Amcom Software, a subsidiary of USA Mobility, has received the US Food and Drug Administration approval for its Amcom (Commtech) Messenger middleware.

Amcom Messenger middleware sends critical secondary notifications from patient monitoring and many other clinical and safety systems to staff who carries wireless communication devices.

Messenger middleware aids hospitals to improve patient care by supplementing a monitoring system’s audible notifications with targeted messages to the right caregiver.

Staff devices include Wi-Fi phones, smartphones and pagers which enable hospitals to incorporate their specific needs into their alarm management process.

Amcom Software president Chris Heim said Amcom Messenger helps hospitals improve how quickly staff can react to a variety of time-critical events, which in turn helps improve patient safety and outcomes.
