    Systematic donates corona system to test centres


    An IT system designed to help give the health authorities an overview of test centre capacity took Systematic just three weeks to get up and running.

    Systematic took just three weeks to develop a system able to provide an overview of capacity at the country’s 20 corona test centres under Testcenter Danmark. The system was donated to the state free of charge. 

    Combating the coronavirus makes it vital to keep ahead of the spread of infection. To meet the need for an increase in test capacity, Systematic offered the Danish authorities a customised solution to keep control of tests and bookings at Testcenter Danmark’s testing sites.

    Digitisation Director Nanna Skovgaard from the Danish Ministry of Health states that there is a need to manage capacity, and that the time of healthcare personnel should be used on testing, and not on “cumbersome bureaucratic reporting regimes”.

    The system is called Columna Flow Capacity Management, and is an adaptation of the flexible and user-friendly IT system already being used at many Danish hospitals in a slightly more advanced version. The customised version of the system is configured to receive data from the test centres’ booking system, providing the health authorities with a complete overview of their capacity.

    The solution has been developed and implemented at no charge, although the ministry will cover Systematic’s costs for running it, at the rate of approx. DKK 7,500 per month.
