- Healthcare Denmark article – Intelligent sample traceability, monitoring and sortation solution at Aalborg University HospitalIn Denmark, each year, approx. 21 million blood samples are transported from general practitioners or other clinics to a hospital laboratory for analysis. The samples are unpacked and handled manually. This requires many human resources, repetitive work tasks and introduces risks and errors related to manual handling. Therefore, the Danish company Intelligent Systems entered into close collaboration with Aalborg University Hospital in North Denmark Region and the robot company LT Automation to develop an innovative fully automated solution that handles, unpacks and sorts samples at the laboratory and ensures traceability and monitoring of temperature conditions all the way through the value chain. Traceability, temperature monitoring and automatic handling and sortation allows for automated and data-driven quality control of the sample materials, which reduces the number of errors in pre-analytics and increases the quality of test material as well as the patient safety. The automated monitoring has helped to improve workflows at Aalborg University Hospital. The number of temperature deviations registered has been reduced from 100% of the samples received, when the hospital started to use the solution, to less than 4% today. At the same time, the working environment at the laboratory has improved significantly through automation of repetitive work and thus preventing repetitive strain injuries (RSI). The solution won the Danish Automation Award in 2019 and has been nominated for the Industry 4.0 Award in 2020. The article was published in Healthcare Denmark newsletter March 2020. [...]

- Intelligent Systems emphasized in growth reportIntelligent Systems A/S is used as a case study in the report: Growth Denmark 2025 – From startup to scaleup-nation compiled by Monday Morning (Mandag Morgen). Here Intelligent Systems is highlighted for their growth – as one of three in Northern Jutland – and only one from Mariagerfjord. “Denmark is one of the nations in the world, that create most startups per capita. But we are challenged by the fact that when it comes to getting new businesses to grow and create jobs, we are below the OECD average – and far behind countries like the United States.” Monday Morning (Mandag Morgen) writes. About the report they write: “The report Growth Denmark 2025, prepared by the Monday Morning on behalf of Danish Regions, illustrates how the Danish economy can be switched to a new paradigm where efficient, regional ecosystems create a breeding ground for new high-growth companies, the so-called scale-ups. Basically, Denmark is well equipped to develop from a startup to a scaleup nation. Growth is lurking in every corner of the country. And the existing regional business structure creates a good foundation to develop the regions’ respective strengths. But there is a need to focus efforts on strengthening ecosystems around high-growth entrepreneurs.” Read the full report here (in Danish): Rapporten VækstDanmark 2025 The case study on Intelligent Systems can be found on page 30 of the report: [...]
- We have won – DISAPI becomes a reality!We and our partners have won the PCP procurement phase 2: “The development of new, innovative robotic solutions for sterile processing departments.” Through the next 2 years the solution we have worked on for the last six months will be developed and tested. The project will help to create a more efficient and safe health care system – and put Denmark on the world map of automated sterile processing departments. The world’s eyes are currently directed at Denmark in the sterile processing department area. Being one of only two places in the world which are working intensively to develop and automate the core functions in sterile processing departments. And it makes sense as the benefits appear to be huge: The majority of workflow in sterile processing departments today is manual, and it is a significant source of errors – especially with risk of contaminating instruments which can cause infections for patients and ultimately can lead to the loss of life. There might also be errors in the packaging of instruments with delays of ongoing operations and thus increased risk for the patient to follow. At the same time the work is physically demanding with much lifting and repetitive tasks and that means a significant wear on the individual employee. Finally, the current methods of sterile processing departments are inherently labor intensive, making it costly – and there is a need for greater capacity, since the number of operations is steadily increasing. In response to this challenge we have, since October last year, worked to design a solution that can ensure quality, improve the working environment and make sterile processing departments more efficient through automation. The work has resulted in the solution “The Intelligent Sterile Processing Department – Automation of Packing and Inspection” or short: DISAPI. About DISAPI Until now developments in this area has focused on automating the transport flow in the sterile processing departments. DISAPI takes it up a nudge with a visionary and intelligent solution that automates the core function – packing and inspecting instruments. The solution automates the majority of tasks currently carried out manually – in particular: All transport of instruments and other materials within the sterile processing department A large part of the inspection and maintenance tasks performed on every instrument, e.g. control of hygienics, lubrication and control of curvatures Packing and wrapping of instruments – including verification that instruments are not lost or mixed up In addition, the solution ensures full traceability of the instruments throughout the sterile processing department. The solution is based on a combination of known and proven technologies – including mini-AGVs to transport instruments around the sterile processing departments – and cutting edge technologies in RFID-based traceability, vision and robotics. These technologies have not previously been brought into play in sterile processing departments – and with good reason, since they previously haven’t reached a level of maturity that is necessary to make the vital inspection and control tasks performed on the instruments. In other words we make our way into uncharted territory. DISAPI is created in collaboration with our three partners: LT Automation, Process Engineering and Granau IT; each of which has extensive expertise in robotics and automation technology, the design of and requirements for sterile processing departments and RFID technology. The sterile processing department of the future The vision for DISAPI is to create a fully automatic sterile processing department and the next two years will be a big step in that direction. With DISAPI finished is means the end to lifting and carrying instruments, pushing and twisting carts. Employees can also say goodbye to many repetitive tasks, for they need no longer to count, control and inspect every one of the thousands of instruments that day passes through sterile processing departments. This means that far more instruments can be processed – without the additional costs. Last but not least DISAPI increases patient safety: The fewer hands an instrument passes through, the lower the risk of errors that pose a risk to patients’ health. That we look forward to!

- Presentation of IHL prototypeAfter two years of development the IHL project hit another milestone when the IHL prototype was presented at a workshop at Health Innovation Centre of Southern Denmark in Odense on March 13, 2015. The workshop focused on intelligent hospital logistics and the challenges that the Danish hospitals face through an innovative-, medical- and hygienic perspective. The prototype is the IHL projects visual idea for an innovative intelligent transport and logistics system for future hospitals. Over 50 persons with an interest in logistics for Danish hospitals participated in the workshop and got the chance to see and test the prototype and to get a taste of how the future hospital staff can order, pick up and send all kinds of goods, equipment, medicine and waste via “the magic closet” built into the wall. In addition to the presentation of the prototype, the workshop program had a series of oral presentations on hospital challenges in the logistics field seen from a medical, a hygienic and an innovative perspective – and how IHL can help solve these issues. Dr. med. and deputy director of Hvidovre and Amager Hospital, Torben Steen Mogensen, focused his presentation on the challenges for hospitals regarding new and better logistics and how efficient automated logistics could help to faster treatment of patients. He says: “I think that IHL can help to deliver more precise logistics, so doctors and nurses can be supplied with what they need. I strongly believe in automated systems. It is the future of the hospital system, ” Niki Nicolas Grigoriou, CEO/Software Architect at Intelligent Systems and IHL Project Manager, is positive: “This day has given me a clear feeling that we are on the right track and that we got a pat on the back by several of the participants at the workshop. Next step is to do more testing with the users at the hospitals before we present the final and modular solution.” See video from the workshop: (in Danish with English subtitles) Read more about IHL here See more workshop photos here [...]
