Denmark Selects InterSystems HealthShare for Countrywide Health Information Exchange

InterSystemsInterSystems Corporation, a global leader in software for connected care, announced that InterSystems HealthShare™ has been chosen to support health information exchange (HIE) throughout Denmark.

The Danish NSI (Nationalt Sundheds-IT), an agency operating under the Ministry of Health, is beginning development of a new service to link healthcare information systems used within Danish regions on a national level. The new HealthShare-based initiative enables the sharing of patient information between healthcare providers and government agencies countrywide.

InterSystems HealthShare is a strategic healthcare informatics platform that enables the sharing of patient information via seamless, bi-directional integration, using active analytics to drive decision-making, and unlocking the unstructured data that is found in patient records.

Denmark's new National Patient Index (NPI) will enhance clinical safety, improve search capabilities and provide a shortcut to securely accessing patient data. All of these aspects are key to the successful treatment of patients who are acutely ill, whose treatment may involve multiple complex processes, or who are previously unknown to a clinic. The NPI establishes an index of documents, stemming from regional health records and numerous national records. These can then be accessed via the Sundhedsjournalen national clinician portal. The Danish security components in this system ensure that confidential health information is visible only to those with legal access to the data.

For InterSystems, the new initiative increases the company's footprint in the Nordic market. "We are very pleased that we have been selected to supply software that is an essential part of the Danish healthcare infrastructure. We bring experience from the HealthShare-based Swedish NPÖ project and look forward to working on this implementation. HealthShare provides a flexible approach and will serve as a complement to the existing Danish solutions" said Paul Grabscheid, Vice President, InterSystems Corporation.

The mandate is provided by the NSI, an agency under the Ministry of Health. The Authority has signed an agreement with Systematic, a systems integrator that has extensive experience in bringing advanced systems together and connecting technology partners to achieve the best possible results. The requirements of the NSI were clear and InterSystems was chosen as a key technology provider because of its experience and the proven capability to meet the extensive criteria.

According to Henrik Jespersen, Vice President at Systematic, "Close cooperation and a flexible approach are essential, not least because the project has a tight timeframe. InterSystems provides a good combination of two crucial components: InterSystems HealthShare, a software platform that adheres to international standards, and implementation services that can ensure a successful project."
