Region Stockholm signs agreement with TietoEVRY for new IT support to facilitate more accessible healthcare
19 November 2020
The Stockholm region and TietoEVRY have signed a new agreement which supports the implementation of TietoEVRY's digital tool 'Lifecare Coordinated Care Plan'. The product, which was developed in collaboration with inpatient care and municipal care, is part of the region's and municipalities' work to respond to future care needs and has the ambition of providing better and safer care using digitalisation. The agreement is initially valid for four years with the possibility of extending for up to another four years.
The Stockholm region is committed to its digitalisation programme to achieve the overall goal of accessible and close care for an equal and improved health for the citizens. Initially, new digital services will be introduced to enable continued development of healthcare – an important focus to help introduce the future healthcare in Sweden. Today, the Stockholm region has 2.3 million inhabitants and is Sweden's most populated region.
The value of the initial order is approximately SEK 56 million but can be extended to SEK 104 million with additional options and extensions. The agreement between the region of Stockholm and TietoEVRY covers the area that includes co-ordinated planning, the care and nursing plan created prior to discharge from hospital care to facilitate ongoing interventions and measures from municipal health and/or social care services. Patient need determines which nursing and care professionals are involved in the coordinated discharge planning.
At each planning session, the in-patient nurse, the municipality's development worker and the municipality's district nurse are present. This helps to achieve improved coordination between the caregivers and also a greater patient focus and participation in the individual's care and nursing plan.
"The Stockholm region, the municipalities within Stockholm, and TietoEVRY see digitalisation as an important tool for enabling more accessible and close care. We are extremely proud to be able to contribute to digitalisation by delivering comprehensive IT support for the region's operations and the municipalities that facilitates and streamlines the work with patients' co-ordinated care plans", says Lars Johansson, customer executive for the Stockholm region at TietoEVRY.
"With the help of Lifecare Coordinated Care Plan, the region will have the opportunity to use a modern tool adapted to current legislation and operational requirements. This will mean less administration and higher quality but will also create space for better collaboration between the region and municipalities", says Patric Nilson, head of solutions & specialist products within TietoEVRY."
Lifecare Coordinated Planning also provides support for creating a Co-ordinated Individual Plan, a process involving actors at the municipal level.
