Smart Hospital

Smart Hospital

To remain viable, hospitals have to clearly define their digital process requirements, since this is the only way they can develop a sound digitization strategy. But there is often uncertainty about the status of digitization within an organization. Our experts undertake a Quick Check to provide a fast and accurate answer to this question. An interdisciplinary project team analyzes, structures and documents the current digital status of your processes. At the end of this stage you are provided with a transparent basis for the development of a digital strategy, which we then help you implement.

To what extent are you impacted by digitization of the healthcare sector?

  • Do you primarily work with paper-based processes?
  • Do you want to or have to promote the use of digital technology in your hospital, but don’t know exactly what the current situation is and where you should be heading?
  • Do you have to align your care and therapy processes with digitization, or are you yet to establish these processes?
  • Do you want to avoid later deployment of standalone solutions as far as possible?
  • Are you aiming to improve structures and processes in the long term – in both care and administration?
  • Do you want to substantially reduce staff workload while at the same time enhancing patient care?
  • Do you want to develop a rigorous and viable digitization concept for your hospital as soon as possible?
  • Do you need specialist advice with regard to the use of possible subsidies?



You have to address the following points:

  • Inventory of the current state of digitization
  • Digitization of processes
  • Patients and staff as beneficiaries of digital processes
  • Enhanced competitiveness through enhanced efficiency
  • AI to increase patient safety
  • Cybersecurity
