Fujitsu Services Oy and Medi-IT Oy, a company specialised in providing IT services to two hospital districts in southeastern Finland, have signed an IT service contract. According to the contract, Fujitsu will now manage the IT infrastructure of the South Karelia and Kymenlaakso hospital districts in collaboration with Medi-IT based on the Patja operating model.
The contract currently covers about 1,750 computer workstations, but this number will increase to over two thousand by the end of this year. In addition, Fujitsu will take over the management of 34 servers and a network with associated peripherals. The service will be launched at the beginning of April.
"We want to ensure the availability of our services when the hospital districts migrate to the new patient information system. This will highlight the criticality of IT infrastructure services and require extended user support hours of operation," comments Timo Koivu, Managing Director of Medi-IT.
"We were looking for a partner who would best meet our requirements and be able to support our operations. We were also looking for an economically viable solution that would allow us to focus on our core business, which is the implementation of social welfare and healthcare-specific solutions," explains Koivu.
Fujitsu has already been providing a SAP-based financial and material management system as a service to Medi-IT for the past couple of years.
