A rep for Ascom, a supplier of Healthcare ICT solutions, tells mHealthWatch that the company has been commissioned by the SIEVERS GROUP to roll out what the firm’s press release calls “an advanced IP-DECT communication solution at all three hospitals of the Catholic Hospital Association (KHO) in East Westfalia.”
The established system integrator has previously been commissioned by KHO to replace the entire range of telecommunications equipment in the Franziskus Hospital in Bielefeld, the Mathilden Hospital in Herford and the Sankt Vinzenz Hospital in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, all of which are part of the KHO group.
“We have high focus on security and process efficiency. Sievers and Ascom presented an innovative complete concept that suited our high requirements,” says Ulrich Günzel, Commercial Manager of the Franziskus Hospital and Authorized Representative, KHO.
As we understand it, Ascom has designed an IP-DECT solution especially adapted to the needs of the three hospitals enabling existing alarms and information to be directly forwarded to the mobile devices of the employees.
Down the road, it will also be possible to “securely transmit medical alarms from the telemetric and patient-monitoring systems to user devices under the newly applicable standard DIN EN 606001-1-1.”
