Workflower streamlines internal ordering for one-off purchases at AZ Nikolaas


Your laptop is breaking down and you urgently need a new one. The supply of insulin pumps is almost depleted. The medication refrigerator is due for replacement. Toys are needed for the Saint Nicolas celebration. The list of items a hospital needs to order is virtually endless…

And the ordering procedures can be quite complex, especially when they are paper-based.  First, it takes a long time to complete the approval flow so the product can actually be ordered.

Sint-Rembert and Sint-Augustinus hospitals share powerful MRI scanner… and Amaron takes care of the interfaces

In July, two Belgian hospitals – Sint-Rembert hospital in Torhout and Sint-Augustinus hospital in Veurne – jointly put into service a 6000-kg MRI with a 3-Tesla magnetic field. The more powerful the MRI magnetic field, the sharper the images, enabling visualization of back or brain injuries at an early stage.

At the same time, the two hospitals’ RIS and PACS, from different suppliers, had to be integrated. The project was an ideal fit for Amaron.
