FRISQ Care recognized by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare in new report
February 6, 2019
In the latest report by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen), FRISQ Care and the collaboration with Region Västra Götaland (VGR) is recognized as a project for others to learn from – with great potential for quality improvements from both patients’ and providers’ perspective.
On February 1 the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare released a new report describing how Sweden for a long period of time has been in need of coherent care plans across multiple care providers, but that technical solutions for this purpose have been lacking.
After asking all Swedish county regions and EMR providers about ongoing projects on connecting different events in care processes, VGR’s project with FRISQ Care was highlighted in the final report. The National Board of Health and Welfare recognizes FRISQ Care as a great tool for empowering patients and providers to work together as a team in forward-looking care plans. The potential effects for the safety of patients is also highlighted in the report, stating that the availability of information makes it easier for care givers to provide flexible treatment of patients and to identify potential risks early – also during ongoing processes.
The report concludes that FRISQ Care provides great potential for quality improvements both from patients’ and providers’ perspective.
