Patient-centric Cardiolounge

A modern Cardiolounge for same-day discharge delivers value.


Copenhagen, Denmark

The hospital aspired to handle an increasing number of patients with existing resources, come up with solutions to support same-day discharge, create an environment that makes patients feel less hospitalised, and support value-based healthcare (outcome and value for the patient at the lowest possible cost). These challenges have been addressed by constructing an innovative and patient-centric Cardiolounge. 

  • Higher satisfaction and autonomy for patients and relatives
  • Faster convalescence
  • Minimised disruption of private and professional life by increasing same-day discharge
