“ Today, patient imaging data can be shared with another hospital department for analysis in just 30 minutes – an improvement of over 95 percent. Because the IBM solution is entirely electronic, we have also reduced the risks associated with losing physical copies of test results. ”

Soon Chun Hyang University Hospital
Ilgeun Infra Co., Ltd
Founded in 1972, Soon Chun Hyang University Hospital (SCHUH) has grown to become one of the largest healthcare institutions in South Korea. The hospital operates 2,890 beds at four different cities across the country—Seoul, Gumi, Cheonan and Bucheon.
SCHUH wanted to continue to deliver an excellent care experience for growing numbers of patients by making X-ray and MRI scans available to physicians more quickly.
The hospital implemented an integrated medical records project to break down siloes of data at four sites. Today, all medical records, MRI scans and payment systems are hosted at a single datacenter.
Enables the hospital to prepare scan data for physicians 95 percent faster. Supports availability levels of over 99 percent. Increased efficiency could lower annual operating costs by 40 percent.
