Swedish County Council to implement iMDsoft's clinical information system across its hospital network

Jönköping County Council has chosen MetaVision by iMDsoft to provide standardized care region-wide for its three hospitals

LEIDEN, Netherlands--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- iMDsoft® today announced that Jönköping County Council has chosen MetaVision® for Ryhov Country Hospital, Highland Hospital of Eksjö, and Värnamo Hospital. Situated in southern Sweden, these hospitals serve a combined population of 337,000. The hospitals will implement MetaVision throughout their ICUs, ORs and PACUs, thereby providing a complete continuum of care across the Jönköping network. iMDsoft and SYSteam cooperated on this agreement.

The MetaVision Suite of clinical information systems captures, displays, and analyzes the vast amount of patient-related data generated in the hospital. Its powerful decision support and analysis tools helps hospitals worldwide promote patient safety, protocol compliance, cost containment, revenue capture and research.

MetaVision will provide the hospitals with a continuous patient record across their acute care environments, offering healthcare professionals a longitudinal and integrated view of all patient data. Patient information from current and previous encounters will be presented in one flowsheet spanning multiple departments.

MetaVision’s unique staging mechanism will enable the council to standardize care and enforce best practices and protocols across its institutions. Importantly, the system also has the flexibility to meet the diverse requirements of each installed unit.

"We chose MetaVision because the system upheld our high standards and best met our expectations. MetaVision is by far the most flexible solution in the market and is customizable to fully support our workflow and needs" said Dr. Martin Holmer, Head of Surgery and Intensive Care, County Hospital Ryhov, Jönköping. "MetaVision is a reliable choice to take us into the future, and it is scalable to grow with us as we continue to develop.”

“Leading public health services such as Jönköping are increasingly looking towards MetaVision to create a standardized, collaborative environment across the hospitals that they oversee” said Phyllis Gotlib, CEO of iMDsoft. “We are please to announce the implementation in Jönköping county as our first in Sweden.”
