Lille Regional Teaching University Hospital—a leading provider of healthcare in northern France—wanted to provide a better experience for patients and improve staff workflow. To meet its goals, the hospital replaced stand-alone TVs in each room with a Microsoft
technology–based solution that includes Care and Comfort bedside terminals running Windows Embedded, Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SharePoint Server, and in the future, Skype. As a result, the hospital can keep patients connected to their
lives outside the hospital and help medical staff improve workflow by automating manual processes and simplifying access to information. In addition, the terminals are simple for patients of all ages to use, and the solution is easily deployed and managed,
which the hospital anticipates will ease future expansion.
