Ghent University Hospital always puts people first in everything it does, not just in its healthcare provision. The results of an intense collaboration between the hospital’s ICT and Communications departments are testament to this. Patients and visitors can now find information about healthcare services, visiting hours and other practical details much more easily on a new website. And employees can contact each other and find the information they need faster thanks to an updated, user-friendly intranet. Both are based on Microsoft SharePoint and have been implemented by IT partner Realdolmen, selected because of its experience in the healthcare sector..
“The aim of this project was to simplify our channels of communication and speed up access to information to improve the quality of healthcare. We can do this now because we’re spending less time looking things up.”
Eline Verdyck, Portal Project Manager from Ghent University Hospital ICT Department.
