The Hospital District of Southwest Finland joins the regional information system, Fiale. The new service will considerably facilitate and speed up health care work, as physicians have instant access to test results and patient data - also those collected in district's other hospitals.
The Fiale information portal also enables efficient data exchange between healthcare professionals. The amount of data is quickly increasing: the Fiale database currently contains over nine million patient data references.
Thanks to the service, open care units that join the service at the first stage can, with the patients' permission, access the data collected in the district hospitals as early as in spring 2006. By autumn 2006 the expected number of users reaches 400, and all in all some 3,000 over the next few years.
Fujitsu has implemented the Fiale regional information system to as many as seven hospital districts. Currently all in all more than 800 physicians and other health care professionals use Fiale for searching patient information. During this autumn that number will rise to approximately 3,000.
The Fiale service, which is developed in collaboration between Fujitsu Services Oy and Itella Suomi Oy meets the requirements for high information security and data protection while also enabling reliable access control and user administration.
