Pressmeddelande   •   Mar 22, 2012 15:39 CET

Hilversum/Paris/Munich, March 22, 2012 – NEC will be showcasing its end-to-end range of innovative healthcare solutions at the Zorg & ICT show in the Jaarbeurs, Utrecht, from 27-29 March 2012. 

Now in its tenth year, the show brings around 8,000 visitors and over 180 exhibitors from Belgium, Germany, Netherlands and the US as a platform for IT solutions and services within the healthcare sector.

From its 66 square meter stand, NEC will highlight the company's latest developments in the area of Unified Communications, medical displays, projectors and storage, server and virtualisation solutions. NEC's subject matter experts will also be on hand to provide in-depth information regarding NEC's work on the further improvement of management and patient care in the healthcare sector and the broad spectrum of state-of-the-art solutions specifically aimed at enhancing efficiency and quality of care in the industry. These will all be presented under NEC's 'Innovation for Life' banner, which integrates all its solutions for CARE & CURE.

Part of the stand will be dedicated to the latest Unified Communications & Collaboration tools for the healthcare market. This includes NEC’s contact centre and central appointment solutions, the UNIVERGE Business ConneCT application, advanced nurse call messaging and alerting applications through Mobicall, a new generation of IP DECT terminals, as well as private GSM solutions and location detection through Ekahau.

“As well as all the diagnosis and treatment technology available, communication plays a vital role in the healthcare sector. Being able to locate and contact the right person or device at the right time is just as important as having the tools necessary to treat patients effectively," said Kees van Donk, director of hospitality and healthcare at NEC Unified Solutions.

"With our vast experience in the healthcare environment we have developed an entire portfolio of innovative solutions that help these institutions, whether these are hospitals, elderly homes, clinics or doctor’s practices, to do just that.”

NEC will also demonstrate display and projector solutions for more accurate and QA-compliant radiological diagnosis including mammography. NEC's portfolio spans greyscale diagnostic displays, high brightness colour diagnostic displays, new clinical review displays, a new large format Operating Room display and the latest DICOM simulation projectors. These will appear alongside standard office monitors for the administrative departments and large format displays for visitor way finding and hospital information systems.

These technologies allow doctors to receive all their important data quickly and accurately, with the images easily being made available to relevant internal medical departments via a PACS system or to off-site locations, as part of a teleradiology system.

Christopher Parker, product line manager professional displays at NEC Display Solutions, added, “With the growing need for displays in the healthcare sector, NEC is ideally placed to meet the needs of the market by offering a range of visual display solutions from standard office LCD monitors to medically certified diagnosis displays.”

"As a leading manufacturer of innovative medical display solutions, NEC is the right partner to deal with the challenges of hospital-wide digitalisation processes."

NEC's storage, server and virtualisation solutions will round the company's offering at the show. These are designed to ensure continuity and reliability in critical healthcare environments. On display will be the Virtual PC Center, a complete desktop virtualization solution from NEC that delivers everything from platform management software to servers and thin client terminals, and bringing stability to enterprise IT systems through technology such as automatic load balancing. Alongside this will be NEC FlexPower, the first business-in-a-box modular server built from the ground up for small and midsize organisations, which integrates storage, computing, and networking to simplify complex IT environments, making it perfect for a doctor's office or clinic.

“In medical environments, the right technology can be crucial to saving lives and different general and university hospitals all over EMEA rely already on NEC for precisely this reason," concluded Thierry Gaeremynck, area sales manager Benelux at NEC IT Platform Solutions.

"These solutions not only allow hospitals and other healthcare organisations to have easy access to the computing resources they need with guaranteed reliability, but can provide significant cost and energy savings as well."
