From an insular solution to a common platform
Future-proofing for healthcare using networked structures
As a result of historical development, there is an array of solutions in hospitals and clinics, which render quick and efficient communication impossible. Various interfaces between individual systems, cost pressure, more stringent regulations and restrictions, changes in legislation, the lack of trained experts and the increasing workload for documentation all help to paint a picture of the situation, in which IP-based data networks (IP: Internet Protocol) provide the optimal solution.
Contemporary communication as a matter of course: Telephony for staff and patients, nurse call, internal communication with nursing staff, reachability (mobile end devices) etc.
Information is available quickly - everywhere: Operating status, costs, medical data, information/entertainment for patients (Internet and Intranet), information for the management, locations of staff members and devices etc.
Security is of utmost importance: Patient safety and staff security, failure safety, future safety, safety of investments, cost safety, data security, etc.
Care and service quality increases while costs fall: The optimisation of all processes increases the quality of all services and improves the ability to compete.
