In the surgical department INSIGHT provides overview of the daily surgery schedule, the staff and the current situation in each operating room. This information is not only beneficial to the staff in the surgical department, but also to staff in supporting departments, who will know exactly when to expect the patient. A number of studies have been conducted regarding productivity gains from implementing INSIGHT. Findings have revealed that operating rooms running INSIGHT were 15% more time-efficient than rooms without INSIGHT. The same study found that the surgical department experienced an overall productivity gain of 4% per year (estimated DRG-value).
Cleveland Clinic has had 81 automated vehicles installed. The AVGs cover more than 1700 km everyday and transports linen, food, waste and medical equipment in their various destinations within the hospital. In this application, the use of the AGV has resulted in a harmonious goods transport over long distances without collisions. Previously, heavy rolling carts had to be moved via steep ramps. Now, the AGV does this work both in an ergonomical, safe and efficient way.

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 new Odense University Hospital (OUH) embodies an innovative building of high architectural quality, designed to meet the requirements and challenges of tomorrow. Like the goddess Aurora, the hospital finds renewal in the transition between old and new – and the conversion from tradition to modernity. The human scale supports the conception of the hospital as ”the good host” and a place where patients and visitors can easily orient themselves and feel at home. When approaching Aurora, you are met by an inviting and recognisable urban scale, where the complex is divided into varied units with each their clear entrance and reception area. The individual is in focus in the circular city structure whose ground plan meets the requirements for a highly efficient, flexible and future-proof hospital and at the same time meets the employees, patients and other users where they are and with a high degree of respect.
