Hospitals using Systematic’s software among the world’s leading hospitals

Nine hospitals using Systematic’s software are ranked in the top among the world’s best hospitals using digital solutions to optimise daily tasks and improve patient care.

The American news magazine “Newsweek” has released this year’s list of the 2022 World’s Best Hospitals in collaboration with the data research firm Statista Inc.

During the past two years, hospitals have been in the front line of fighting covid, and they’ve been forced to quickly adapt to new challenges and improvise on the fly. The hospitals, that have handled the pandemic the best, are those who have learned to work faster by communicating better and breaking down internal silos.

And this is exactly what Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset, Aarhus University Hospital and Rigshospital København have done. Common to these hospitals – which are ranked 8, 19 and 26 on the list – is that they use Systematic’s software in their daily planning and operation. In total nine hospitals using Systematic’s solutions are in the top 150 of the world’s best hospitals.

Innovation centred around patient care

What sets the leading hospitals apart is their ability to continually innovate and at the same time keep focus on the most important: making patient care better. For hospitals to maintain their top status and progress during a global pandemic, the key is to continually drive innovation. At Aarhus University Hospital, ranked no. 19 on the list, the extensive use of data makes it possible to give patients a feeling of being expected and welcome.

“When a patient comes to be treated by us – whether planned or an emergency – the healthcare professionals can easily find the patient’s medical records and look at their medical history, previous courses of treatment and other relevant information. This means that our patients feel both expected and welcome, which is important for a good, safe and reassuring course of treatment,” explains Jørgen Schøler Kristensen, Chief Medical Officer at Aarhus University Hospital.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also proven how data can save resources in daily hospital operations.

“Well-functioning IT systems enable us to handle crisis situations like COVID-19 more effectively. We’ve been using digital logistics systems to control patient flow, which has been a great help for patients and staff alike. Not just at one hospital, but across all the hospitals in the region with real-time overviews. We’ve also seen the advantages of being able to make changes quickly in the IT systems so that they support the new conditions in a crisis situation,” explains Jørgen Schøler Kristensen.

Data-based comparison across the world

The 2022 list represents data from a total of over 2,200 hospitals in 27 countries. The goal of the study is to provide a data-based comparison of hospital reputation and performance across all countries.
