Uppsala County Council Boosts Core Application

Uppsala County Council gives core application a boost for better patient care with Intel

Uppsala County is one of the largest in Sweden. The County Council is responsible not only for healthcare in the region, but also for dental and specialist care as well as research and training. The main hospital in the area, Uppsala University Hospital, is Sweden’s oldest hospital and was founded in 1708. Today it holds 1,100 beds. Each year there are 58,000 admissions, 330,000 physician encounters and 420,000 out-patient treatments.

With 11,000 employees who constantly communicate to coordinate care, IT is at the core of the county’s operations. The IT team is tasked with managing the hospital’s 12,000 clients with about 300 applications. It is a challenging mission as users and patients demand high availability, interoperability, security and uptime.
