CompuGroup Medical integrates St. Marien Hospital Ratingen into a telematics infrastructure (TI)

In addition to the successful rollout of the telematics infrastructure in medical practices (cur-rently around 25,000) and medical care centers, CompuGroup Medical SE (CGM) is now connecting an increasing number of hospitals to the digital data highway for the healthcare sector. Only a few weeks after signing the contract, the St. Marien Hospital in Ratingen now has a running connection to the telematics infrastructure in five outpatient clinics.

The St. Marien Hospital has long used CGM CLINICAL for patient data management in the inpa-tient and outpatient areas. Thanks to the TI conformity of CGM CLINICAL – confirmed by ge-matik – the conditions for a TI entry were ideal. The attractive funding opportunities and the additional value-added applications arising from the telematics infrastructure were further de-cisive arguments in favor for the hospital management. “In any case, the TI introduction in our house was due anyway. Of course, our early/timely involvement has brought us significant cost advantages. However, it was just as important to us to gain experience with the technology ear-ly on in order to make our house fit for the further expansion stages," says Alexander Hammer, deputy CEO and general manager of St. Marien Hospital.

Only secure professional networking, as guaranteed by the TI, can form the basis for the rapid expansion of apps, even for helpful patients.

The TI Ready Workshop is the prelude to every TI implementation project in hospitals. This in-volves a check-up of the IT network and all essential framework parameters. The workshop culminates with a clear roadmap for the further course of the project. The analysis of St. Mari-en Hospital showed that all indicators were green in the key areas. The project continued with-out any hitches, with the same highly focused approach. During the development of the tech-nical components and connection, great attention was paid to maintaining the familiar user in-terface in CGM CLINICAL; the training efforts required were correspondingly low.

"I am surprised and at the same time pleased that the internal organizational effort for the TI in-troduction has remained very limited. Overall, the project progressed professionally and smoothly. And then It is clear that the CGM project team has extensive expertise and experience in TI implementation," says Kai Schink, IT Director at St. Marien Hospital.

“We offer our customers the entire TI implementation from a single source, from hardware in-stallation to the connection of the hospital information system, including customized backup and recovery concepts. This is a decisive success factor," says Thomas Simon, Area Vice President Clinical DE.
