Ascom Boosts Its Healthcare Platform with Launch of New Ascom Myco 2 Smart Handset. “And our new Ascom Myco 2 delivers the power of the Ascom Healthcare platform from and between points of care to anywhere. Caregivers across the care continuum can seamlessly link with medical devices, EMRs, laboratories, nurse call systems as well as other healthcare communications and IT infrastructure.
“Our Healthcare platform”, adds Schmeer, ”including the Ascom Myco 2, drives improvements which can be as simple as more efficiently fulfilling a patient’s request for a blanket to as critical and complex an activity as automatically assembling a response team for a life-threatening event.”
The Ascom Myco 2 features new capabilities such as embedded near-field communication (NFC) and infrared (IR) positioning. These enable ‘tag-and-go’ data updates and sharing between similarly enabled devices and equipment items. They also enable automated ‘nurse presence’ functionality, which automatically logs staff interactions with patients. The Ascom Myco 2 runs on the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, and is available in a Google-certified version with access to apps via Google Play.
“State-of-the-art facilities such as the Humber River Hospital in Canada, and the Kuopio hospital in Finland rely on Ascom Myco to better connect clinicians to patients, and to all the information they need in order to spend less time on administrative activities and more on meaningful care,” said Tim Whelehan, President of Ascom North America. “The new Ascom Myco 2 is the optimized mobile platform delivering the full value of our and our clients’ workflow solutions and communications.”
Ascom is presenting the new Ascom Myco 2 at booth 3135 at the HiMSS17 event in Orlando, Florida, February 20-23.
