Ascom's latest offering, Ascom Myco, a smartphone with unique features designed to render nurses' work easier, has caught the interest of Belgian hospitals and healthcare institutions. Philippe Bosmans, Sales Manager, Ascom Belgium and Tom Decoo, Senior Account Manager Healthcare, Nextel, a Belgium-based telecoms integrator, explain the benefits of the Ascom Myco and the added value it brings to the hospitals.

The Ascom ecosystem of hospital solutions improves quality and efficiency of care. Ascom Myco is a brand new smartphone in the Ascom portfolio. It comes in two versions: Wi-Fi for use within the confines of a hospital and Wi-Fi/3G enabling calls and data traffic on the public mobile network outside the hospital or as back-up inside the hospital.

Furthermore, Ascom Myco is hygienic and can be disinfected. Its clip allows the Ascom Myco to be securely fastened onto care-givers' coat pockets, and hence permits to be used single-handedly. The battery lasts for an eight hour shift, is easily replaceable and can be charged separately.

Nextel is a Silver Partner of Ascom. As a telecom and datacom integrator they are certified to install and maintain Ascom solutions. In the healthcare space Nextel has a long experience from integrating Ascom Unite, a management platform for mobile devices and alarms, allowing programming and maintenance of all connected mobile devices at once.

Hospitals are constantly looking for enrichment of their communication means and mobility is a very important demand for them. A lot of hospitals earmark a budget for proof of concept purposes and many of them are looking into replacing their classic DECT-based telephony with a mobile solution based on a Wi-Fi network. In Belgium it is especially the Ascom Myco and Ascom i62 handsets that are being evaluated by the nurses.
