Columna now fully implemented in Central Demark Region

In the summer of 2013, warm hands and thousands of cold clinical facts combined, when Central Denmark Region implemented the clinical information system Columna in all ten of the regions hospitals.

Implementation of Columna was carried out as a collaboration between the Region's clinicians and suppliers from GapGemini and Systematic. And it all began with an ambitious pilot project at the regional hospital in Randers in 2010.

Today, Columna has more than 20,000 users. They use it every day because it has more than 3,300 templates, tables and plans which use healthcare content (also called SFIs), which personnel themselves helped to develop. It was a demanding IT project that was very challenging to implement and operate.

The IT systems' uptime and accessibility are crucial for the personnel's daily work, and new work procedures brought challenges as well as clear advantages.

This meant that focusing on a roll-out strategy that did not disturb the clinicians' work with patients was a crucial factor in its successful implementation.

Central Denmark Region covers an area of 13,0000 km2 and the Region's ten hospitals are located across an area stretching from Aarhus in the east to Holstebro in the west. The major benefit of Columna is the flexible and simple procedure for transferring patients.

The regional hospital in Viborg was the last to implement Columna, and the quickest. In just 48 hours, the hospital replaced the old Viborg County EPJ system with the new electronic patient journal.

Not only has the implementation of Columna been a huge step forward for clinicians and patients, it has also benefited the hospitals' administrative processes.

And this benefit will be much appreciated before long – because the decision to implement the National Common Medication Card will mean that collecting patient data will be even more important in the future.

Columna now fully implemented in Central Demark Region

In 2010 Central Denmark Region started the rollout of the Columna Clinical Information system (in the region called MidtEPJ). The implementation was successfully completed in the summer of 2013, so all hospitals in the region are now running on a single electronic patient record.
