Medical Suite has been launched at Helse Sør-Øst in Norway

Monday, September 28, 2015

Since 2013 Helse Sør-Øst, the largest health region in Norway serving 2,8 million inhabitants, and Software Point have cooperated to implement a new state of the art LAB system. The new system will eventually replace 18 old systems to harmonize operations and bring synergies across the region.

Successful launch for the multidisciplinary system

The pilot site, the Østfold Hospital has successfully launched the new system into production in April 2015. The multidisciplinary system manages the four clinical disciplines clinical chemistry, microbiology, pathology and blood bank. The implementation is proceeding stepwise, with the first three disciplines in production, while blood bank will be taken into production after the Østfold hospital has moved into a brand new modern hospital facility later in 2015.

The most modern IT environment in Norway

Clinical Chemistry at the Østfold Hospital, handles ca 7 million samples annually, which accounts for ca 90% of the total volume at the hospital. The new lab system supports health personnel in smooth, safe and efficient sending of samples to the laboratory and to receive answers electronically. Helse Sør-Øst assesses their new IT environment to be the most modern in Norway.
