Deployment country


Based in Freiburg, Germany, University Medical Center (UMC) Freiburg (Universitätsklinikum Freiburg) is one of the largest hospitals in Europe, with over 10,000 employees. Its medical professionals and administrators rely on an IT environment consisting of more than 80 clinical, operational and patient care applications. This application environment demands constant change, with ongoing application modifications and deployments.

Business need
The integration architecture team at University Medical Center (UMC) Freiburg (Universitätsklinikum Freiburg) needed to connect the hospital's business and patient care applications with its clinical and patient data storage systems to provide a full view of patient care in one location, resulting in better overall care.

The hospital implemented IBM Integration Bus plus Healthcare Connectivity Pack and IBM MQ software to provide integration, messaging and data transformation.

The integration architecture team saves critical time when implementing new information-system interfaces, allowing the hospital to seamlessly adopt new systems of record and applications.
