Founded by the religious order of the Cellitinnen in 1874, the Krankenhaus der Augustinerinnen (Hospital of the Augustinians) started as a noble initiative by two sisters in Cologne, Germany. Since then, the hospital has continued to pave the way in innovations through continuous expansions and modern advancements, which has notably led to the first private X-ray department being opened in Cologne in 1913. Today, the hospital provides general and specialised patient treatment, and also serves as a comprehensive training ground for medical students and staff.
Extensive expansions to the Krankenhaus der Augustinerinnen have allowed for greater patient care across medicine, management, nursing, as well as pastoral care. With more rooms, wings and sectors, the hospital now facilitates treatment and training for a substantially larger amount of people each day. Modern advancements has meant that patient consultations and treatments are completed faster than ever before. To ensure the safety of all patients and staff, the hospital needed an efficient system to streamline the cleaning process of each room between patient consultations.
To boost patient safety and hospital efficiency, wizAI solutions GmbH and Philips Professional Display Solutions teamed up to create a custom installation for the Krankenhaus der Augustinerinnen. Together, an intelligent system that displays interactive hospital floor plans, cleaning schedules, hygiene requirements, and room availabilities was developed and rolled out across the site.
A suite of Philips T-Line Touch Displays was chosen to provide staff with the ultimate convenience in making status updates for each treatment room in an instant. An easy-to-use Management Console linked the screens with the hospital’s existing computers and tablets to provide live updates across all screens. This has resulted in an optimised cleaning process that allows for faster patient intake with a lower cost of operation
Gunnar Schneider, Managing Director at Krankenhaus der Augustinerinnen, commented: “The effective use of resources and optimal utilization of rooms is essential for the best possible care. Cleaning App supports us in this. Compliments to the wiz AI team, who exceeded our expectations with the system.”
Rainer Bloch, Business Director, DACH at PPDS, added: “Running on Android, our range of displays, whether 10” or 86”, provide not only premium quality and reliable hardware, but have the flexibility to compliment third party providers, ensuring customers have a solution that works around their needs. We’re delighted to have been part of such a transformative project, one which potentially benefits tens of thousands of people a year.”
