Ascom (US) Inc. Key Developments

Ascom Wireless Solutions and AirStrip Jointly Link Mobile Patient Monitor Alarms to Live Waveform Streaming Access

Ascom Wireless Solutions and AirStrip(R) have announced a partnership to link their clinical mobile device applications to provide faster access to live ECG waveform streaming, speeding up decision-making and response time to critical patient events. When a nurse or other clinician receives a patient monitor alarm message on their Ascom Unite Axess smartphone app, they can easily navigate with a single button press to near real-time waveform streaming via the AirStrip ONE(R) application. With the explosion in the number of healthcare apps available, nurses and other clinicians face increasing challenges in navigating between these applications to view mission-critical information. This joint development eliminates the need to navigate from one app into another, delivering an improved user experience.

Region Zealand Psychiatry Selects Ascom for Alarm Solution

With an investment of more than DKK 4 million, Zealand has opted for a thoroughly tested alarm solution from Ascom, which also stands behind the Danish Prison and Probation Service's security solutions. When the new psychiatric hospital in Slagelse opens its doors next year, it will be with a strong focus on employee safety. The hospital, which will unite the existing psychiatric wards at Dianalund, Holbæk, Nykøbing Zealand and Slagelse with its nearly 200 beds. It will not only be a treatment facility for common psychiatric patients, but will also accommodate patients committed by the courts and criminals awaiting diagnosis. Therefore, the requirements for security and personal safety are especially stringent. Personnel security is also integrated with the fire alarm and in case of assistance calls related to heart attacks. If a fire occurs anywhere in the hospital, staff will be automatically alerted on their handsets. Region Zealand has opted for a personnel security solution that runs in a closed network. The solution is 100% reliable, which is crucial, since the personnel security solution is one of the most important installations.

Ascom Wireless Solutions Launches New Ascom Myco Smartphone

Ascom Wireless Solutions announced the launch of the new Ascom Myco smartphone this month. It is the first nurse- and patient-centric device, with features designed to make the nurse's working day easier, improve efficiency and give more time for hands-on patient care. The Ascom Myco is the result of research looking at how nurses work, from patient- and colleague interactions to information flows and mission-critical communications. Ascom Design Engineers studied nurses in hospitals around the world using qualitative interviews, observations and shadowing the nurses as they worked on the wards. The findings were fed into the design features of the Ascom Myco smartphone and the user interface. The company also found that one major issue in the nurses working environment was alarm fatigue, due to the high amount of alarms that nurses are exposed to from multiple devices for monitoring patients. The Ascom Myco makes sure the correct alarm is sent out directly to the responsible nurse. A unique top display shows what type of alarm is going off, where it is and how important it is, giving as much information as possible in a single glance, even when the device is held in a pocket. The reduction of alarm fatigue and stress ensures that the nurse can concentrate more on patient care. Ascom Myco is also designed to make the life of the charge nurse easier. When combined with the Ascom Unite middleware, it extends the reach of existing clinical systems by delivering time-sensitive information such as alarms from medical devices and patient monitors directly to the nurse's mobile device. The middleware also has a built-in patient assignment module so the charge nurse can easily assign patients to the nurses and set an auto-escalation chain of two or three nurses for responding to the patients alarms. The Ascom Myco has a rugged design to withstand the physical and hygiene demands of the hospital environment. With multiple features for nurse decision support and patient management, and at the same time being so easy to use, it will become the essential nurse companion.
