Rennes is the third hospital to have chosen MetaVision through a framework agreement with UniHA, a leading French public sector purchasing group. Centre Hospitalier Libourne (25 adult ICU beds already live) and CHU de Poitiers (88 beds currently in implementation) are the other two hospitals involved in the agreement: they plan to implement MetaVision in a total of some one hundred and twenty ICU beds. This means that some two hundred and fifty critical care beds across the three institutions will be using MetaVision.
iMDsoft's long and productive partnerships with other leading French hospitals was a key factor in the hospitals’ decision, as was the fact that, unlike other vendors, iMDsoft offers specialized functionality for neonatal and pediatric units. MetaVision's adaptability and ease-of-use was another important plus.
MetaVision fully supports the unique workflows of the data-rich environment at Rennes. The system generates complete electronic medical records, arming healthcare professionals with timely and accurate information. It seamlessly integrates data from bedside devices, hemodynamic monitors, and ECMO. Advanced decision-support tools provide notifications at the point of care, increasing adherence to protocols for critical events such as identification for transport and therapeutic cooling.
Thanks to our collaboration with iMDsoft, our "Paper Zero" goal is progressing rapidly”, said Christine Pichon, Director of Information Systems at the University Hospital Center. “After being customized to reflect our environment and practices, MetaVision has been deployed in pediatric and neonatal resuscitation units for the first time in France. The tool’s benefits and ergonomics mean our teams are quickly adapting to it. We look forward to future implementations.”
“The cooperation between iMDsoft, Rennes, and the other UniHA hospitals is win-win for everyone concerned: hospital, clinicians, and patients. We are delighted at the success of this first stage in the planned rollout," said Shahar Sery, Executive Vice President of iMDsoft. “iMDsoft is confident that we will continue to work together to bring innovative solutions that improve patient care and safety throughout Brittany and beyond.”
