Norwegian hospital goes smart with the help of 1,500 Lumia smartphones

As part of a process to streamline its operations, a hospital in Norway has distributed 1,500 Lumia smartphones for employees to use. The Østfold Hospital Kalnes in Sarpsborg has adopted the smartphones to help employees with keeping track of patient alerts and more.

As part of the rollout, each phone will be set up with special applications for use in the hospital. For example, the Lumias will help send out alerts to hospital workers when equipment has become unplugged, when supplies arrive from the warehouse, and more. In addition, the hospital is using the unique colors of the Lumia handsets to distinguish them for use. Each color will represent what they are to be used for and which employees can use them.

Thanks for the tip, @aMaverick77
