Rethinking Care Sweden AB initiates cooperation with MedHelp AB

HCN Group - Rethinking

Rethinking Care Sweden AB ( “Rethinking Care”), through its e-health platform Agilit connected MedHelp AB’s ( “MedHelp”) IT systems with the medical record that Aleris Medical center ( “Aleris”) in Armadale use. This means that MedHelps nurses can remotely take over responsibility for all incoming calls to the health center for counseling and appointments. In addition, Agilit Swedish AB signed an agreement with MedHelp of continued cooperation.

MedHelp has a call center with 200 nurses. By connecting them to Aleris Medical center they have access to parts of the health center’s medical record and can provide Aleris with a complete telephone service in the same way as if they were present at the health center. The nurses can provide safe medical advice, answer questions about the test results and the consultation responses and book medical appointments directly in the health center’s medical record. This provides a higher quality of care and cost-effective care by the right patient booked at the right level. In addition, the phone queues from one day to another are greatly shortened. It is the first time that this type of e-health integration has been made in Sweden, starting in Stockholm County Council ( “SCC”). Implementation has been a collaboration between Aleris, MedHelp, SLL and Agilit. Through the cooperation, the inhabitants of Armadale have better access to care and better service.

In addition, Agilit Swedish AB December 16, 2016 signed an agreement with MedHelp of continued cooperation. The agreement applies to call-off products and SAAS services from Agilits e-health platform and support. The contract runs for one year with the possibility of annual renewal.

Fredrik Eriksson, Director of Aleris Medical center in Tyreso, comments
– We have already seen the benefits of the service. The availability for our patients have become better and MedHelp ensures that patients get the help they need. We have never been through the entire telephone queue already at nine o’clock in the morning, says Fredrik Eriksson, Director of Aleris Medical center in Tyreso.

It’s just one in a series of health centers with the same challenge, says Fredrik Thafvelin, President of Rethinking Care.
