The Emergency Department of UZ Leuven receives 55,000 patients per year, most of them in critical conditions. This requires clinicians to make quick diagnosis for the right treatment, in which every piece of patient information counts. What they need is far more than a heart rate or blood pressure, but some of the most advanced monitoring parameters. Let's find out what modern technology has brought for ER clinicians at UZ Leuven.
BeneView's powerful IT solution integrates patient data into a seamless data flow. Already in the ambulance, paramedics connect the patient to the Mindray monitoring system via the T5 and T1 monitors, this ensures immediate connection to the central system at the hospital. From that moment on, all patient data will be collected under one name so that wherever the patient goes, clinicians always have all the information at hand.
Ease of Use
"One of the most impressive features is its screen view. There are large screens in several areas of the ER department. These can give a nice overview of all the patients. Once a patient is going into alarm you will see it immediately. It is very helpful for the nurses because they don’t have to stick in front of the central station. It’s really helping them to provide the necessary care for the patient in time."

Consultant of the Emergency Department
For this, Chief Nurse Peter Deboutte has the answer. "It is easy for all the nurses that the same T1 monitor can go in all the departments." said Nurse Deboutte.
The BeneView system provides UZ Leuven with improvements to patient safety and increased efficiency for both the doctors and the nursing staff, making them feel more confident in their daily work.
