Will deliver nursecall system to Hospital Sirio Libanês
SAO PAULO, Brazil--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ascom’s partner in Brazil, Eritel Telecom Ltda. has signed a very important contract with Hospital Sírio Libanês (HSL) in Sao Paulo. The hospital will double its patient capacity, and Eritel will supply Ascom nursecall equipment for the new buildings.
With a growing demand for superior healthcare, HSL recently decided to double its capacity with two more towers for 350 new patient beds to be ready in 2013/14.
After a thorough analysis including internal research with nurses, doctors and operational staff, HSL finally selected Ascom teleCARE IP as the winner. Ascom’s Brazilian partner Eritel has played a very important role in securing the order.
The key reasons for the decision are the use of the same LAN infrastructure, traceability of staff with ID RFID Mifare Classic, error monitoring in any point of the system, operational simplicity and the great experience with Ascom equipment in terms of performance, flexibility, reliability and durability.
”We are very proud to be the supplier of this critical mission solution. It will increase the productivity of nurses and doctors and offer more mobility and time with the patients but also enhance the patient security”, says Dennis Andersson, Vice President Global Sales at Ascom Wireless Solutions.
Hospital Sirio Libanes is a traditional healthcare institution of Sao Paulo, Brazil, founded in 1931. It is known for excellent medical services and continuous investments in modern technology. Ascom and Eritel have been suppliers to HSL since 1989.
The CIO of HSL, Ms. Margareth Ortiz de Camargo mentioned that several key points were considered in the selection process. However the positive experience with teleCARE M in the past years and the professional competence of the Ascom local partner Eritel on implementing specific solutions for sophisticated requirements from HSL, made the whole difference.
Eritel is the exclusive partner of Ascom Wireless Solution products in Brazil. The company was founded in 1989.
