Even though the healthcare system in Switzerland is actually already so good evolved and so many diseases can be cured, nevertheless still so many errors happen… especially due to errors in communication and collaboration – and this could lead (in the worst case) to the death of patients. Komed Health aims to solve these problems and offers a digital solution that provides a simple and secure messaging service for the medical staff as well as an integration into the hospital information system and a patient-centered communication even across shift changes.
Michele Marazza, Head IT Processes of Ente Ospedialero Cantonale says: “The Covid-19 crisis has clearly shown that an easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use but nevertheless secure digital communication and collaboration platform is desperately needed in healthcare facilities. During those difficult times, we tested the Komed Health platform and were impressed by the product as well as by the flexibility and responsiveness of the team of Komed Health. Our employees are also much more relaxed now as they can easily communicate and exchange real-time information without being scared that the data is somewhere in the US.“
