Digi.me is delighted to announce a partnership with Norway-based e-health specialists Egde Consulting.
Partnering with Egde gives digi.me an entry into the Nordic market with excellent expertise, ambition and contacts in the e-health space and other business areas.
Together we are working to create the environment for new innovation around the personal data economy and the Internet of Me, putting the user at the heart of their medical data.
Key aims are helping to increase the digitisation of Norway’s health services as well as pushing for greater patient centricity.
Egde Consulting’s Andy Harrison said: “Egde works with innovative private and public sector organisations.
“We recognised the need to create simple solutions for integrating data while providing best practice in privacy and security and see digi.me as a key solution to these challenges.”
As part of this partnership, digi.me’s Founder and Executive Chairman Julian Ranger will be speaking at the e-health in Norway (EhiN) conference this week.
EhiN, now in its fourth year, aims to raise both e-health in Norway and global awareness of Norway as an e-health nation and will feature 100 speakers and 50 exhibitors over two days.
Egde Consulting specialises in the standardisation of health technology and is an expert center for advisory services, development and testing of e-health solutions. Its Test and Certification Center is integrated with an innovative “living lab” where real users are involved in testing new technology.
Egde works closely with central authorities, research institutions, municipalities and health authorities to help develop effective health services that focus on the user.
Egde Consulting’s eHealth and welfare technology services ensure a safe and efficient flow of information from users to primary and specialist healthcare. This means:
That a vendor’s solution meets functional and non-functional as well as regulatory requirements, and can come to the international market faster.
That the government gets effective processes and good health services, as well as being involved in the testing of new technology and service innovation.
That users receive both customised healthcare and increased self-esteem, which both have a positive impact on quality of life.
