St Leo’s Hospital – Digital Asset Management

Introduction

Digital asset management (DAM) is a system used to store, organize, and distribute digital assets such as images, videos, and documents. In this case study, we will discuss the deployment of a DAM system for St Leo’s Hospital.

St Leo's Hospital Enugu

Background

St Leo’s Hospital is a large, multi-disciplinary hospital that provides a wide range of medical services. The hospital has been in operation for over 21 years and has a diverse range of departments, including paediatrics, internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology. As the hospital has grown, so has the number of digital assets that the hospital has accumulated. These assets include medical images and videos, patient records, and research papers.

Problem

The hospital had been using a manual process to store and organize its digital assets. This process was time-consuming and prone to errors. Additionally, the hospital was finding it challenging to locate specific assets quickly and easily. As a result, the hospital was spending a significant amount of time searching for the right assets to use in its medical treatments and research efforts.

Solution

To address these issues, St Leo’s Hospital decided to implement a digital asset management (DAM) system. The system would allow the hospital to store, organize, and distribute its digital assets in a more efficient and effective manner. After researching various DAM systems and solution providers, the hospital decided to use the DAM system provided by Wonestack Limited.

Implementation

The implementation of the digital asset management (DAM) system was a multi-step process that involved the following steps:

  1. Data migration: The first step was to migrate all existing digital assets from the manual storage system to the new DAM system. This process involved uploading all the assets to the new system and ensuring that they were properly organized and tagged for easy searching.
  2. User training: The second step was to train all employees on how to use the new system. This included training on how to upload and organize assets, as well as how to search for assets using keywords and tags.
  3. Integration with other systems: The third step was to integrate the DAM system with other systems used by the hospital. This included integration with the hospital’s electronic medical record system and research database to ensure that the right assets were being used in the right places.

Results

The implementation of the digital asset management (DAM) system resulted in significant improvements for St Leo’s Hospital. The hospital was now able to locate digital assets quickly and easily, which greatly reduced the time spent searching for the right assets. Additionally, the hospital was able to use the assets more effectively in their medical treatments and research efforts. Overall, the implementation of the DAM system led to a more efficient and effective use of digital assets for St Leo’s Hospital.

Conclusion

Digital asset management systems can be a valuable tool for hospitals that have a large number of digital assets to store, organize, and distribute. In this case study, we discussed the implementation of a DAM system for St Leo’s Hospital, ranked No 2 in Enugu, Nigeria. The implementation led to significant improvements in the way the hospital was able to use its digital assets, resulting in a more efficient and effective use of these assets in medical treatments and research efforts.
