St Jansdal Hospital connects to the National Switchpoint in the Netherlands

ISoft : 23 May, 2008  (Application Story)
iSOFT has helped St Jansdal hospital in Harderwijk, the Netherlands, to connect to the National Switchpoint (LSP) and become the country’s first hospital able to retrieve patient medication information via the Electronic Medication Record.
Three pharmacies in the region have also been connected.

The connection to LSP is via iSOFT’s Transmural Medication Viewer (TMV). TMV gives specialists and other authorised carers an overview of all prescribed medication of a patient throughout the Netherlands, as recorded in the National Electronic Medication Dossier (EMD). This EMD is one of the first sub-dossiers of the national Electronic Patient Dossier (EPD) which will in the future consist of all relevant information for the treatment of a patient. Access to national medication information is a tremendous improvement in Patient safety at hospitals and polyclinics.

Roland Ekkelenkamp, regional project manager at St Jansdal, said: “iSOFT has done an excellent job and realised the connection in a very short time. They have the expertise in-house and have shown how a connection like this should be built. We are proud to be the first hospital that is connected to the National Switchpoint (LSP).”

iSOFT‘s TMV has been tested extensively by the hospital’s pharmacy. Once more pharmacies are connected, it will be rolled out to the Accident and Emergency Unit and other specialist departments.

Ekkelenkamp added: “iSOFT has been very flexible during the project. What is more, it has assumed responsibility for the end result. We are very happy with that, because the project will make a significant contribution to the implementation of the national Electronic Patient File.”
