-- – The health group which includes Sant Joan de Déu, Hospital Clínic of Barcelona and the Hospital of Sant Pau are among the top four regional and national hospitals in 2011 according to the consulting firm Iasist, which has been responsible for the yearly study and publication of the top 20 Spanish hospitals for the last twelve years. All of these healthcare organizations use Polymita technology.
The 2011 study, which evaluates overall hospital management, shows that in a tough financial environment the top hospitals are able to achieve greater efficiency than the other participants, with 15% shorter hospital stays, 35% less spending on supplies and 26% higher productivity per worker.
Polymita, IT partner to these centers, has been responsible for the implementation of important projects with a common objective to all the centers, which is to offer excellent service to patients and healthcare professionals, through new information and communication technologies.
Polymita has extensive experience in the healthcare sector, as demonstrated by ongoing affiliations with centers such as the Hospital of Maastricht, Hospital Clínic of Barcelona, Hospital of Vall d’Hebrón, Hospital of Sant Joan of Déu, European Group for Blood & Marrow Transplantation (EMBT), Clínicas Vitaldent, Unidental, The General Hospital of Ciudad Real, or the Medical Emergencies System of Catalunya, where they have designed intranets and clinical trial systems, which model and automate administrative and care processes while unifying access to data and content as well as integrating other medical applications and systems (HL7, PACS, RFID, SAP, etc.).
With these solutions, hospitals using Polymita have achieved improvements to their efficiency and effectiveness, thanks to the optimization of healthcare processes and administrative procedures. They have also managed to ensure accessibility from anywhere on their systems, interoperability and the suitable distribution and use of information.
JACIE has demonstrated how thanks to Polymita it is possible to establish automatic and electronic records management in the process of Hospital certification as they were able to minimize bureaucracy and reduce the certification cycle from one year to four weeks, with a 700% increase in productivity. They now have unlimited capacity for the simultaneous management of certification cases, without ever needing to increase the amount of resources.
On June 30th, the consulting firm Iasist closed nominations for the 2012 Hospital study.
