Sykehuspartner, an ICT service provider serving the eleven health trusts
in Norway's Southern and Eastern regional health authority (Helse
Sør-Øst). The agreement will help transform and modernize the ICT
infrastructure of Helse Sør-Øst health region to improve patient safety
and free up resources for patient care.
HPE will work with Sykehuspartner, who will remain the main provider of
services to Helse Sør-Øst, to provide infrastructure operations and
project services. HPE will also partner with Accenture and several local
Norwegian companies who will assist with transforming and running the
operations for Sykehuspartner.
The agreement will include the transformation of the hosting
infrastructure, workplace environments, network and telecom
environments, security and service management. The solution will provide
Helse Sør-Øst with a stable and modern infrastructure platform, which
will support the regional health applications and services.
"Patient care is our priority. We manage a large number of assets and
resources on behalf of the community and it's our duty to ensure we use
these resources as effectively as possible," said Cathrine M. Lofthus,
CEO of Helse Sør-Øst RHF.
agreement is part of the Digital Modernization program which commenced
in 2013 as part of the strategy led by Helse Sør-Øst. The purpose of the
Digital Modernization program is to enable the renewal and
standardization of work processes and technology across the region.
"Healthcare providers are looking for more flexibility and security with
their IT solutions to enable them to harness technology to improve
patient care and safety," said Mike Nefkens, executive vice president &
general manager, Enterprise Services, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "The
new infrastructure platform will provide the foundation for future
healthcare services and improve services to Trusts, hospitals,
clinicians and ultimately patients in the region."
