Covid-19 and the tragic costs of outdated hospital communication technology

Pagers, DECT phones, switchboards and fax machines. Would you trust these devices to quickly transmit information that could save your life? Many hospitals in Switzerland, the U.S. and other technologically advanced countries still do, with sometimes fatal consequences. But Covid-19 was a wake-up call for the industry and acts a catalyser to accelerate digitalisation.
Komed Health provides a secure messaging platform that can be connected with existing clinical systems in order to accelerate collaboration among medical staff, and ultimately benefiting the patient. A hospital in the hard-hit region of Ticino rolled out the real-time communication system during the crisis, desperate for a more efficient means of sharing patient information in its battle against time.
