Jeroen Bosch Hospital (JBH), an innovative medical center in the Netherlands, wanted to install interactive terminals at patient bedsides that would seamlessly connect doctors to patients. JBH chose Patientline, a leading provider of hospital bedside solutions,
to deliver 800 touch-screen terminals in an intelligent system anchored by Windows Embedded. Managed by Patientline, the integrated solution will give patients and staff access to multimedia entertainment, communications tools, and electronic health records.
In addition, Patientline cut time-to-market in half and reduced related IT maintenance costs by 40 percent, while the hospital expects to gain 50 percent (return on investment) ROI by offering additional services. The hospital reports that the familiar interface
is easy to use, and that patients are empowered and healthier in a more collaborative, connected environment.
