Motorola Solutions has secured a contract from Helsetjenestens Driftsorganisasjon for Nødnett HF (HDO HF) to provide the Norwegian Health Emergency Service with a new CommandCentral Control Room Solution (CRS).

The essential work of the Norwegian Health Emergency Services across all medical centres and external outpatient treatment centres will be supported by the advanced control room solution.

This solution will boost efficiency and collaboration among staff, regional health authorities as well as the emergency medical communication centres.

HDO HF CEO Lars Erik Tandsæther said: “The new control room solution allows for significant improvements to efficiency and scalability, providing the much-needed flexibility between mission-critical teams.

“These needs have long been in critical demand for the healthcare system and this solution will greatly improve our ability to respond to emergency calls.”

Motorola Solutions regional vice president Michael Kaae said: “Our CommandCentral control room solution unifies data, streamlines incident management workflows and will deliver greater flexibility to the teams at emergency medical communication centers in Norway.

“Every second counts when it comes to emergency management. That’s why we’re seeing a trend with organizations including HDO move their command centers onto a single platform to drive greater efficiency.”

HDO HF can host the solution within its private data centers, thereby simplifying IT management, while boosting data capacity to meet growing demands and reducing costs by automating important tasks such as reporting.

Furthermore, the solution can aid in boosting cooperation between emergency and broader healthcare organisations.

Motorola Solutions’ CommandCentral software suite is an end-to-end mission-critical software plattform.

Emergency control rooms stand to benefit by bringing all communications channels into a unified, online interface, with no restrictions on the physical location of the resources.
