Workflower automates the MRSA screening and treatment process at Jan Yperman


WORKFLOWER USE CASE

Hospitals must absolutely monitor hospital bacteria such as MRSA. When laboratory results indicate that a patient is infected, or when an infected patient is admitted, the hospital must begin the necessary processes as quickly as possible. This includes not only starting treatment for the patient, but also isolating the patient and taking appropriate measures for everyone who came into contact with him, to prevent the bacteria from spreading to the other patients. Transparent coordination and communication between laboratory, nursing and hospital hygienists is indispensable. Read more

AZ Sint-Lucas Brugge automates follow-up of applications from patients who want access to their medical records

WORKFLOWER USE CASE

Patients have a legal right to review their medical records and to request a copy of them. Forms are available from the hospital’s ombud or the hospital website. The patient simply returns the completed form to the hospital.

But how does the hospital make sure the application ends up with the right person? Does the application meet all requirements, and is it handled within the legal deadlines? What about the privacy of the patient and the GDPR regulations? And how can a hospital respond to the growing number of applications as patients become increasingly involved in their own care? At face value it should be a simple process, but it’s not that obvious…

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

WORKFLOWER USE CASE

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. Plus, the forms themselves can get lost or misplaced. And if a request gets stuck, you can’t see where the bottleneck is, or follow up on the status of approvals.
