Buckinghamshire Trust to upgrade hospital messaging and communication systems
Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust has selected Multitone Electronics to supply and implement a range of integrated critical messaging solutions.
The Trust, which provides care for over half a million people annually, and employs 6,000 clinical staff, currently uses a legacy system at its Amersham and Wycombe Hospitals, and will use Multitone as its principal supplier across its acute sites, for equipment including a new digital platform incorporating a number of Smartphone Multitone Appear Messaging licences. The systems’ selection follows the recent successful completion of upgrade implementation at Stoke Mandeville Hospital near Aylesbury ‘using state-of-the-art digital technology’ – the Multitone i-Message Platform and Appear Messaging.
The new Trust-wide project will secure the interconnection of all three main sites, maintaining local resilience in the event of network failure. This also includes alarm integration of key system components such as mains or transmitter malfunction.
Peter Lomax, Multitone’s Sales & Marketing director, said: “Multitone Electronics is delighted that the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust has chosen us as a trusted supplier to implement a number of key integrating messaging solutions across the county. Multitone has worked in partnership with the NHS for more than six decades. We believe our significant experience and access to the latest technology is crucial to ensuring health sector staff have the messaging and communication tools they need, benefiting the patients they care for.”
