Icelandic health service chooses Danish software
Daintel’s software solution CIS is now being implemented in intensive care units and operating rooms in Iceland. CIS give doctors and nurses easy access to critical data which can mean the difference between life and death.
According to plan the software solution, Critical Information System (CIS), of the Danish company Daintel will be implemented full scale in all intensive care units and operating rooms in Iceland by the end of 2017. This is a significant comeback for Daintel’s international ambitions.
The CIS system is tailored for clinical use in intensive care units. In Denmark 60 % of all hospital beds in intensive care units use the system and give doctors and nurses access to critical important data, allowing them to respond quickly in crucial situations. The implementation of the system in Iceland is an important further step for Daintel.
- Even though Iceland only have 330.000 inhabitants the deal is strategically important for Daintel. It proves our solution can be deployed aboard, says Patrick Hulsen, CEO in Daintel.
In Iceland the selection process that lead to the choice of Daintel’s CIS system have been both intense and thorough.
- We spend more than 10.000 hours on this procurement to make sure we didn’t overlook important aspects and to be able to compare different solutions on the market. We are pleased with the choice of the Danish solution, which is used in many intensive care units in Denmark, says Hannes Bjarnason, IT Manager, Landspitali University Hospital, Iceland.
The implementation of CIS in Icelandic hospitals paves the way for a closer collaboration across borders. In Denmark intensive care units have, thanks to CIS’s board dissemination, established a comprehensive collection of data. Meanwhile Iceland have a unique genetic register of the population. This can be valuable for research and future healthcare.
- We have great expectations and ambitions for using Daintel’s solution in our hospital units and hope it will be the beginning of a closer collaboration between the Nordic countries, says Alma D. Möller, Executive Director for Perioperative Services, Landspitali University Hospital.
In Daintel, Patrick Hulsen share this view and expects to further extend Daintel’s presences in the Nordic countries.
- It is now accepted that IT systems in intensive care units no longer just register data but also compare data and learn from experiences in order to improve the treatment of patients, says Patrick Hulsen.
