Irvine, California (July 4, 2019) -- Advantech is thrilled to announce it has been selected as the winner of the Best Hospital Technology Implementation award in the 2019 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program for their work at The Erasmus University Hospital in Rotterdam.

Regarding the Hospital Technology Implementation: A completely new building containing 26 new operating rooms were renovated alongside facilities throughout the larger complex. The hospital decided to modernize their workflow and reduce the amount of paper, posters and other analog systems that were previously in use. The goal was to have a comprehensive, digital, smart and integrated way of working for the staff in the new operating rooms. For this to be realized, FHD video from operating tools would not only have to be streamed with ultra-low latency and lossless image quality to any surgical display but should also be capable of switching those video sources seamlessly. These copious requirements were successfully solved by a combination of Advantech’s AVAS NDcoders, All-in-one medically certified POC Computers, network switches and PAX Surgical Display Monitors.
