5 public hospitals that embrace technology for better patient care

In the realm of modern healthcare, technology has become an indispensable ally, transforming the way medical professionals diagnose, treat, and care for patients. One standout innovation in this domain is Medicai, a medical imaging platform that allows doctors to view, share, store and collaborate on imaging data, and that has caught the attention of public hospitals aiming to streamline their clinical workflows and elevate patient care. In this blog post, we explore five public hospitals that have embraced the Medicai platform and are deriving benefits for both medical practitioners and patients alike.

1. Filantropia Clinical Hospital

Filantropia Clinical Hospital is the oldest obstetrics and gynecology clinic in Romania, founded in 1813.

Offering complex medical services - from maternal and fetal medicine and human genetics to gynecological oncology - and high professional competence, the Filantropia Hospital belongs to the elite units of Romanian obstetrics and gynecology

Dr. Dragoș Median, Medical Oncologist, and his colleagues, are using Medicai to organize and coordinate in multidisciplinary tumor boards:

"We started from the need to create a patient record that is easily accessible, allows information to be added as it accumulates, and makes it easy for any user to search (the record and within it). In addition, as we work with collaborators from other healthcare institutions, it is important for us to be able to securely share the information needed to make decisions. Medicai largely solves our needs." - Dragoș Median, Medical Oncologist, Filantropia Hospital

2.  "Sfântul Pantelimon" Clinical Emergency Hospital

"Sfântul Pantelimon" Clinical Emergency Hospital in Bucharest is one of the most important emergency medical units in Bucharest and offers high quality medical services in specialties such as emergency medicine, orthopedics, traumatology, surgery, neurology and others. The hospital has modern medical equipment and a team of doctors and medical staff qualified and dedicated to provide the best care to its patients.

The benefits of adopting the Medicai platform for doctors at St. Pantelimon Emergency Hospital:

  • Accessing hospital investigations from wherever they are, without having to go down to the imaging lab or ask imaging colleagues for studies - this gives autonomy to clinicians in the hospital and ensures efficient flow
  • The ability to receive a complete file with the patient's entire medical history
  • Storage space for imaging done by patients in other hospitals/clinics for better follow-up
  • Access from anywhere via the Medicai mobile app

3.  Sfânta Maria Clinical Hospital

The mission of Sfânta Maria Clinical Hospital is to measurably improve the health of its patients by providing high-quality specialized services, practicing evidence-based medicine, attracting and motivating the best specialists, modern equipment and continuously developing.

Our solution enabled more than 50 doctors from Saint Mary Public Hospital to reduce the time it took for a patient to be diagnosed by 19%.


“Since we started using Medicai in the hospital, we have finally felt that we are aligned to the medical standards in France and Germany, respectively, where I worked as a surgeon. Individually, it gives me flexibility in the program, the possibility to work from anywhere and anytime, having easy access to all the imaging investigations in the institution.” - Assoc. Prof. Dr. Dragoș Predescu, General Surgeon Sfânta Maria Clinical Hospital

4. The National Institute of Pneumophthiology "Marius Nasta"

The "Marius Nasta" National Institute of Pneumophthisiology is a medical unit with tradition; the hospital was the place where great Romanian names in the medical field, such as Ștefan Irimescu, founder of the Romanian school of pneumophthisiology, have professed.

“We used to meet regularly, every 2-3 weeks, together with other colleagues that deal with cases of diffuse interstitial pneumonia, in the amphitheater. At these meetings, we would present the patient cases and discuss them. Due to the pandemic, we had to cancel these meetings. Medicai offered us the alternative to hold these meetings online. Within the platform, we also have access to medical imaging investigations. Recently, Medicai added the option to sign documents online. So, for each case, a joint decision is taken in the multidisciplinary commission. This decision is included in a diagnosis document that is signed electronically by all participants." - Assoc. Prof. Dr. Irina Strâmbu — Primary Care Pulmonologist, Expert Pulmonologist with IPF/ILDs

5. Clinical Emergency Hospital "Prof. Dr. Nicolae Oblu"
