The report concerns the Capital Region of Denmark's rollout of Sundhedsplatformen (e-health platform).
Against the backdrop of the problems observed concerning maintaining and recording the level of activity at the individual hospitals in the Capital Region of Denmark, we have examined how the region prepared for the initial rollout of Sundhedsplatformen at the Herlev and Gentofte Hospital. The purpose of the study is to assess, whether the Capital Region of Denmark prepared the rollout of Sundhedsplatformen in a satisfactory manner in relation to the following questions:
- Has the Capital Region of Denmark adequately considered how Sundhedsplatformen would affect the activity level at the hospitals?
- Has the Capital Region of Denmark adequately tested the system and trained staff to ensure that it would be possible to track activity at the hospitals?
The Capital Region of Denmark rolled out Sundhedsplatformen without having a clear picture of how it would affect hospital activity. Furthermore, the test of the system and training of staff in relation to keeping track of activity at the hospitals were inadequate. It is Rigsrevisionen's assessment that in these specific areas, the Capital Region of Denmark's preparation of the rollout of Sundhedsplatformen at the Herlev and Gentofte Hospital was not satisfactory.
Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in November 2017.
