Ascom announces visionary platform for data-driven era of healthcare

Ascom Healthcare Platform bridges information gaps to optimise digital workflows

Ascom has announced a new approach to delivering optimised digital clinical information flows with the Ascom Healthcare Platform.

Delivering integrated and orchestrated clinical workflow solutions; the solution closes digital information gaps between devices, hospital systems and clinical care teams to extend the reach of critical information across points of care and enable informed, timely clinical decisions.

In today's clinical environments data is everywhere, but timely access to contextually-relevant digital information is still a challenge.

Take an ICU patient, for example. In a single day, one ICU patient can generate up to 2,000 data points.

Designed as an open and technology-agnostic solution, the platform takes a multi-dimensional approach to clinical workflows and digital information flows

But data is just the starting point, clinicians need actionable insight for responsive patient care.

"The Ascom Healthcare Platform addresses the complexity of clinical care”, said Francis Schmeer, Ascom’s executive vice president of marketing and business development.

“Designed as an open and technology-agnostic solution, the platform takes a multi-dimensional approach to clinical workflows and digital information flows.

“By creating interoperability between existing medical devices, healthcare information systems and care management solutions, clinical care information becomes more insightful, accessible and actionable. And the benefits are tangible, including fewer instances of miscommunication, preventing double documentation errors, improving patient response time, and increasing time available for patient care.”

The Ascom Healthcare Platform is a distinct approach to delivering workflow digitisation, workflow optimisation as well as analytics and smart data.

Consulting teams work with hospitals to provide customised, interoperable, modular and scalable solutions from design to implementation, integration and support.

Workflow Orchestration solutions streamline, filter and prioritise alerts and task notifications while extending the flow of information to mobile clinical care teams for more-responsive and informed care communication and collaboration.

Analytics and smart data applications add and enable delivery of structure and clinical context to information, helping clinicians and care teams co-ordinate care to address patient needs.

Because the challenges around clinical data are vast and complex, we set out to bring together mobile clinical workflow technology and solutions to create a dynamic proposition that is both powerful and flexible

"The Ascom Healthcare Platform is the realisation of a powerful vision, where digital clinical information is connected, optimised and accessible to clinicians, from the point of care to anywhere,” said Holger Cordes, chief executive of Ascom.

“Because the challenges around clinical data are vast and complex, we set out to bring together mobile clinical workflow technology and solutions to create a dynamic proposition that is both powerful and flexible.

“As we continue to innovate, the platform expands upon our market leadership in mobile workflows by bridging gaps and unlocking the full value of digital clinical information across points of care from general wards to operating rooms and intensive care units and across care teams, when and where they need it most.”
