COMPANIES AND MUNICIPALITY DEVELOP THE SCHOOL TOILET OF THE FUTURE
Several companies, a school and Vesthimmerland Municipality have joined forces to develop a new type of school toilet to improve hygiene and make toilets more user friendly. As a result the percentage of pupils who wash their hands after going to the bathroom has jumped from 26 to 85%.
In collaboration with a consultancy and a private company, the Ear, Nose and Throat Department of North Zealand Hospital developed a new app to make waiting time more pleasant by, for example reducing wait times. In addition to ensuring that patients and relatives are better informed, the app has reduced the time the department spends on pre-consultations by more than 80%.
