Patient bed monitoring at hospital Wattwil

Hospital Wattwil in Switzerland opened the doors to its new inpatient wing in March 2018. 88 patient beds have been fitted with LEGIC technology.

Security and comfort for the patient

The innovative service offers comfort, security and efficiency for the patient and hospital operator. A monitor is installed at every patient bed which allows patients to identify themselves by using an RFID smartcard or bracelet. Patients can log into their bed computer at any time, day or night.

A variety of information in one place

In addition to patient monitoring, information such as menus, services and other special hospital information can be accessed via the hospital’s extranet. The resulting costs can be easily and instantly debited from the card’s account.

Cabinets by the patient’s bed and the lighting and curtain controls can also be accessed using a smartcard. All of this makes the processes at the hospital much easier. Patients learn how to use the system intuitively and welcome this helpful and smart technology.

"With the technology from LEGIC we have every opportunity to integrate more applications at the hospital in future" - André Juszko, Head of Technology / Medical Technology, Hospital Wattwil

Expanding the system

System expansion with personalized treatment information and appointments or transfer to smartphones and tablets is already being planned: another step towards a fully digital hospital. Wattwil has already taken the first step with digital patient files. The processes are being increasingly automated to reduce paper processes and guarantee efficient and error-free process management.

Lead with Ondamedia

The system was integrated and the project was completed by the company Ondamedia, a company experienced in this field.
