Complete picture of patient possible when Enea integrates healthcare IT - Sussa and Enea Business Software sign general agreement Enea Business Software recently entered into an agreement with Sussa - the Swedish consortium of a number of players in healthcare IT. The general agreement covers the provision of services up to December 2001, with the possibility of an extension. Its agreement with Enea Business Software means Sussa is taking a new step towards a future where healthcare personnel get IT support on a daily basis from different information systems. In this way, a common technical platform gives healthcare personnel a complete picture of their work with patients. "We believe Enea can help us to facilitate better co-existence and order in the proliferation of systems. They have in-depth technical knowledge and experience of service platforms," says Ante Grubbström, project manager for Sussa, the consortium of the Blekinge, Sörmland and Västerbotten county councils together with Stockholm's Karolinska Hospital and the Stockholm province's northern production area. "We have been brought together in Sussa by the need for a strategy for the future and interactivity between new and old IT solutions." The name Sussa comes from the Swedish equivalent of "Strategy development for healthcare support applications". On the basis of a common need, Sussa seeks to solve jointly specific IT problems in order to become stronger in a weak supplier market. The agreement with Sussa strengthens Enea Business Software's position in the healthcare system integration market. Previously, Swedish county councils including Östergötland, Kalmar and Jönköping have started work on a common platform for interactivity. "The project will now begin with preliminary studies and analyses in cooperation with Resco. After selecting strategies, we will know how the route to interactivity between the platforms looks," says Johan Pettersson, who is responsible for the Enea Business Software business division that deals with healthcare.
