Marina Salud Hospital: Creating a Digital Hospital
Marina Salud Hospital cuts paperwork and enhances medical decision-making with Intel® Atom™ processor-based tablets.
Marina Salud Hospital, in the city of Dénia, is part of the public hospital network of the Valencian government in Eastern Spain. Owned by the Marina Salud private healthcare company, it employs around 1,200 healthcare professionals. The hospital serves a permanent population of around 156,000 people, but in the summer this population doubles to around 300,000.
The building received the A Plus Architecture award in 2010. The rooms all have natural light and the passageways act as exhibition areas. The walls of the pediatric ward show murals that promote healthy lifestyles.
The hospital wanted to investigate how mobile computing devices like tablets could benefit two types of employees. First, the management team needed to reduce the amount of paperwork employees needed to carry. Executives wanted to be able to store and access documents electronically and record meeting notes and actions in real time to help boost productivity and transparency. Meanwhile, physicians wanted to be able to access the information it takes to treat patients, wherever and whenever they need to, in a straightforward, easy-to-use format.
The hospital evaluated Dell Latitude* 10 tablet devices powered by Intel® Atom™ processors. Their integration with the management team’s core applications was excellent. Managers rely on Microsoft Office* tools, so the tablets’ Microsoft Windows* 8 operating system was the ideal match.
