Imtech: first success for Smart Healthcare, 40 million euro order from IJsselland hospital
Gouda - Royal Imtech N.V. (IM-AE, technical services provider in and outside Europe) announces its first success in the Netherlands for 'Smart Healthcare': an integrated technological approach in the care market. 'Smart Healthcare' involves providing a hospital with a customised comprehensive plan for an intelligent, green, cost-effective approach that integrates the hospital's total energy and sustainability requirements, technical infrastructure, technical maintenance requirements, medical equipment and instrumentation, as well as ICT solutions. The IJsselland Hospital in Capelle a/d IJssel is the first hospital in the Netherlands to make the change to this total approach as based on this 'Smart Healthcare' formula. For Imtech, this means a 40 million euro order.
René van der Bruggen, CEO Imtech: 'Technology is becoming more and more important in care & cure. A technological total approach can reduce a hospital's operating costs, improve its operations, and upgrade its technical maintenance. This applies to both the hospital property and all the medical equipment. Technology also helps to increase the energy efficiency of health care buildings and to make health care even more sustainable. Imtech is an important player in the care market. With our new 'Smart Healthcare' formula we anticipate well in the need for extensive technical integration. This first order opens the way to a pro-active market approach.'
Imtech's 'Smart Healthcare' covers:
- the total energy requirement: the energy supply, implementation of energy-saving technical measures, and management of all energy assets
- the complete technical infrastructure: all the technical solutions in a hospital including additional updating or renovation and long-term technical maintenance as based on a performance contract and a life-cycle approach
- all medical equipment and instrumentation: the technological aspects as well as technical maintenance and contract management
- ICT: all the software, including ERP solutions and datacentre technology
This approach results in optimal financing flows, lower energy costs, higher efficiency, optimal sustainability, quality assurance, and allowing hospital management to devote themselves fully to their core business: the provision of health care.
