University of Santiago Hospital: Meeting Medical Demand
University of Santiago Hospital Complex provides physicians with anywhere, anytime data access with Intel® technology
The hospital complex of the University of Santiago de Compostela (CHUS) in northern Spain is a reference center within the network of the Galician Healthcare Service (SERGAS). It can accommodate around 1,400 patients and employs approximately 7,000 healthcare professionals.
The physicians at the hospital demand the capacity to assess any patient’s clinical history, wherever they are. Besides checking on existing data, they need to be able to give instructions about treatments and have them recorded quickly and accurately. This takes devices that can integrate well with the organization’s existing systems and infrastructure. At the same time, they must be easy for busy professionals to use.
The organization recognized that new mobile computing devices with Intel® technology and Microsoft Windows* 8 could help satisfy these demands, so it chose to assess their capabilities.
The hospital evaluated Samsung 700T1C* 2 in 1 devices powered by Intel® Core™ i5 processors and Lenovo ThinkPad* 2 tablets powered by Intel® Atom™ processors in the emergency room (ER) of the hospital. It is an area where clinicians are constantly on the go, from the moment a patient is registered in triage. In this dynamic environment, any improvement in accessing information is very important.
