Communication of the future
Hospitals of Isala
Isala is one of the leading hospital operators in the Netherlands, employing more than six thousand caregivers nationwide. The company has already relied on Visocall IP not only at the top hospital in Zwolle, but also at the Heerde and Harthuis sites. Now the hospital communication system is also being used at the new hospital in Meppel.
The innovative hospital operator Isala has once again opted for Visocall IP at its Meppel site - as a result, around 1,300 patient beds are now equipped with the modern communication system from Schrack Seconet.
Less space - same quality of care
The hospital in Meppel reduced its space from 40,000 m² to 17,690 m² in the course of a renovation. This reduction was achieved through targeted digitalisation and the use of reliable care systems, without sacrificing specialist areas. Maximum availability of critical systems is a top priority at Isala, and the installation of redundant systems is an important tool in this strategy. Systems are thus operated as efficiently as possible and patients and nursing staff can rely on the highest standards.
Functionalities that convince
Redundancy and availability were also two decisive reasons for Isala to choose Visocall IP. Wim de Zee, Isala Kliniken, states: "We are a long-standing customer of Visocall IP and its partner Cruxin. Visocall IP is second to none in terms of functionalities as well as redundancy and offers the highest possible availability to protect patients." Indeed, the state-of-the-art hospital communication system enables maximum uptime and ensures optimal contact with patients - staff can respond quickly and appropriately to different calls.
Innovative solution for modern hospitals
Isala's largest hospital in Zwolle alone has over 1,000 beds and more than 75 departments. Together with the hospitals in Meppel, Heerde and Harthuis, around 1,300 beds are now connected to Visocall IP. Jürgen Tichy, Area Sales Manager for the Netherlands, comments: "It is an honour to contribute to the future of these modern hospitals with our innovative IP system!"
Digitalisation in the health care sector
Visocall IP is an important building block for Isala with regard to a future-oriented alignment of hospitals in line with the technological possibilities and the challenges of the future. The company recognised the potential of digital solutions early on and took concrete steps in this direction. Innovations such as telemonitoring have therefore been actively promoted for several years. At Isala, a Connected Care Centre makes it possible for patients in many situations to no longer have to come to hospital, but to remain in their familiar surroundings at home - mobile terminals ensure ongoing contact and reliable care by the caring team. Isala is also part of the STZ, the association of leading teaching hospitals in the Netherlands, and supports applied scientific research.
