GOTHENBURG, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ascom, a leading supplier of Healthcare ICT solutions, announces certified integration with leading RTLS (real-time location systems) to ensure the highest level of interoperability. Through RTLS integration to the Ascom Unite Messaging Suite®, Ascom can now extend real-time location-based event messaging to mobile devices including smartphones, enabling quicker decision-making for healthcare providers.
In a modern healthcare environment RTLS provide critical information on the location of assets, staff and patients. RTLS systems are an important tool to optimize the delivery of patient care and streamlined workflows. Location-based messages enable mobile caregivers to react more quickly to events that require immediate attention.
Ascom Unite Messaging Suite supports interactive messaging on RTLS events such as high value asset movement, patient tracking, and staff location. When deployed with the Ascom Telligence Nurse Call System it can automate nurse presence registration in patient room, turning on and off dome lights and cancelling calls. Additionally Ascom Unite can send an “assistance request” to a colleague by just pressing a pre-programmed button on the RTLS badge. This intelligent integration enables improved information to caregivers and streamlines workflows.
Tom McKearney, VP Global Product Line Unite Solutions, Ascom Wireless Solutions states;
“Our advanced RTLS integration provides a more consistent approach when delivering information to caregivers, helping prioritize their tasks and optimize care. We believe that partnerships like this are an important component in building effective eco-systems for healthcare providers”.
