Digitalization puts the patient at the center
The Danish healthcare system faces a number of major challenges in the coming years. The pandemic has created a large workload, which only gets bigger with the demographic development.
Prepare the departments to handle for the upcoming workload
Everyone knows this, but few actually solve the problems before they arise. At Nobly, we expect a huge and long-lasting workload in the healthcare system. Of course, we are already helping to bring it down.
The solution collects data from many places, for example locally in the departments and archives the material correctly in OnBase. This is done to make information available to the EHR/Health Platform.
The work with images in the healthcare system is a focal point for many patient processes. VNA makes it possible to see all patient images – on request. No matter where the image is created and used. It provides a better basis for decision-making.
OnBase Patient Window
The OnBase Patient Window provides access to all content in systems outside the EHR or the Health Platform in a single view. This ensures that healthcare professionals have the information they need to make the decision about the right medical treatment using fewer clicks.
No compromise on quality and patient safety
Research enables us to treat more diseases today than we could yesterday, and we generally live longer, while fewer hands are able to treat us. The challenge will therefore be to create the conditions for a higher flow of patients without compromising on quality and patient safety. It therefore becomes crucial to decouple the manual processes and instead put power to the processes.
An enormous amount of data is generated daily in the Danish healthcare system, which must be digitalized to an even greater degree. If all patient information is not available in the same place, it creates a risk that wrong decisions will be made simply because the information is not available. One solution is to move the patient to the center of the entire process, so that the coordination around the patient is gathered in a digital system, where the information moves smoothly.
By implementing digital solutions, the patient experiences a minimum of waiting time in the treatment process. It thus becomes simple, fast, and transparent to communicate with all parties involved in a patient process.
Digitalization streamlines the process and reduces waiting times, which in the big picture makes it possible to handle more treatments in the healthcare system.
Most time allocated for the patients
At Nobly, with our industry knowledge, competencies, and technology understanding, we can ensure that the healthcare sector has the most time allocated to patients. In this way, we can alleviate the great pressure that the healthcare system is experiencing right now. We do this by collecting existing data, automating manual processes, and ensuring integrations between the systems. We generally create a 360 degree overview.
Information can thus flow freely throughout the hospital to the places where it can be most beneficial, so that diagnoses are always made on as complete a basis as possible. The tools allow you to digitalize and leverage unstructured content throughout your healthcare business and integrate it with the core applications the hospital uses every day: EMRs, image archiving (VNA) and communication systems (PACS), clinical decision support systems (CDS) and much more.
This means that healthcare professionals have easy and quick access to clinical documents, medical images, and other information. In this way, it becomes easier and less resource-intensive to make the right decision about treating patients. This increases efficiency, so that doctors and nurses, among others, have more time for contact with patients. At the same time, it gives increased satisfaction to the employees, who can spend more time on patient contact rather than paperwork – and the patients receive the best possible treatment. In other words, quality and economy will go hand in hand.
Meet one of our happy customers
Odense University Hospital (OUH) is one of Denmark’s largest hospitals with 7,500 employees and more than 1,000 beds. The hospital treats 350,000 inpatients, 60,000 emergency room patients, and 488,000 outpatients annually, and care is provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
OUH has chosen Nobly’s future-proof IT-platform OnBase as the foundation for the hospital’s integrated information platform. OnBase gives authorized, authorized users access to view all documents in all file formats from anywhere – even sterile environments – using the secure web client.
OUH has also assigned the patient’s CPR-number as a keyword for all documents associated with the record. The keyword can be used to immediately find the necessary documents.
Healthcare professionals from all over Europe come to Odense regularly to see the far-sighted processes at OUH, and many use the hospital’s successful methods as a model of ideas for future implementation. The purpose is to streamline processes and improve patient care using a real, long-term EPR (electronic patient record).
