    Case report Uppsala Date added: 03/05/2010Tags: ambulance, case report, ePR, MobiMed

    New electronic patient record (ePR) makes patient care at the Academic hospital more efficient. Pre-hospital care in the ambulance is becoming more important, since many medical procedures are carried out before patients arrive at the hospital. The ambulance services in Uppsala County in Sweden are precursors within the ambulance IT field as they use research of their own as well as of others in order to make the care chain more efficient. When the organisation wanted to improve their patient record management they turned to Ortivus. Implementing MobiMed ePR has resulted in simplified work processes for the staff. The system also provides the organisation with a better source for evaluation and research. Above all, the patient information is now significantly more structured and relevant and the staff, both in the ambulance and at the hospital, has gained access to the information in a completely new and innovative manner.

    Swedish Government Presents eHealth Report Date added: 16/07/2009Tags: eHealth, EU, patient safety

    As part of its EU presidency the Swedish government have presented a report on eHealth. It focuses on the impact on healthcare in general by introducing eHealth, but also the effects of not doing so. For instance it is concluded that eHealth is not anymore an issue of technology but rather implementation. The study have focused on six EU states, Czech, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain and Great Britain. The report shows that in these countries significant savings and increased patient security can be obtained by introducing eHealth solutions in the day-to-day healthcare practice. The study was conducted by Gartner on behalf of The Ministry of Health and Social Affairs in Sweden. For the Swedish government, eHealth is considered one of the top priority issues during the Swedish EU presidency in 2009. Read more
