Director of Cardiovascular Medicine, CMUH

Established in 1980, China Medical University Hospital (CMUH) on average attends to more than 190,000 outpatients, 15,000 emergency patients and 7,300 hospitalized patients with 4,800 patients receiving surgeries every month. With a focus on maximizing efficiency and effectiveness of operations in its cardiac catheter lab, CMUH needed an advanced and stable interventional image management and display solution. Barco’s Nexxis IVR solution met their quality requirements and was installed at the end of June 2020.

Barco’s Nexxis solution, with a large display system, enabled a neater and more simplified operation environment for the care team. The simplified interventional workflow, in turn, improving the efficiency of the operating suite. The MDSC-8358 replaced 6 individual displays with 1 in the exam room, while the MDSC-8231 replaced 4 individual displays with 1 in the control room of the Cath lab.

Seamless Collaboration, Unmatched Image Quality

Prior to integrating Barco solutions, CMUH’s Cath Lab was using multiple displays in the exam room and control room. As the system aged, the care team struggled with operational details, owing to restricted screen resolution and size, color & brightness calibration issues, image inconsistency across different screens, and degrading image quality. Cardiologists were unable to draw in-depth perception and the multiple displays led to a cluttered workplace. Display maintenance also took an extensive amount of space and time.

Choosing Barco as their trusted solution partner, the Cath lab was able to derive accurate color images with ultra-low latency, and reduced noise, making real-time critical imaging more specific. Surgical displays MDSC-8358 and MDSC-8231 introduced intuitive user interfaces with dynamic and flexible layouts. Seamless views from multiple sources in the exam room enabled medical practitioners to drive more effective operational outcomes.

Furthermore, the Barco Nexxis IVR solution reduces clutter with a single integrated display screen, simplified configuration, and remote troubleshooting. The solution is powered by flexible and scalable technical infrastructure that is future-proof and can be updated by using network technology and open standards.

Making Way for Better Health Outcomes

With Barco’s quality imaging solutions by their side, CMUH was able to reach its operational objective with ease while enhancing performance in the cardiovascular suite. Seamless alignment of color and clarity is not a challenge anymore for the hospital. This unique technology platform has enabled CMUH to amplify its medical services and empower their team with premium visual solutions.
