Hundreds of saved working hours
The starting point of the project was to improve the efficiency of Päijät-Häme Central Hospital by digitizing the documents related to patient care
Decrease in archieve orders in two years
”The digital archive brought us cost savings in both personnel and material costs as well. We can use the freed resources to improve other aspects of our operations.”

”Earlier, when a patient came to the practice, the archivist had to look for the medical report from a paper archive. After this, a courier carried them to the attending physician. After the patient had visited the practice, the same medical reports had to be delivered back to the archive for archiving.
Digital archive allows professionals to fetch information about a patient’s examination results in real time from a single system. This has improved the data security of patient care,” project manager Arja Heikinheimo from Päijät-Häme Social and Health Care Group says.
