CompuGroup Medical Cements Position in Swedish Primary Care

CompuGroup Medical AGThe Region of Skåne, Sweden, announced in the autumn of 2008 a tender for a patient record system to the primary- and outpatient care institutions in the region. The tender covered the entire "Hälsoval Skåne" that today consist of about 130 healthcare centers, 140 child healthcare centers and some 130 centers working with rehabilitation.

The system of choice was the PMO-system supplied by CompuGroup Medical, (former know as Profdoc) and the contract was signed late June 2010. The contact has a planned time-frame of 5 years, with an optional 5 years extension.

At The Region of Skåne they are very satisfied that they can start to implement the new system. "The tender process lasted longer than expected, but we will now begin the implementation project after the summer in order to follow our timeline," explains Ulf Swanstein, head of the Primary Care in Skåne. The implementation project is expected to be completed within a year, and comprises all primary care institutions within the Region of Skåne which also covers the private GP's in the region.

"We are naturally very proud and content that the Region of Skåne chose PMO as their future system for the primary care," explains Linus Fred, General Manager at CompuGroup Medical. Linus Fred adds, "We have built PMO to provide the best possible support for exactly the type of healthcare that the Region of Skåne is offering, and we are convinced that we, together with the region, will be able to successfully implement PMO within the coming year."

PMO has been on the Swedish and international market since 2005 and it today used at several hundreds of installations in Sweden in the primary care and school healthcare. The contract with the Region of Skåne cements CompuGroup Medical's position in Scandinavia where the company is the leading provider of IT-solutions for the primary care in Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
