Quick and easy, iMedOne gives hospital staff more time with patients

TietoEnatorThe Bundesknappschaft hospital in Bochum-Langendreer, Germany, cares for a large number of patients and subsequently generates a lot of information. TietoEnator's easy-to-use hospital information system, iMedOne, is therefore vital for staff to be able to devote more time to their patients.

iMedOne, designed on the philosophy of keeping all information on one platform and making access as easy as possible, whether the user is a doctor, accountant or receptionist at the outpatient clinic, suited the hospital perfectly.

Deputy hospital administrative director Thomas Tatka says the Bochum-Langendreer team was pleased with the decision to implement iMedOne and sees "the greatest potential" in the system.

He says iMedOne is also expected to bring about increased efficiency and optimised work processes. "iMedOne offers great opportunities, especially in the areas of order communication and medical reporting," he says. "This system makes information available very quickly and offers a variety of analytical tools."

Put simply, data collected at a patient's beside can be entered immediately, without a change of format, and can be accessed directly by those needing it. As it is built on a database, there is no redundancy – no repeat entries – and all patient documentation, from medical and nursing histories, examination documentation to admission information and discharges, is in one place.

The system interface is designed to give workers the information they need for the job at hand, so the same system gives both the outpatient receptionist and the x-ray clinician data relevant to their work.
