Information and communication service and technology provider Fujitsu and Danish Systematic provide a new information system solution for the Finnish social and health care sector, bringing the first new patient information system, among other things, on the Finnish market in a long time. Systematic’s solution has been developed in Denmark and adapted to the Nordic market. It is patient-oriented and provides extensive support to different care and service chains, even across organisational borders.
“A modular system has been lacking on the market that can facilitate the work of different health care professionals. Systematic’s solutions help to enhance hospital efficiency and optimize their support services,” describes health care sector director Pirjo Nissinen-Kiviranta from Fujitsu.
“Our installation of Columna eHealth Platform in Central Denmark Region is one of the biggest single healthcare system installations in the world. Columna is designed to meet future needs. Combined with Fujitsu’s competences and resources, it supports regional cooperation and the social and health care reform even in Finland. We can also deliver on-site support in Finland in cooperation with Fujitsu in addition to systems,” says Henrik Jespersen, Group Senior Vice President, Health care.
“Fujitsu and Systematic complement each other well. Both companies share the same vision of what modern healthcare IT solutions and services should be like,” states Merja Annala President of Systematic Oy Finland.
Last fall, Fujitsu presented the Smart Hospital, which is a part of Fujitsu’s LeanMyCity® model. It is an answer to the growing needs of municipalities and local governance to balance their income and expenses. Fujitsu is the leading provider in the municipal sector in many countries.
“Systematic’s solutions complement well our Smart Hospital concept. The Danish Columna users are very satisfied with it and we want to offer this user friendly solution to Finnish health care professionals, too. We are constantly looking for new domestic solutions from different providers to the Smart Hospital concept for the joints between social and health care services,” says Pirjo Nissinen-Kiviranta.
“Now is the right time to consider new viewpoints to health care IT. In coming years, to 20 new hospitals will be under construction. With our new offering, we can provide concrete support modern, resources-saving services,” Pirjo Nissinen-Kiviranta adds.
