Digital Vision is a project which realises the visions for the hospital of the future at one department at Odense University Hospital (OUH).
VISIONER BLIVER VIRKELIGHED
Digital Vision represents a new approach to digital hospital transformation where we will perform a ‘deep dive’ into the work flows, patient segments and current challenges of one hospital department in order to achieve full benefit of the digital potential and realise the possible synergies of a thorough transition to digital workflows.
First phase of the project is to analyse the existing use of IT systems and digital tools to identify problem areas within the IT systems themselves and integration between systems. Next, innovative tools already in use in other departments will be implemented to get the full benefit of synergies and integrations.
Finally, the project will identify ‘digital gaps’ where OUH does not currently have solutions at the hospital to cover the need and then find or develop solutions specifically for that area.
Digital Vision aims to ensure smooth work flows, free time for the patients, reorganise activities and ease patient pathways. It will prepare the department for New OUH (the new hospital in Odense) – and create a model for similar transition of the other departments at OUH.
Digital Vision will be put into practice at the Department of Gastroenterology at OUH from 2019-2021, after which the concept is expected to be scaled up for other departments at OUH.
