Learn how to increase your workflow efficiency with ZEISS FORUM

streamline your workflow

Streamline your workflow

Save time, space, material and costs

ZEISS FORUM enables a fully electronic workflow which e.g. allows you to send patient demographics automatically to the instrument. Paper handling and manual patient registration on instruments become a thing of the past. A completely paperless workflow environment lets you save on storage space, filing cabinets as well as costs for printouts, ink and printers.

Assuming a volume of 30 patients per day, our analysis projected a saving of about 5 weeks of work time per year and almost 10,000 euros in printing costs.

Simplify your environment

Simplify your environment

ZEISS FORUM integrates conveniently into your existing IT infrastructure using established standards as well as customized tools. By centrally storing and managing all examination data it ensures patient record consistency across the network, including EMR, HIS, DICOM and non-DICOM instruments, from ZEISS as well as other manufacturers. In addition, the multi-site solution of ZEISS FORUM ensures that consistent patient data is available and shared across multiple sites.

We fully integrated ZEISS FORUM in our hospital IT landscape. Connections with our EMR system (Orbis) and the hospital-wide PACS are both functioning smoothly.
