Improve medical services with
Intel® architecture-based tablets
Renji Hospital Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine enables enhanced mobile patient care with Intel® Atom™ processor-based business tablets, improving work efficiency and quality of healthcare services
Founded in 1844, Renji Hospital Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine
needed to provide a more convenient work environment to medical staffs and better
services for patients. To achieve this vision, Renji Hospital set up the Renji Medical
Cloud Computing Platform*, which combines advanced mobile technology with
existing medical resources. The platform enables mobile medical treatment through
better medical resources, services, and management.
CHALLENGES
•Allow easy ward rounds. Ease the burden of ward rounds for doctors by allowing
them to check complete medical records, medical histories, vital signs, and other
patient information without the need to carry paper-based clinical information.
“Intel® architecture-based
tablets have excellent
operating performance and
industry-proven stability
and reliability that meet our
mobile medical needs. Now
our medical staff benefits
from more stable and reliable
equipment with faster
processing to facilitate patient
diagnosis and medical services,
while improving our work
efficiency and quality
of services.”

•Improve work efficiency. Enhance nursing staff efficiency and productivity by
significantly reducing and often eliminating the time wasted on digitizing patient
records, which frequently causes information delay and errors.
•Expand the quality of patient services. Improve diet services for patients by
reducing pressure on kitchen workers, improving the diet management process and
reducing the chance of errors.
SOLUTION
•Utilize tablets based on Intel® Atom™ processor. Extend digital medical information
stored in traditional computers to let medical staff use mobile devices to collect and
manage patient information in real time and provide services more efficiently through
mobile diet ordering and optimized healthcare workflow.
TECHNOLOGY RESULTS
•Customized mobile platform. Mobilized the hospital information system by
adjusting system interfaces to meet different roles and operating habits
of employees.
•Efficient medical management. Combining medical applications with an optimized
system interface on mobile devices allowed doctors and nurses to improve and
accelerate patient diagnosis and treatment and retrieve information in real time.
•Digitized diet management. New digital healthcare system allowed the healthcare staff
to formulate dietary rules systematically based on patient records and doctor’s advice.
BUSINESS VALUE
•Significantly improved work efficiency. Reduced workload and pressure on doctors and
nurses. Doctor-patient consultations, which used to take 30 to 45 minutes, can now be
finished in 15 minutes. Kitchen workers can also provide enhanced diet services to patients.
•Improved patient satisfaction. Bringing information services to patients' bedsides
has cut the chance of manual errors. Since kitchen workers can provide enhanced
diet services to patients. satisfaction has climbed to 95 percent.
•Enhanced quality of medical services. With mobile medical techniques, the hospital
can implement quality surveillance on doctors’ advice and quantitative management
of healthcare, improving the overall healthcare level and quality of services.
A more systematic approach to
medical operations
Renji Hospital’s hospital information
system (HIS) includes all kinds of doctorpatient data, which healthcare staff can
easily check on computers. But care
takers had to go to specific locations to
manually input patient data.
“Since computer terminals are in certain
locations, it became increasingly difficult
Intel® Atom™ processor-based tablets optimize
healthcare workflow and improve work
efficiency and medical service delivery
for doctors and nurses to get timely
access to the HIS. They had to go back
and forth among wards and operating
rooms to check or record patient
information,” explained Meng Lili, director
of the Information Center at Renji Hospital.
This made a huge impact on the
efficiency and productivity of the medical
staff. When doctors went to the wards,
for example, they needed to use bulky
trolleys to transport information and
often carried either too much or too
little patient data. Meanwhile, nurses had
to manually record patients' vital signs
and then encode the information into
the HIS. This wasted time and effort and
increased errors in information records.
The hospital kitchen also needed a more
systematic approach. Daily diet has
significant influence on patients’ health. But
it was hard for kitchen workers to keep up
with patient's individual dietary needs.
“We have 40 kitchen workers going
back and forth among over 2,000 beds
every day," explained Lili. "They have to
strictly follow doctors’ advice to arrange
individualized diets for patients. This
became almost impossible."
With such pressing problems, Renji
Hospital needed to overhaul its HIS,
extending the HIS services to beds,
providing convenient data input and
access for doctors and nurses, and
enabling kitchen workers to more easily
manage patients' diets.
Digitizing medical operations
through mobile solutions The booming development of mobile
information technology boosted Renji
Hospital’s confidence in implementing
mobile solutions to respond to the
challenges its HIS presented.
The hospital equipped doctors, nurses,
and kitchen workers with tablets based
on Intel Atom processors. Using the
tablets, they can interact with the HIS
system whenever and wherever they
need to. The system interface also
adjusts to their roles, needs, and habits.
The new mobile medical solutions give
doctors better performance, reliability,
and compatibility. Doctors and nurses can
efficiently manage patients’ diagnosis and
treatment information through their mobile
devices. With the tablets' image processing
capabilities, the medical staff can now
check surveillance videos from operating
tables and other videos in real time, which
helps the hospital reduce possible disputes
between doctors and patients.
One doctor said, “The tablet runs very
quickly and operates very smoothly. This
is what we need. The tablet shows the
information we want most. We don't need
to check information manually, since it's
displayed in real time. Nurses also love
using the tablets because they can finish
their task in 15 minutes instead of 30 to 45
minutes. They can also easily input patients’
vital signs, which not only saves time, but
also reduces their workload. They are also
happy with the tablets’ long battery life,
which allows them to use the devices for a
full day on just one battery charge.”
Using the Intel® architecture-based
tablets also enabled Renji Hospital
to formulate custom diets based on
patients’ diseases, age, and other
information on the HIS.
“Through this mobile solution, patients’
satisfaction with our diet services
has reached 95 percent," said Lili.
"The efficiency and accuracy of diet
arrangements and patients’ compliance
have also been improved. Our all-around
LESSONS LEARNED
•Intel® architecture-based tablets are
an ideal platform for mobile medical
solutions, with excellent operating
performance plus industry-proven
stability and reliability. .
•Tablets based on Intel® Atom™
processors are compatible with a
wide range of operating systems
and applications to mobilize existing
