With the implementation of INSIGHT in the Emergency Department a Danish hospital analyzed and evaluated the installation over the course of 19 months from June 2009 to January 2011. The results showed an increase in department efficiency of 19%. This was due to an increase in the number of patients by 7,03%, and a decrease in number of employees by 9,3%. Consequently, the number of patients per staff rose from 185 to 218 per year. In addition, 6.400 working hours per year were saved among hospital doctors and nurses who also experienced a number of benefits, such as increased patient safety, better overviews, reduced stress level, fewer disturbances, fewer phone calls, better data and easier location of colleagues.
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.
