Ascom has been chosen to provide its clinical communications and collaboration solutions to a new medical facility run by the Chulabhorn Hospital in Thailand.
Through its Thai partner Xovic, Ascom will deliver an IT ecosystem at the 449-bed Bhadra Maha Rajanusorn Medical Centre, including its mobility devices, a software suite, the Telligence nurse call system, and integration with third-party vendors.
The new hospital started operating its emergency department on 9 January.
WHY IT MATTERS
As part of its digitalisation journey, Chulabhorn Hospital is setting up a digital hospital that has all health data collected from physical devices interfaced with its HIS. It also seeks to use health and hospital information, along with modern technologies, to allow its staff to focus on care, as well as harness data for research.
In this regard, Ascom was chosen as its platform enables access, sharing, and tracking of information across the clinical team. Chulabhorn Hospital expects that Ascom’s suite of clinical solutions will “provide a new experience” to patients at the new Bhadra Maha Rajanusorn Medical Centre.
The Ascom Digistat software, for example, will enable clinical decision support, medical device integration, and alarm management. Additionally, the Ascom Unite software is expected to facilitate communication and collaboration among team members through RTLS and EMR.
THE LARGER TREND
Ascom continues its expansion across Asia with this latest contract win. Last year, it was tapped by Mahsa University in Malaysia to install the Digistat and Unite systems at its upcoming 400-bed specialist hospital.
The health IT provider was also able to bag a multi-million dollar contract to deploy the Telligence nurse call system at an unnamed hospital in Macao. It was also contracted to deliver the same nurse call system to two Mayapada Healthcare hospitals in Indonesia.
ON THE RECORD
“The deployment at Bhadra Maha Rajanusorn Medical Centre reinforces the power of Ascom Clinical and Collaboration solution enabling clinicians to make informed data-driven decisions,” commented Siao-Loon Then, head of sales at Ascom Asia.
