Recent Customer Reviews on Virtual Visits
The size of the screen and sound quality has made a huge difference for our residents. Even the residents with poorer eyesight could make out their loved ones on the screen.
We can roll it into a room with someone that is infectious and still maintain a proper social distance and the residents could still see and hear! We intend to still use it for the long distance family even after restrictions are lifted.
Jim L. Hospice Liaison / Grace Hospice
The large screens work great for Zoom and video chats with multiple people. We had one resident on Thanksgiving do a Zoom call with a large family and multiple families logged on. The large screen allowed her to see them in gallery mode without them being too small to see. It was great!
Thanks for your work in helping to get these lovely devices to us. We are most grateful.

ASCOM Myco™ 3 smartphone has been listed on the target platform for the Epic Rover healthcare application.
For Ascom Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Francis Schmeer, the listing is, “yet another exciting step forward for the Ascom Myco 3 smartphone.” The device works with apps such as Rover to connect clinicians to patient data, colleagues and IT systems—helping to streamline workflows, boost productivity and ultimately contribute to enhanced patient satisfaction and outcomes.
Schmeer also points to the app’s interoperability with the Ascom Myco 3 embedded barcode scanner as an example of how the smartphone enables mobile functionality for clinicians. “The Ascom Myco 3 barcode scanner lets clinicians securely identify patients, medications and colleagues at the point of care and while on the go. It’s a clear illustration of how the smartphone benefits busy clinicians, enabling smooth access to key data, and the ability to communicate and coordinate with colleagues, systems and patients.”
