The background to the StandIN project, which began at the end of last year on the initiative of Anders Lönnberg, national coordinator for the life science industry in Sweden, is that there is a desire to increase digitisation in healthcare from the Government.

− There are big profits to increase the speed of information transfer between different organisations. By proposing a framework of standards and guidelines will improve the situation of healthcare and long-term care, eHealth industry and research in the country, says Johan Lidén, Chairman of the steering group in StandIN project and business development manager for Norden on Intel Health and Life Sciences.

Increase the exchange of information

The project is financed by Vinnova’s strategic innovation program Medtech4Health with Swedish Medtech as project owner. The first phase of the project, which was completed on 17 June has focused on how to increase the exchange of information between different Healthcare information systems in a time efficient and money saving way.

The project team consisted of representatives from companies operating in Sweden.

− The project has gone through about 70 different standards in order to reach the standards that may be relevant for the Swedish healthcare. StandIN estimates that there are 18 international standards that meets the requirements of the project. StandIN gives no direct recommendations, but our mission is to present opportunities to shape the future of Healthcare information system with business conditions and needs as a starting point, says Johan Lidén.

Intense and complex

Hilkka Linnarsson, project leader for StandIN and senior project manager at Meditude, describes the StandIN project that very intensively, not least in view of the fact that the 3R, which consists of the Stockholm County Council, Västra Götaland and Skåne Region, as well as the county councils SUSSA, in Västerbotten, Västernorrland, Örebro, Södermanland and Blekinge, wanted to speed up the process for their procurement of Healthcare information systems.

− The timetable was cut down two months and during the five-month project, we have managed to do a job that normally takes a lot longer, says Hilkka Linnarsson.

At the same time she feels that it has been fun to lead a project that she really cares about.

− I have an extensive background as a nurse and I’m aware of the difficulties when information is not available when I need it. By facilitating the clinical documentation and information sharing across organizational boundaries and between different system minimizes the risk of misunderstanding in communication, says Hilkka Linnarsson.

The digitization streamlines health care

There is a large digitization wave in health care.
Meditude AB is a specialized company in health care area, including working with system development and management issues.

Consulting firm started in the beginning of 2015.
-I have been working as a software developer and architect in health care since I completed my studies at the Royal Institute of technology in 2002. Health care is an area where there is constant development on the ICT side and that is also why Meditude in a short time reached high-impact on the market, says Qemajl Imeri, CEO and founder.

Meditude work with solutions that increase efficiency and strengthen innovation in health care.

− Since the national e-health strategy came there has been an intensive and collaborative work all over Sweden. Here at Meditude we can contribute with our competence. All employees have a background in health care and have a good understanding how to lead various projects in the area, he says.

Facilitate information transfer
Qemajl Imeri, the main project leader for a mission around structured data (SVD) in the Stockholm County Council.

Qemajl as main project leader has been a part of the management to develop infrastructure and methods to facilitate the transmission of clinical data from medical records to the Quality Registries.

− This saves time for healthcare professionals and they can work much more efficient. Double documentation has long been a problem in health care and by eliminating this it saves a lot of time that you can spend on the patient meeting.

− For example, SVD-project has delivered a solution which means that the County Council of Stockholm and Gotland has direct transfer from the medical records to five psychiatric Quality Registries. A rough calculation that we have done in the SVD project shows that healthcare professionals have saved approximately 5 200 hours of unnecessary double documentation for the year 2015 compared to if they themselves would have been forced to search for information in the medical record and then documented it in the Quality Registries webinterface. When the solution during 2016 will be introduced to all psychiatric care units the time savings will be considerably larger.

National Quality Registries
There are 107 national Quality Registries within the health care system, which is unique for Sweden.

− Unfortunately this gold mine is today created at the expense of healthcare professionals time. The healthcare professionals are forced to first enter data in its EHR system and then make a note of the same information in a national Quality Registry. One of SVD-project’s tasks is to create infrastructure and methods that enable the time-consuming duplication of documentation will disappear. It is exciting that Meditude can contribute in this work.

Welcomes new employees
Meditude have four employees.

-Although we are still in the starting blocks, we have already been through a wonderfully exciting trip. In the future, we will continue on our successful line and create added value for our customers through innovative thinking and innovation. In addition, we welcome new colleagues who are passionate about working with modern business development and system development, says Qemajl Imeri.
