The integration enables alerts from STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout® Real-Time Location System (RTLS) solutions to be sent via Ascom Unite to a variety of staff members’ mobile devices, including smartphones. Applications include staff assist, asset management, infant and patient protection and alerts to out-of-range temperature conditions in refrigerated storage units.

The direct access to this critical information on the location, condition and status of assets, staff and patients enables healthcare providers to make better and more coordinated decisions for streamlined workflows and better patient care.

The addition of real-time location data from STANLEY Healthcare’s solutions further extends the reach of Ascom Unite, a powerful middleware platform that connects mission-critical systems with mobile staff members, delivering advanced two-way messaging to a variety of mobile devices.

"Ascom Unite Messaging Suite and this RTLS solution are a powerful combination for supporting interactive messaging for RTLS events such as high value asset movement, patient tracking, and staff location," says Magnus Lönnroth, Director R&D Product Line Unite Solutions, Ascom Wireless Solutions. "We’re pleased healthcare providers can see first-hand how these solutions work together at the STANLEY Healthcare Customer Experience Center in Waltham, Massachusetts."

"This partnership builds on STANLEY Healthcare’s large network of integration partnerships that extend the power of RTLS by delivering critical information at the point of care," says Nadav Barkaee, Product Manager for Integrations and Mobile Applications at STANLEY Healthcare. "Interoperability with Ascom provides hospitals, health systems and senior living communities with a highly effective means to empower staff with the information they need to do their jobs efficiently for the best patient and resident experience."
