TietoEnator enters the Danish health care IT system market

TietoEnator enters the Danish health care IT system market TietoEnator has established a new office in Denmark that will specialise in IT solutions for the health care sector. TietoEnator is the market leader of health care information systems in the Nordic countries. The group has more than 30 years of experience in this area, and it employs nearly 300 IT professionals specialised in health care information systems. TietoEnator's goal is to become the leading supplier in the Danish market. - IT systems in the Danish health care sector are dominated by large old systems that cannot be replaced overnight. But the number of new systems based on modern technology is increasing and our first job will be to integrate new and old systems from different vendors, says Marianne Woldbye-Tholin, Managing Director, TietoEnator HealthCare, Denmark. The DHE integration platform (Distributed Health Care Environment) sold through TietoEnator makes it possible to integrate different health care information systems. DHE is already installed and running in several hospitals in Denmark, such as the Amager Hospital. Here TietoEnator has developed a portal through which different systems can be accessed with a standard Web-browser in the hospital's intranet. In the future, the patient will hold a central position in the management of information about him/herself. Patients will also demand alternative service models regardless of time and place. TietoEnator's goal is to have an active role in resolving these challenges and to support the development of health care through first-rate information systems that meet the demands of customer service, as well as cost effectiveness.
