In order to manage things as efficiently as possible, AZ Jan Portaels went out looking for solutions to look after disorientated patients in the geriatric ward, as well as ways to guarantee quality in the storage of medicines, reagents and patient samples. PHI DATA proved to be the perfect partner.
Inkendaal - PHI DATA stray prevention system stops patients from wandering around Inkendaal Rehabilitation Hospital
Before PHI DATA was contacted, Inkendaal had been operating with a permanently closed door for more than ten years. Patients and visitors wanting to enter or leave, had to key in a code to open the door. But this was far from ideal: patients, staff and visitors would forget the code, or patients with restricted freedom of movement would slip through with visitors. That is why Inkendaal requested PHI DATA to look for a way to create a selectively closed door, whereby the staff would only need to intervene when patients with a tendency to wander off, want to leave.
