Using medical displays that are both reliable and consistent is a necessity for healthcare professionals as they deal with serious conditions requiring detailed images every day. Alberta Health Services (AHS), one of the largest fully integrated, publicly-funded healthcare systems in Canada, serves a population of more than 3.7 million people and is home to some of the fastest-growing communities in the country. It reaches both urban and rural areas surrounding Calgary. Due to its increasing traffic thanks to the region’s continued growth, AHS needed medical displays its doctors could count on.
AHS’ four acute care facilities, which required new medical displays to replace aging ones, combine education and training with health services. Its120 radiologists provide daily diagnostic examinations using a total of 75 workstations—each containing two side-by-side medical displays.
AHS employs a total of 117,000 workers, including 7400 physicians that provide services in more than 100 locations, involving 98 hospitals and a variety of community and continuing care sites.
