Intensive Care Conference

GE Healthcare with it’s partner Integrated Wireless (IW) attended the ANZICS/ACCCN Intensive care conference in Hobart, Tasmania (17-18th of October).

The Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) is the leading advocate on all intensive care related matters in Australia & NZ. ANZICS leads the world in intensive care research through its Clinical Trials Group and patient databases. The ANZICS conference bring together intensive care (IC) specialists to listen to subject matter experts and to see the latest IC technology.

IW demonstrated the latest Ascom Mobile Monitoring Gateway (MMG) that in near real time dispatches GE Carescape patient monitoring alarm information to mobile clinical staff carrying Ascom wireless handhelds.
Ascom MMG is the only TGA approved secondary monitoring solution available in the Australian marketplace.

MMG provides…
·         Improved response time to critical patient events
·         Reduced ”alarm fatigue” through smart alarm management
·         Increased efficiency of nursing staff by avoiding unnecessary interruption
·         Increase patient satisfaction and quality of care
Ascom MMG also enables the presentation of waveforms from Carescape on the Ascom wireless handhelds.

The response to the Ascom MMG solution was exceptionally positive with many client’s expressing keen interest. Overall ANZICS was a great event and a fantastic chance to engage and talk to IC practitioners.
