As part of our interview series “3 Questions for…”, we talk to Marcel Schevemann, Segment Manager Healthcare Solutions at Ascom DACH, about visions in the field of digitalization and the partnership between CLINARIS and Ascom.

1. What is your company’s service portfolio?

Ascom is a global solution provider focusing on ICT solutions for healthcare and mobile workflow solutions. Ascom’s vision is to bridge digital information gaps to ensure the best possible decisions – anytime, anywhere. In doing so, the Ascom Healthcare Platform combines vendor-independent ICT and medical technology, the visualization of patient event information on ward dashboards and mobile devices. This makes it possible, for example, to support clinical decisions (Clinical Decision Support) and, with some medical devices, to already implement a Distributed Alarm System (VAS).

2. What is your vision for the cooperation between Ascom and CLINARIS?

CLINARIS is one of the first partners in our app partner ecosystem “Myco & Friends”. This is a partner network with Android apps specially developed for the healthcare sector that make the Ascom smartphone “Myco” a universal multitool for nurses, doctors and many other employees in hospitals. In addition, we are working with CLINARIS on technological integration to make real-time localization and targeted tracking of mobile assets even more valuable in our solutions.

3. What has been the biggest milestone in your collaboration with CLINARIS until now?

We’ve already had many activities with CLINARIS. For example, the CLINARIS presentations at our booth at the DMEA in Berlin and the frequent participation of CLINARIS in the Ascom Healthcare Roadshow are worth mentioning.

The biggest milestone in our collaboration is our jointly realized project “Move the Data – not the Caregiver!” in the 2022 digitalization competition of the Entscheiderfabrik. Together with 6 industry partners, we implemented projects at Bonn University Hospital and Rostock University Medical Center, demonstrating how the targeted distribution of information can help relieve the burden on caregivers.
