Best of breed is best for all – Iceland makes that choice
Dear followers of Daintel,
There are two schools of thoughts regarding Healthcare Information Technology for hospitals.
Those who still believe in a one-size-fits-all solution and the visionaries or pragmatic of the world who believe that Hospital Information System should be based on integrating Best-of-Breed solutions.
In the first case, you bring down all departments to the lowest possible standards of the main supplier.
In the latter case, you make sure that all clinicians have the best possible tools to carry out their work. Still not convinced?
It is usually argued that it is cheaper to implement an “Omnibus solution” but recent implementation in Denmark have yet again proven how wrong this assumption is. In fact the opposite is usually true in the long run as it also enables IT departments to stay in control of their own IT solutions through an integration platform.
“We selected CIS in our tender as no other supplier could match neither the price nor the clinical functionalities offered by Daintel.
The quick implementation of the solution is a living proof that it is possible to integrate specialized solutions with a HIS and get the best of both worlds.
CIS will help improving our patient safety and quality standards as well as making documentation in the ICU more precise and accountable. We will now be generating quality patient data similar to that of the University hospital in Odense, Denmark; the largest ICU in Scandinavia. Our goal is to enter a Nordic research and patient quality collaboration with other ICUs and implementing CIS is a huge step in that direction.”

We are very proud to have finalized the implementation in the Intensive Care Units in Iceland where CIS is fully integrated to all medical equipment and external databases such as Xray, Allergies, Laboratory data etc... and we are now looking forward to the implementation of CIS* in the neonatal departments and the operation rooms in the fall.
Finally we wish to thank the entire Icelandic team for a great cooperation and for offering us the traditional “CIS cake”, which has become a tradition for each successful implementation.
*CIS stands for Critical information System, a unique clinical tool developed with more than 50 clinicians across many specialities found in Intensive Care Units and Operation theaters. As of today, CIS has registered more than 10 billion patient values, which can be extracted in minutes by our mass extraction tool, HealthQ.
