The surgeons at the biggest hospital in the Nordic countries can now register patients for surgery electronically rather than on paper. The roll-out of DIPS Operating theatre management at 110 operating theatres at Oslo University Hospital (OUS) has gone exactly according to plan!
The use of Vestlandspasienten.no (Western Norway Patient System) is steadily increasing and the number of services in the portal is steadily expanding. It will soon be possible to have an electronic dialogue with the health trust, confirm that you will attend an appointment and add it to your calendar.
Eli Arild has had a rocky year and a lot of contact with the hospital. She is very happy that, at around the same time that she became seriously ill, she was given electronic access to her patient record.
CEO Heidi Arnesen Austlid of IKT Norge deems DIPS ASA to be a Norwegian pioneer in health-related ICT innovation.
The Olafia Clinic now has self-service terminals on which patients can answer questionnaires electronically. Oslo University Hospital is thereby the first hospital in Norway that lets patients themselves register information directly saved in their own patient records.
When the Northern Norway Regional Health Authority and DIPS AS give all patients in our northernmost health region electronic access to their patient records, they will also be establishing Norway in the world elite in terms of patient empowerment.
The project group at NST gives patients at the University Hospital of Northern Norway electronic access to their own records.
