The Luzerner Kantonsspital (LUKS) is made up of one central hospital, Zentrumsspital Luzern; two basic care hospitals, Grundversorgungsspitäler Sursee and Wolhusen; and an advanced care institute, Luzerner Höhenklinik Montana. As the largest non-university Swiss hospital, the LUKS clinics and institutes offer the highest quality medical services and care for a local population of 500,000. With 900 beds, LUKS provided approximately 36,000 patients stationary treatment and 148,500 ambulatory treatments in 2010. As it sees a high number of patients each year, LUKS is required to maintain a myriad of data and reports that are of utmost importance to aftercare physicians.
LUKS uses an Oracle-based communication platform to provide general practitioners and specialists digital access to electronic patient files including x-rays, test results, and reports. This simplifies communication between all relevant parties and significantly improves the continuity of patient treatment.
Oracle Partner, i-engineers AG, initiated the health engine, established the universal patient file as the core element for future-oriented health care, and was responsible for the implementation at Luzerner Kantonsspital.
The software engineers from Zühlke Engineering AG defined the architecture and the HIN security concept, and implemented them based on Oracle Identity Management.
