iMDsoft’s Clinical Information System chosen by Uppsala County Council in Sweden

iMDsoft® announced that Uppsala County Council in Sweden chose MetaVision® as the Clinical Information System (CIS) for their high acuity environment county-wide. The project will encompass a total of 235 beds. The system will be implemented in Uppsala University Hospital and Enköping Hospital, in units spanning general, thoracic, neonatal and neuro ICUs, ORs and post anesthesia care units. Uppsala University Hospital, one of the largest university hospitals in Sweden, specializes in neonatal care, thoracic care and neurology. iMDsoft and EVRY, one of the largest healthcare IT solution providers in Sweden, cooperated on this project.

When exploring possible CIS choices, Uppsala County Council was impressed with MetaVision’s ability to offer one integrated record with streamlined clinical documentation throughout their high acuity environment. Further, Uppsala County Council saw the value of MetaVision’s customizability, which enables hospitals to easily and quickly tailor the system to meet their clinical and operational needs. Clinicians can configure the system in accordance with how they work and incorporate new processes at any point.

MetaVision generates comprehensive, accurate, and actionable electronic medical records, offering minute-by-minute patient information collection and display. Using MetaVision’s advanced decision support and analysis tools, Uppsala County Council will be able to enforce clinical and administrative protocols, easily create reports for populating national databases and continually identify opportunities for increased patient safety.

“We are honored to have been chosen by Uppsala as their clinical information system partner. This relationship represents our second regional deployment in Sweden, which began with our successful implementation across Jönköping County,” said Mike Myers, CEO of iMDsoft. “We are confident that Uppsala County Council will soon see the high-impact results reported by other health networks using MetaVision.”

“MetaVision replaces paper documentation and gives us the opportunity to collect and look at patient data in a meaningful way. The introduction of this solution will be an important contribution to our ongoing effort to increase patient safety. The system will help us enhance adherence to quality initiatives and to comply with regulatory reporting requirements, reducing the incidence of error and double documentation,” said Christer Nerhed, project coordinator at the University Hospital.
