An innovative drive-through solution 

St. Antonius Hospital Heart Center

Nieuwegein, the Netherlands 


During COVID-19, this leading hospital and heart center in the Netherlands needed a safe way to handle the pacemaker and internal cardiac device (ICD) patients waiting to get their devices checked by a technician. 

This drive-through solution shortened check-up times, increased technician efficiency, eliminated the backlog of waiting patients, and prevented 90% of device patients from entering the hospital, lowering their risk of contamination while freeing up hospital resources.

Due to COVID-19, we have limited hospital capacity and we cannot postpone device check-ups indefinitely; this is a great way to continue keep check-ups accessible.
