Williams takes over from O'Farrell as Ascom ANZ head

Healthcare ICT and mobile workflow solutions vendor Ascom has named David Williams as the new managing director for the Australian and New Zealand region, taking over from Feargal O’Farrell, who led the local arm of the Swiss company for three years.

Previously Ascom's sales director for the ANZ region, Mr Williams has a background in medical imaging and extensive experience with healthcare solution providers including Kodak, Comrad, Carestream Health, IP Health and Cerner.

Mr Williams said the Ascom healthcare platform was making a difference in supporting everyday clinical workflow challenges. New and updated solutions include the Telligence nurse call system and the Ascom i63 handset.

The company recently helped St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne to manage one of the Victorian government’s four COVID-19 isolation and recovery facilities (CIRFs), in conjunction with the Brotherhood of St Laurence and Launch Housing, which were set up to assist people experiencing or at risk of homelessness during the pandemic.

To support the facility and frontline workers, Ascom rolled out a fully functional emergency communication platform with integrated voice, duress and messaging capability.

The platform included Ascom D81, a rugged IP65-rated DECT handset, supported by Ascom’s DURAsuite end-to-end duress management offering.
