US-based healthcare services provider UnitingCare Health has selected on-site wireless communication solutions provider Ascom to provide its Workstation on Wheels (WoW) solution for St Stephens Hospital in Queensland, Australia.
The solution has been designed to provide a fully integrated nursing station that optimises the patient care process by enabling mobile point-of-care.
Ascom will provide the hospital with a solution based on the technical and ergonomic advantages provided by the Advantech AMiS-50 WoW’s together with the integrated MedProx cabinets from Elliott Data.
Ascom sales and marketing director Feargal O’Farrell said: "The fact that UnitingCare Health chose Ascom as supplier for their mobile solution proves the clinical and operational value of the recently introduced Advantech AMiS-50 WoWs.
"This is an important milestone for us on the Australian market, we are also delighted by the ease of integration with the Elliott Data Systems MedProx dispensary cabinets, which the hospital deemed as vital in their care model."
The WoW solution will help St Stephens hospital streamline its communication and improve care for its patients.
Ascom’s solution includes 45 Advantech AMiS-50 WoWs that features integrated Medprox medication dispensing cabinets designed to improve critical clinical systems, such as bedside documentation and beside medication administration.
Advantech AMiS-50 WoWs also features neat cable routing to avoid snagging and for easy cleaning and management; fanless operation for improved infection control; button control motor lifter for height adjustment; and larger wheels to decrease the amount of force needed to operate, which enables easier movement on all floor types.
In addition, the solution comes with industrial grade battery for longer computer run time and has the ability to customise to individuals/hospitals with more than 30 different attachments.
UnitingCare Health eHealth Solution project manager Maryanne Cook said: "Our nurses and anesthetists selected the Ascom WoW solution for its functionality and pleasing aesthetics.
"Its large touchscreen, practical medication drawers, motorised elevation and long battery life together with an easy-to-clean design and ease to manoeuver distinguishes Advantech AMiS-50 from the competition.
"The Ascom solution provides capability that will meet our hospital requirements and complement our working environment."
