Every crisis provides the opportunity to re-evaluate our ways. The COVID-19 situation is no different and this pandemic has put the focus on our healthcare system. What has to change in the healthcare of the future? CEO Jan Flament and chief physician Dr Jos Opheide of the Belgian hospital Ziekenhuis Geel share their vision.
With the 'mijnzol.be' patient portal, the Belgian hospital Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg (ZOL) gives patients more control over their own care process. This participation increases patient satisfaction and streamlines the healthcare process.
Belgian hospital Ziekenhuis Geel involved nurses in the shaping of electronic health record (EHR) HiX, as they comprise the largest share of end users. Ann Mertens, nurse manager of the Cardiology department, eagerly participated in this opportunity.
Just before the third corona wave hit, the Albert Schweitzer hospital rolled out the HiX Mobile app in the COVID department. Sjoerd de Boer (Project Manager I&A) and Esther van Es (Nurse and CNIO) were closely involved in the implementation process. They talk about the implementation and the workplace experiences.
As soon as hospitals complete the process of selecting an EHR and choose HiX, they will start preparing for the implementation. This preparatory phase has its own specific challenges for Hospital Network ZNA and hospital organisation GZA, which have started the implementation of a shared electronic health record.
Erasmus Medical Centre takes the next step in healthcare innovation by further utilising EHR HiX' standard open content and implementing its newest functionalities. This way, the university hospital capitalises on the possibilities currently offered by the EHR. And boosts topics of strategic importance to the hospital, including easing the registration burden for healthcare professionals, patient participation, and digital cooperation.
Gerdy Klein Bleumink, Information Manager at Rijnstate Hospital, is chair of the Patient user group. Together with the other members of the group and ChipSoft, Gerdy strives to optimise and further develop the patient portal.
Hospital groups ZNA and GZA selected an EHR to support the joint organisational goals they set. They explain how the main criteria (implementation competence, functionality and price) led to their choice for HiX.
The Canisius Wilhelmina Hospital (CWZ) recently hosted a webinar on implementing and using EHR HiX for dialysis. Read on to discover some of their main tips.
