Ascom delivers intelligent alarm management and mission-critical communication solutions focused on healthcare. Ascom Unite, our middleware portfolio, extends the reach of your existing clinical information systems by delivering time-sensitive information to your mobile caregivers. It combines intelligent integration, advanced alarm & messaging and system administration in one unique, powerful package.

Utilizing a sophisticated rules-based engine, Ascom Unite enables alarm notification and 2-way messaging to reach mobile caregivers – enabling interactive communication from any location within the hospital across a variety of communication devices.

Caregivers expend valuable time each day responding unnecessarily to low level clinical alarms. For example, studies indicate that 85%+ of all patient monitor alarms require no action by a caregiver. Ascom Unite can automatically filter low level alarms to significantly reduce these needless work interruptions. This results in enhanced workflow, improved efficiency and additional time which can be spent on actual patient care.

Ascom Unite integrates with a variety of clinical information systems to enable a “connected” environment where caregivers can remain mobile while accessing crucial patient information required for on-the-spot decision-making. It supports improved response time to patient alarms, helps caregivers better prioritize tasks and ensures proper escalation handling.

At Ascom we are experts in workplace mobility and our products are uniquely designed to advance mission-critical communication in your hospital.
