Case stories

Increasing department efficiency by 19%

With the implementation of INSIGHT in the Emergency Department a Danish hospital analyzed and evaluated the installation over the course of 19 months from June 2009 to January 2011. The results showed an increase in department efficiency of 19%. This was due to an increase in the number of patients by 7,03%, and a decrease in number of employees by 9,3%. Consequently, the number of patients per staff rose from 185 to 218 per year. In addition, 6.400 working hours per year were saved among hospital doctors and nurses who also experienced a number of benefits, such as increased patient safety, better overviews, reduced stress level, fewer disturbances, fewer phone calls, better data and easier location of colleagues.
Sterile Processing Department at Gentofte Hospital, Denmark

Through integration of robotics and automation our system, which stores sterilized surgical equipment as it exits the autoclaves, has allowed the hospital to significantly reduce unintended incidents as well as staff, making the sterile storage facility much more efficient. The flexibility is second-to-none. Surgeons can order urgent deliveries to take advantage of unforeseen surplus capacity in the surgical wards, or if an operation requires surgical equipment aside from standard equipment ordered during the operation planning phase. Unscheduled orders are priority processed and delivered at an exit bay 45 seconds after order on local work station. Thus, operations may proceed seamlessly regardless of the obstacles encountered along the way, and that operating theatre capacity can be fully exploited at all times.

"Using Goloo's disposable bedpans and urinals we can reduce the risk of infection and pressure ulcers, which improves the patient's experience"
"Here at Daghospitalet we are very happy about the new solution and I've asked a few people and they are also very positive! It is easier to collect faeces from the toilet now ... without the use of paper plates, etc." Lene Neergaard Ass. Ward Gastrointestinal Unit, Herlev Hospital.

100HealthIdeas

In this nonprofit project, we focus on practical solutions that are worth sharing among clinicians and others who are interested in improving our healthcare. We believe in the effect of knowledge sharing without a political agenda, from clinics to clinics across hospitals, regions, sectors, and professions. In the project we identify, describe and share cases that have the following common characteristics: - Cases that benefit the patient - Cases that have not resulted in higher costs - Cases that have found solutions that both ensure a better quality of care and treatment while ensuring more efficient utilization of resources
The Norwegian Radium Hospital – Research Institute

The Norwegian Radium Hospital - Research Institute - was completed in 2009. A single volume comprises the research complex with two wings and a central atrium. The volume is fitted into the landscape on a bastion that contains all plantrooms, storage and parking on the three underground levels. The building represents the cornerstone of a new development structure of the hospital focusing on flexibility in future heavy installations in laboratories with general as well as specialized functions such as gene and cell therapy. The meeting facilities for conferences and seminars as well as informal meetings among the researchers of the institution are essential to an innovative research environment.
