Children hospitals saving money by using open source

Italian children hospitals are saving money by using the ‘Smart Inclusion project’ using open source technology and offering access to for instance medical data and e-learning applications. According to a statement from the Ministry for Public Administration and Innovation, hospitals can save about 1000 Euro per PC and about 500 per thin client.

The project uses the Linux open source operating system.

Italy’s minister for Innovation, Renato Brunetta, inaugurated the Smart Inclusion project early last month at one of the units of the Meyer Hospital in the city of Florence. The system is also used by the Policlinico Sant’Orsola in Bologna, the Ospedale Bambino Gesù in Rome, and the Azienda Ospedaliera in Padua.

Eight more Italian hospitals will move to the open source platform before the end of this year, including the Ospedale Pediatrico Istituto G. Gaslini in Genoa, and the Ospedale Infantile Regina Margherita in Turin.

The system is developed with the support of the Ministry for Public Administration and Innovation and the Tuscany Region.

The system us intended to make it easy for children in the hospitals to stay connected to school and home. “It also enables health-care professionals to use advanced tools to support treatment of their young patients”, explains Telecom Italia, one of the companies involved, in a statement.

The project uses for instance touchscreen video terminals, offering child patients a way to interact with classmates and attend lessons, when linked to a similar workstation or digital whiteboards installed at their school. The computers also offer access to TV, games and videoconferencing applications. source.
