Fujitsu Finland Oy is setting up an ICT development centre in Tampere to develop services and functions in the healthcare industry. The centre will be fully up and running by summer 2012.
The centre will compile and strengthen Fujitsu's expertise in the social and healthcare sector services, and in the latest technical solutions of this particular industry.
”With its staff of 40 professionals, the centre will serve all Fujitsu customers in Finland. We wish to accelerate the application of ICT in medical care, and advance improved utilisation of ICT among our customers,” says director Pekka Manninen, head of healthcare industry services at Fujitsu Finland Oy.
Kari Aho has been appointed the head of the development centre. Together with the healthcare customers, technology vendors and research institutions, the development centre will embark upon building up a new form of collaboration network. It will focus on developing and deploying ICT architectures and new services as well as on promoting the operational philosophy of continued improvement.
The development centre already has its first projects underway, having a flying start to its operations as a whole. Pekka Manning reckons that the advantages of partner-based collaboration in particular lie in identifying new solutions and technology options.
”With this development centre we are strengthening our position at the forefront of providing modern ICT solutions. It is our ultimate goal to facilitate the day-to-day work of the healthcare professionals. The process point-of-view is also an important part of this development: Electronic services must pave the way for collaboration beyond organisational boundaries,” Manninen says.
