Efficient use of performance data

Centralised monitoring

With easy-to-read overviews of the current hospital situation, caregivers and management have a valuable tool for making sustainable decisions for a single department or across the hospital. The visual dashboards are updated in real-time, providing an accurate picture of the current and near-future flow to and from the hospital. The solution is designed for fast decoding in a multi-monitor setup, but is also available for data deep-diving from coordinator and management workstations.
