Molinette Hospital, Italy
San Giovanni Battista Hospital (Molinette), a 1,300-bed facility in Turin, Italy, is using InterSystems TrakCare® to successfully meet the challenges of providing top-tier healthcare while lowering costs.
Molinette treats approximately 57,000 inpatients annually, and about 15,000 ambulatory patients on average receive care every day. One of the largest hospitals in Italy, Molinette is where about 300 patients come annually for organ transplants. The combination of size and complex care delivery means that the hospital must maximize the value received from every technology investment. That’s what TrakCare provides every day by automating management of inpatient, outpatient, emergency, radiology, operating theater, day hospital and day services, the electronic patient record (EPR), resource booking, oncological pharmacy, and order entry functions. With TrakCare, Molinette has:
- Eliminated paper registration forms and two days of lag time for entry of patient data into the old system. The resulting increase in data availability and accuracy has enabled better patient care and much faster revenue realization.
- Drastically reduced patient registration data losses with deployment of a single EPR, resulting in cutting associated revenue losses by €9 million.
- Improved the quality of registration data to increase the average data coding weight from 1.8 to 2.4, resulting in a major reimbursement increase from the regional government.
- Improved data quality.
- Reduced revenue losses.
- Reduced reimbursement time.
Real-time information delivery, instantaneous data visibility, high performance, and 24-hour reliability make TrakCare a high-value success.

“Cutting revenue losses, improving data quality, and slashing reimbursement time add up to real savings,” says Dr. Roberto Arione, clinical manager of Molinette Hospital. At Molinette, TrakCare effectively pays for itself with bottom-line improvements, and speeding up or eliminating manual processes has freed precious physician and nursing time for improved care delivery. “Real-time information delivery, instantaneous data visibility, high performance, and 24-hour reliability make TrakCare a high-value success,” according to Dr. Arione.
