University Hospital Pécs, Hungary – Perinatal Intensive Care

 

T-Systems Hungary has implementedmedicalandIT solutions at the University of Pécs, at Neonatology Department of Obstetricsand Gynaecology and at Department of Pediatrics Perinatal Intensive Care (PIC) from European Union fund in the amount of 1.6 Million Euros.

The Customer

The Neonatology Department of Obstetricsand Gynaecology has23neonatal intensive care(80-90%bed utilization) and10preterm infants (50-60% utilization) beds.The primary objective is the care ofpremature infants and infants born at full termbut need intensivecare.

The challenge

At theperinatalintensive care units there is a permanent medical supervision and care of vulnerable premature infants bornbeforethe34thweek of pregnancy, weightof less than1,500grams. In order to ensure the appropriate care for premature infants with verylow birth weight,significantprofessionalandtechnical capacity, as well ashighly specializedequipment(incubators, ventilator, infusion pump, ultrasound, EEG, laboratory, guardmonitoretc.) are required.In addition, a state-of-art IT system is unconceivable for an efficient medical care.

The solution

The Consortium, led by T -Systems has established a complex, well-equipped perinatal intensive care unit at the two above mentioned clinics in Pécs: 133 modern medical equipment has been delivered, and a special integrated medical informatics solution has been installed, furthermore significant medical and IT modernization has been implemented.

For the delivery of medical equipment and the special medical chart- system the Hungarian representation of Philips HealthCare Ltd, Medexpert Ltd has been appointed as partner. T-Systems has ensured the development of the IT infrastructure, delivered servers , networking, workstations, portable medical sterilizable tablets and has integrated its own developed eMedSolution hospital information system, which operates in most of the hospitals in Hungary.

At both clinics a central monitor system has been installed, which allows the operator to monitor the vital signs of patients and to intervene if necessary. The information system (medical chart system ) collects real-time data from the patient's guardian monitors, incubators, infusion pumps and ventilators, thereby makes observation automatic, furthermore this system supports prescribing  and through the interface to the eMedSolution hospital information system it allows the takeover of  patients' laboratory data and the usage of patient records.

The customer benefit

The realized project is a leap forwardconcerning the patient security, as the highly advancedincubators,ventilators, infusion pumps, ultrasoundmachines, EEG machines, monitors and ITinvestments allow that kind ofdata inputandtreatment options, which providefurther opportunities for infants bornwith verylow weightand / or sickpremature babiesnotonly for survive, but for thebasics ofquality way of adult life.

Outlook

Currently in Hungary22regionalperinatalintensive care units operate(PIC Perinatal IntensiveCentrum), with typically agingmachineries, therefore the European Union subsidies (2.2.2SIOP/C andCHOP4.3.1/B) in the amount of millions of Eurosoffer an enormous opportunity, by whichallPICs could replace almost their entiremachinery parks. The Consortiumledby T-Systems has already contracted in the amount ofnearly5 Million Euros(The following hospitals are involved: Veszprém, Szombathely, Pécs, Debrecen,Tatabánya). University of Pécs is our thirdsuccessfulPICprojectsimplementedon time.
