The NUCLeUS™ offering from Sony provided the best fit for our needs. We're also excited to be working with a company like Sony, whose proven focus on innovation is a great fit with our own future plans.
- Karolinska University Hospital
Sweden’s second largest hospital system, Karolinska University Hospital has 1,340 beds and treats 1.58 million patients per year across two sites in Huddinge and Solna.
To improve the efficiency of its surgical imaging workflow across the extensive site, Karolinska University Hospital chose our NUCLeUSTM video-over-IP platform, which it judged was the best fit for its needs. The NUCLeUSTM system is being installed in 31 operating rooms in a newly constructed surgical center on the hospital campus in Huddinge, Stockholm. We are also supplying a range of other equipment to Karolinska University in collaboration with local partner and integration specialist Vingmed.
Developed in consultation with leading surgeons, NUCLeUSTM guides clinical staff through the planning, recording and sharing of video images and other patient-related data in the operating room, across the hospital campus, and beyond. The system’s highly scalable, open architecture and vendor-neutral approach also allows the integration of new applications to enhance the power and flexibility of NUCLeUSTM in the future.
The NUCLeUSTM system’s intuitive touchscreen allows surgical staff to capture live video, still images, and other digital content from any source and route images to screens in the operating room or elsewhere on the hospital campus for various purposes, e.g. remote advisory through telestration. Digital content from endoscopes, surgical microscopes, room cameras and other sources within the OR can also be recorded simultaneously for post-operative review and training purposes. Recorded content can also be associated with other patient records and stored centrally for secure access from anywhere over hospital-wide IP networks.
