    Renovating the Centre Hospitalier Alpes Lèman with Advantech’s POC-S197F Point-of-Care Terminal

    Green Belt

      Market: Healthcare

      Location: France

      Technology Partner: Centre Hospitalier Alpes Lèman

      Project Introduction

      The Hospital Alpes Léman in Contamine sur Arve, France, was originally built in 1841 and serves

      the Geneva area as a premier public hospital offering a complete range of medical and surgical

      specialties. The hospital has a 640-bed capacity, and its wide range of care options across

      various fields of competence is available to all. The hospital was completely rebuilt in 2012,

      affording planners the opportunity to computerize the facility in surgery, endoscopy, recovery,

      anesthesia, and other areas. Hospital staff identified the need to build systems that allowed

      full patient management, room scheduling, and regulatory checklists in surgery; intervention

      and recovery processes in anesthesiology; and patient plan care and prescription continuity in

      pharmaceutical dispensaries.

      Solution

      Advantech’s POC-S197F Slim Point-of-

      Care terminals were selected to handle the

      hospital’s needs. The all-in-one terminal is

      connected to the hospital’s information

      systems, and allows real-time access and

      recording of patient data. It was installed in

      the hospital using convenient VESA standard

      swing-arm mounts, making for an ergonomic

      workstation with mouse and keyboard suspended

      above worktables maximizing the

      work area. The POC-S197F’s 19-inch display

      gives medical personnel, such as anesthesiologists

      in surgical units, a broad visual interface.

      Having instant access to data optimizes

      workflow, reduces risks from errors, and

      ensures premium access to information is

      always available.
