New Milestone: Schleswig-holstein University Hospital To Use Solutions From Telekom And Google Cloud

  • University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein to move to the cloud 
  • Simple use of data for better medical care 
  • Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Systems to manage the service
University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein has announced it will migrate its data and operations to the cloud, choosing the T-Systems Sovereign Cloud powered by Google Cloud. Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Systems is responsible for managing the services and maintaining sovereignty and security. “We are implementing an ambitious digitalization plan,” says Jens Scholz, CEO of UKSH. “The use of modern cloud technology is the basis for this and one of the milestones on the way to a digital future.”. 

Gottfried Ludewig, Managing Director of Telekom Healthcare Solutions, explains the pioneering cooperation: "We are supporting the UKSH with our offering of a sovereign cloud, powered by Google Cloud technology, on its path to digitalization with a highly secure and very powerful solution – this is particularly important when handling sensitive patient data," he explains, adding: "The UKSH benefits from state-of-the-art technology and thanks to our service retains sovereignty over its data.” 

Increasing the quality of care – relieving the burden on medical staff

Germany's second largest university hospital wants to use the cloud solution from T-Systems and Google Cloud to improve the quality of care, reduce the workload on medical staff, and cut costs. "With this cloud solution, we are laying the foundation for the use of other innovative solutions,” says Rudi Dück, CIO of the UKSH. For example, we see great potential in the use of artificial intelligence to assist with MRIagnetic evaluation and tumor detection. Also to relieve our medical specialists of unnecessary routine tasks so that they have more time for treatment.” 

The results of diagnostics can, for example, be digitized in the cloud. This includes the documentation and archiving of findings from patient samples and imaging procedures as well as treatment options.

High data protection and data security standards

The T-Systems Sovereign Cloud powered by Google Cloud meets the highGerman requirements for data protection, data residency, and security. The keys used to encrypt the data are held in T-Systems' German data centers. In addition to encryption, the Telekom subsidiary is also responsible for training staff, implementing the services, and structuring the data that is transferred from many systems in the clinic. The collaboration with UKSH will initially run for twelve months.
