University of Kansas Hospital Expects 30% Inpatient Volume Increase

Education August 7, 2018

The University of Kansas Hospital built its Cambridge Tower A in order to handle the expected 30 percent increase of overall inpatient volume by 2020. This is the hospital’s largest expansion, coming in at $360 million.

The growing volume and demand for inpatient care drove the hospital to seek out partners for an updated technology solution. Kansas City-based AVI Systems worked with the hospital system to fully service many of the demands of the expansion.

BATTLING FRACTURED AV SYSTEMS

Prior to partnering with AVI Systems, the University of Kansas Hospital staff constantly battled with fractured and inconsistent audiovisual systems that often hindered them from doing their jobs.

The hospital’s process for integrating new technology usually involved multiple different vendors, which brought various kinds of devices and concepts. In turn, it left many departments working with totally different solutions than others.

As frustration with this process mounted, staff at the hospital approached AVI Systems about outfitting a boardroom because of the way AVI handles projects from start to finish.

A PROVEN PROCESS

AVI Systems took a comprehensive approach to partnership with the hospital, its teams, and outside contractors. AVI also worked with physicians in the radiology department to develop a technical standard for Medical Image Reading Rooms.

By meeting with doctors and other medical staff throughout the project to understand their needs and goals for the space, AVI Systems was able to design and integrate a solution that would meet their specific criteria. That same practice was implemented throughout the entire project. AVI Systems worked with the vendors and manufacturers to ensure whatever solutions went into the space, they would work for the end users without a doubt.

Outside of digital signage and the medical image reading rooms, the project included:

  • Team meeting spaces
  • Impromptu meetings spaces
  • Video wall to feature donors
  • Command center
  • Post-integration support
