October 12, 2012
By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com
Accenture has been awarded a five-year contract to build and implement Norway’s electronic health record (EHR) system. Accenture and the Norwegian Directorate of Health will implement a single, national EHR system for enabling medical professionals to view patient medical records from all parts of Norway’s healthcare system. This includes demographic information, clinical history, physician interactions, diagnostic assessments, medications, procedures and patient interaction summaries.
Tonje Sanderg, who leads Accenture’s Health & Public Service business in Norway commented:
“We believe Norway’s efforts will enable meaningful advances to their healthcare system by increasing the effectiveness of patient care,”she said. “Using the Norway EHR system, medical professionals will have access to a single patient record that consolidates all medical history across the health continuum.”
The Norwegian Directorate of Health is responsible for enabling healthcare services and public health policy for Norway’s five million citizens. The Directorate, as part of the Norway Ministry of Health, leads the development and implementation of care services, disease surveillance, public health policy and medical research.
