Ascom and Houle partner on nurse call system in Penticton
May 23, 2018
PENTICTON, BC – Ascom, a leading global healthcare Information and Communication Technology (ICT) provider, announced that its partner, Houle, will complete a large Ascom Telligence nurse call installation at Penticton Regional Hospital, an Interior Health facility in British Columbia.
With 155 beds and five ORs, the campus-wide implementation includes the hospital’s new tower as well as its existing building, and will be the sole nurse call system in use.
Ascom’s Telligence nurse call is a scalable clinical workflow and communications management solution that supports both centralized and decentralized care models and integrates with wireless devices to ensure that patient calls are rapidly delivered to the appropriate caregiver, regardless of location.
Ascom’s integrated network of staff and patient-room devices ensures that the right information is delivered to the right caregiver, at the right time, for appropriate responses and simplified workflows.
“An important reason for the selection of the Telligence platform is the system’s ability to provide instant communications and audio connections to staff mobile devices with near zero second delay,” said Levis Veilleux of Houle.
“We partnered with Ascom to demonstrate that capability, which was accepted and included by the design team in their initial process,” he added. “Houle is actively including Telligence in many more projects and looks forward to helping more facilities maximize their nurse call investment to provide more patient-centered care.”
Rob Goldman, president of Ascom North America, said, “Our new partnership with Houle in British Columbia is already proving extremely fruitful, as they are very active and engaged in their market. Working with Houle, Ascom looks forward to helping more facilities close digital information gaps and enable more responsive and informed clinical communication and collaboration.”
