Hospitals in the City of Vienna rely on IHSE KVM system

Wiener Krankenanstaltenverbund (KAV), the Vienna Hospital Association, operates eleven hospitals, including the General Hospital-Medical University Campus; eleven care homes for the elderly; four residential nursing homes with social-medical care and eleven training facilities for general healthcare and nursing care in the City of Vienna.

The KAV is Austria’s largest provider of healthcare education with over 2,100 medical training positions annually for nursing and medical-technical services. The Association employs nearly 32,000 people, who provide a range of medical services for over 400,000 inpatients and 3.5 million outpatients annually.

A central IT management suite in an off-site location remotely manages all the independent IT operations for all the hospitals and sites within the organization. A 32-port Draco tera KVM matrix switch enables the IT staff within the control room to choose which of the available computer or CCTV video sources they wish to show on the 3 x 2 videowall and on the displays within the personal workstations. Pre-defined and stored display configurations allow rapid response situations to be addressed. In emergency situations operators can immediately switch to the pre-defined display configuration and instantly display the pertinent information on all screens.

The flexibility achieved through the use of the Draco tera KVM matrix switch enable a small dedicated team of experts to manage the whole of the computer services more efficiently and with a greater level of control. Relevant data can easily be selected for the large videowall and separate personal workstations; instantly and whenever required, allowing the team to work independently or together depending upon the operational status of the network at the time. And allow them to rapidly attend to emergency situations whenever they occur.
