OLVG implemented Performance Flow to track&trace their mobile medical assets (like infusion pumps) within the hospital. This time and cost saving application is very well received and now more hospitals are moving to implement the solution.
Within OLVG all mobile medical devices are uniquely tagged and receivers are placed throughout the entire hospital. All devices can be exactly located, which is a major timesaver for medical staff since they don't have to search for assets. Saved time that can be spent on delivering more personal care to patients. Hospital management can monitor the performance of each individual asset and finetune the need for more or less assets. Maintenance can be streamlined so down time of valuable assets can be kept to a minimum. Currently the application is being expanded to not only track&trace mobile assets, but also patients. This can for instance streamline the patient flow in the emergency departments to increase healthcare or keep track of patients with Alzheimer's disease.
RADventure and Philips joined forces to create this state of art solution for hospitals.
The world is experiencing a heavy burden with the coronavirus disease pandemic (also called COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2). Almost all countries are preventing contamination and treating patients the best they can. Currently, the main focus is on treatment, but as the pandemic develops, the need for a structured COVID-screening program is growing massively. This is because quarantining the entire population for several months or perhaps several years is not feasible: there needs to be a structured approach for un-quarantining (parts of) the population. We foresee that large population screening programs will be a piece of this complex strategic puzzle.
At this moment we are noticing an upcoming demand for national data management systems to support these large population based screening programs. Both the screening to determine whether a person is infected (for example performing a blood test, oral swab test or a CT-scan) and the screening wether a person already had the disease (using antibody tests) will be needed. With more than 25 years of experience in large scale screening programs in countries all over the world, RADventure supports you to conduct these kind of programs with our Unified Screening Platform (USP).
USP is a flexible data management software environment that provides what is needed to implement large scale screening programs. With USP, the population can be organized in target groups based on different parameters (such as the person's age, gender, living area, previous studies results, etc). Based on these parameters each individual client is invited for a specific workflow and tracked from the first contact until the end of the defined screening workflow. The planning for the screening program can be set for the whole population or incrementally, prioritizing invitations based on specific criteria. Doing so it is possible to invite clients for a specific workflow, and/or area, or invite a selected group to a specific Screening Unit or specific workflow. Regarding planning and monitoring, USP has a Central Unit that can configure, plan and monitor different Screening Units (fixed and/or mobile). Due to the modular architecture, USP is flexible and ready to be integrated in other health care environments (like Hospital Information Systems and Laboratory Information Systems).
We are happy to advise and support you on the (data) management part of COVID-19 screening programs.
in September 2019, after several months of development, preparation and testing, the Cervical Cancer Screening program (CIS-FP) went live Curaçao This Screening program is executed bij Fundashon Prevenshon. The workflow is based on cytology and/or HPV, depending on age. The system is designed with a planning module to create invitations with or without an appointment. Clients are invited for screening and their samples are sent to a laboratory, while the communication between the laboratory and CIS-FP is carried out by HL7 messages. The system calculates the Bethesda scores based on the KOPAC classifications and, depending on the results, schedule a sequel appointment. RADventure is very pleased to contribute to the Cervical Cancer screening program. Currently there are over 70.000 clients registered in the system. More information: Fundashon Prevenshon
This month, after a long period of preparations, the ROBINSCA-MR study started. In this study, an MRI scan of the heart is performed on a subset of the ROBINSCA participants who have undergone a CT scan (Intervention Group B). In collaboration with the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG), it is being investigated whether early indications of an imminent heart attack or sudden cardiac death can be found with this MRI scan.
Participants in the ROBINSCA study who have undergone a CT scan of the heart (Intervention Group B) and who were found to have a calcium score of 300 or higher will be mailed an invitation for ROBINSCA-MR. In the first instance, a small part of the potential participants will receive an invitation letter with information. This number will gradually be expanded. All ROBINSCA participants in intervention group B and a calcium score of 300 or higher will eventually receive an invitation letter.
The researchers from the Erasmus MC and the UMCG are very pleased that ROBINSCA-MR has started and hope to gather valuable information about the development of serious cardiovascular diseases, such as a heart attack, with the help of all the participants. RADventure is proud to deliver the needed workflow software and to provide the secure hosting environment for this study.

In 2017, RADventure implemented this quality certification according to the new norm DIN EN ISO 9001:2015. After a successful recertification audit end 2017, TÜV Rheinland issued the new certificate, which is valid until February 2021. The high quality standard and integrated IT-systems for customer-related processes are the main pillars for this success.
The new ISO 9001 considers not only our valuable customers, but also other “interested parties”. Those have been analyzed and assessed by RADventure. Topics such as risk management, change management and knowledge management also play a vital role. The new norm maintains the process-oriented approach and requires “risk-based thinking”. RADventure considered these topics and has included respective measures into its processes. By being certified pursuant to the ISO9001:2015, RADventure will assure quality in accordance with valid international standards which is a major step for us, our customers and the company’s future.

For several years RADventure provides the Management Information System (called BCS) for the breast cancer screening implementation on the Canary Islands. We are very pleased to announce that the Canary Islands Government awarded the continuation of the support for this system. We look forward to continue our support for the breast cancer screening in the Canary Islands.
In January 2017 Trans.IT launched the Central Data warehouse for Gastroenterologist departments for multiple hospitals. Within each hospital all exams are recorded in a reporting database. Once per day a specific dataset is (anonymously) send from this reporting system to the Trans.IT central data warehouse. Each Gastroenterologist is able to use this central Data warehouse using a business intelligence tool to manage the department and analyze the data.
