GOTEBORG, Sweden, November 19 /PRNewswire/ --
- Enables Speech Communication Between Staff and Patients
Ascom Wireless Solutions introduces VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) to their Ascom teleCARE IP solution. This solution that succeeds the teleCARE M system, which is widely used at hospitals all over the world, will now give nurses the possibility to talk with their patients, find out what the reason for the call is and adjust their work according to the information.
Ascom teleCARE IP was introduced last year to the market. This is the platform to branch out from, a solid foundation to build new features and innovations on. Now the next step has come; with VoIP. This new voice communication feature will make everyday life for hospital staff even more convenient. Communication is done while on the move, by means of Ascom DECT or VoWiFi wireless handsets. Conversation is possible between patient and staff, and naturally also between the staff themselves. All communication is done over the LAN using VoIP and SIP clients. Using the LAN makes it possible to connect multiple sites to one large united site.
"To create a truly future proof environment with solid communication solutions for our customers is one of the most important tasks we got," says Jan Ringenier, Product Manager at Ascom. He continues, "With VoIP the healthcare sector can benefit from reducing communication and infrastructure expenses by routing phone calls over existing data networks and avoid duplicate network systems. The Ascom teleCARE IP system is highly secure in operation and makes it possible to reuse the existing infrastructure, which means less investment for the hospital."
Ascom Wireless Solutions will be present at the Medica trade fair in Dusseldorf, Germany, 19-22 November. Here it is possible to learn more about other coming innovations within the Ascom teleCARE IP solution. For example to show calls on LCD/TFT screens in departments, including graphical information with colour rich texts in a nice layout. Another novelty will be smart card readers using RFID technology.
