We applaud the Swedish government for their forward-thinking and recognizing the value of offering this technology on a large scale to help further the well-being of its population.
Rockville, Maryland (PRWEB) November 18, 2015
Swedish citizens will be introduced to an electronic personal health account that enables them to easily access and manage their health data, thanks to Get Real Health’s patient engagement platform, InstantPHR®. Get Real Health is partnering with Capgemini Sverige AB to bring a complete patient engagement solution, called HälsaFörMig, to Sweden’s publicly owned Swedish eHealth Agency. Capgemini will run the service, while Get Real Health’s two core products, InstantPHR® and CHBase (Connected Health Base), will provide the consumer health data platform that allows Swedish consumers to view, collect and store data in their personal health.
The Swedish government’s goal is to contribute to improved healthcare for its citizens by providing a secure personal health record with tools to increase engagement and empower people to take greater control of their own health “HälsaFörMig gives Sweden’s citizens a secure and interactive platform to gather their health information from multiple parties and connect wearable devices, supporting a greater engagement by the individual in their own personal health development,” says Eva Leach Elfgren, project manager at the Swedish eHealth Agency.
Get Real Health’s InstantPHR was chosen because of its proven and secure patient-based platform, its experience working on large scale projects in other countries including Australia, Canada, United Kingdom and the United States, and its ability to understand and address the needs and objectives of the Swedish eHealth Agency.
CHBase is a secure data repository platform that assembles personal health information from sources such as EMR, HIE and pharmacy systems, home health devices, personal fitness devices and applications. All data from the HälsaFörMig service will be managed and hosted by Capgemini in the European Union (EU). Additionally, CHBase enables users to connect their personal health and fitness apps and devices as third-party applications.
“We are elated to be working with Capgemini Sverige AB to introduce this powerful service to the citizens of Sweden,” said Get Real Health President and Founding Partner Robin Wiener. “We applaud the Swedish government for their forward-thinking and recognizing the value of offering this technology on a large scale to help further the well-being of its population.”
Leendert Venema, CEO of Capgemini Sverige AB, added, “HälsaFörMig is a pioneering project and will be a paragon for how Swedish healthcare will be conducted in the future. By putting the individual in the center, the individual will be able to engage in their own healthcare and store their personal information on a safe, digital platform, the first project of its kind. This will be a first step for the public sector to become a natural part of Swedish citizen’s value chain, which are used to services that are customized and provide the possibility to engage. HälsaFörMig will add value for any citizen who would like to have a active part in their own healthcare. In the long term this will lead to a significant increase in the efficiency of Swedish healthcare.”
