless Solutions, a supplier of on-site wireless communications, announced that it will showcase a suite of wireless communication solutions at Medica 2010.

These solutions are designed to help hospitals deal with managing the costs of personnel, besides improving patient satisfaction. Hospitals and clinics try to optimize the delivery and maintenance of their offerings with respect to patient services, service delivery and costs besides being competitive in the healthcare market.

These challenges put pressure on healthcare facilities, requiring them to enhance all processes by leveraging new technologies that ensure efficiency and cost effectiveness.

According to Ascom sources its efficient communication solutions simplify complex routines, improve patient satisfaction and the quality of patient care. Hospitals demand fail-safe and robust communications between equipment-to-staff, patient-to-staff or within the ER for coordinating emergencies.

Ascom’s vendor independent solutions connect to other hospital systems thereby providing a reliable, robust and cost effective VoIP solution that is independent of whether the system is IP-DECT or WiFi.

The solutions offered by Ascom for the hospital and healthcare markets include interactive light call, in which a nurse gets a patient call directly to her mobile device and with a single keystroke opens a voice connection with the patient. This solution saves a lot of time for staff and also increases patient satisfaction.

Ascom proposes to present this solution along with others like Medical alarms which is an integration with patient monitoring devices; alarms to coordinate emergency teams; personal emergency calls; integrated IP-Nurse call; transport management and baby protection at Medica 2010.

Ascom Wireless Solutions provides on-site wireless communications for key segments like hospitals, manufacturing industries, retail and hotels. The company’s solutions include a broad range of voice and professional messaging solutions that help customers by supporting and optimizing their mission-critical processes.

Company sources added that these solutions are based on VoWiFi, IP-DECT, Nurse Call and paging technologies, integrated into existing enterprise systems.
