Ascom wins substantial frame agreement with the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority
Based on a public procurement, Ascom and the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority have signed a frame agreement to deliver software solutions of the Ascom Healthcare Platform to all hospital trusts in the largest healthcare region of Norway.
The frame agreement with the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (https://www.helse-sorost.no/south-eastern-norway-regional-health-authority) is a pure software and professional service contract and has a duration of six years. It comprises delivering the Ascom Healthcare Platform by implementing a messaging and integration platform through the entire region with 11 hospital trusts and 33 hospitals. To provide the best customer support, Ascom will deliver consulting and training as well as maintenance services.
Ascom’s healthcare suites with mobile applications to smartphones will facilitate workflows for the care staff and smoothen the care experience. The Ascom Healthcare Platform connects devices, systems, information and care teams, creating digital clinical information flow that turns fragmented data into accessible information to support clinicians across points of care: from the bedside, to intensive care units, to operating rooms and more.
The South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority is the largest of the four regional health authorities in Norway and serves 2.9 million people including the Norwegian capital Oslo. The Regional Health Authority employs approximately 80,000 people.
Jeannine Pilloud, Ascom CEO, says: “This frame agreement is an important strategic win and further evidence that we are slowly reaping the fruits of our efforts in aligning Ascom to a service provider with not only hardware but also with an increasing share of software business. Like the substantial win in Wales that we announced in Fall 2020, this frame agreement will further strengthen Ascom’s standing in the healthcare workflow solutions market.”
