Customer cases: Fujitsu

Fujitsu as the connecting link between Relined and Deventer Hospital

Specialists, GPs and other medical professionals must be able to access the right patient information in an efficient and safe manner at all times in order to offer high-quality care. Deventer Hospital and Huisartsen Coöperatie Deventer e.o. (Cooperative of GPs in Deventer and the surrounding area) have created the SallandNet Breedband network for this, in collaboration with Relined Fiber Network and Fujitsu.

This dedicated network includes the underlying ICT infrastructure and workstations for all the affiliated GPs and nurses. Relined provides the reliable Dark Fiber connections for the network.

Every month, more than 11,000 requests for lab work are submitted fully automatically; completely error-free and extremely fast. ECGs and very large graphics files such as X-ray images can also be shared quickly and easily. Partly thanks to this network, healthcare is made more efficient.

Needs

Reliable connections for Deventer Hospital, one of Fujitsu’s customers, and its regional care partners to ensure efficient and secure medical data exchange on a regional scale. The dedicated professionals feel a strong sense of commitment to the patients and often collaborate in multidisciplinary teams to provide the right care.

These activities are underpinned by a keen focus on new medical developments. For example, healthcare in Deventer is completely organised around digital patient records. This approach targets reducing errors and making care safer and more efficient.

Solution

A Dark Fiber network that connects Deventer Hospital with 30 GP practices and other organisations in the region: the Salland Net Breedband network. Fujitsu arranged construction of the network to each of the various care locations, connection to the Relined network and provided all the active equipment. As the owner of the network, Relined delivers the connections and is responsible for physically maintaining the fibre optic system.

Ron Klaas, Fujitsu: “As an innovator, we like to work with Relined and have done so ever since the company was founded in 2003. We have completed several care projects together as business partners and jointly offer excellent conditions and a reliable network to Deventer Hospital and several other customers in healthcare.”
