BAAR, Switzerland, Aug. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The new Koutio Médipôle hospital in the New Caledonian capital Nouméa, located in the southwest Pacific Ocean, has optimized patient care communications and responsiveness for the new 645-bed facility by deploying Ascom Myco Wi-Fi devices to support clinician teams and Ascom Myco Wi-Fi/GSM handsets, used across paramedic teams.

The Ascom solution is seamlessly aligned with clinical workflow and applications (nurse call, pneumatic conveyors, patient transport, etc.). The hospital also utilizes a Mercury server and software solution that automatically forwards all alerts related to emergency tasks, nurse call and patient transportation location independently to the correct staff in charge via Ascom Myco smartphones and text messages.

These integrated installations strengthen the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure of the facility and increase care efficiency by displaying patient transport information made accessible and visible on the Ascom Myco handset. This improves transport efficiency by avoiding common errors and contributes to better patient care and safety. Frédéric Dosch, Deputy Director in charge of information and biomedical systems emphasizes: “Our information system combines different best of breed applications and is now enhanced with top-notch mobility features.”

The Nouméa Hospital thrives to ensure premium performances for data and communication management. The Ascom Myco and the Mercury server are solid foundations clinicians can build on. Dosch explains: “In the near future, we plan to enable two new features for our transporters: geolocation and patient identity verification barcode scanning with Myco. These will boost our efficiency and ensure that a transport request is delivered to a transporter in close proximity to the patient.”
