Aug 28, 2018 PRESS RELEASES Comments Off on Ascom announces partnership with Stryker to deliver Stryker iBed wireless notifications to clinicians to target fall prevention
BAAR, Switzerland, Aug. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ascom (SWX:ASCN.SW), the global solutions provider focused on healthcare ICT and mobile workflow solutions, announced a new North American strategic alliance with Stryker, a leading medical technology company, to integrate Ascom Unite software with Stryker’s iBed Wireless Smartbed system. This clinical integration can help prevent patient falls by enabling automatic remote monitoring of bed status, checking for compliance with hospital protocol, and alerting staff to potential patient safety risk conditions.
Ascom Unite can monitor and evaluate bed status vs. prescribed protocols for each patient. It supports an advanced rules engine that can have tailored responses to siderails down, bed exit system disabled, bed not in low height, and more. These responses can include mobile alerts, display on a dashboard, and reporting. Ascom Unite can also suppress alerts for unoccupied beds or turn them off for patients not deemed a fall risk. To avoid unnecessary work interruptions, rules can be easily customized to help ensure only important and actionable alerts are sent to clinicians.
Falls-related injuries are associated with increased healthcare costs and a longer length of stay for patients. This new partnership and combined technology will help hospitals combat patient falls and deliver an advanced solution that is customizable and adaptable to specific hospital policies.
Rob Goldman, President Ascom North America, says: “Combining our mobile messaging capability with Stryker’s iBed Wireless technology extends the reach of bed alarms to mobile clinicians, helping reduce the risk of patient injury due to falls. Since the U.S. Joint Commission has reported that 30 – 50% of patient falls result in an injury, our partnership with Stryker offers hospitals more options to help mitigate and deal with these risks.”
