Global technology firm Cisco and the region of Southern Denmark have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to implement video solutions in hospitals and mental health care facilities.

By undertaking this process, the parties aim to enhance patient engagements and improve the health care system in the region.

"The solutions will enable doctors and medical students to follow surgery and consultations and help provide better training for the effective treatment of patients."

The memorandum will help practitioners / doctors to conduct video consultations with psychiatric patients via the internet. As part of the MoU, a total of five sub-projects will be developed and implemented within six months.

These projects will provide the region with knowledge about the requirements and functionalities associated with the video solutions, which allow patients to have treatment either in their own homes or at nearby psychiatric wards via video conferencing.

Additionally, the solutions will enable doctors and medical students to follow surgery and consultations and help provide better training for the effective treatment of patients, even from various parts of the region.

Furthermore, they will help Southern Denmark optimise performance for meetings or multidisciplinary conferences in cancer treatment.

The scope of the MoU also includes a study of mobility solutions, including development of the region’s wireless network and IT infrastructure to improve safety and communication across clinics, hospitals and departments.

Cisco Advanced Services vice-president Hans Hwang said that with the memorandum, the region could become one of the most advanced health care operators in the Nordic area.

"We are proud that Cisco, in cooperation with the region of Southern Denmark, can bring together people, processes, data and things through the power of the Internet of Everything to improve the way that health care services are delivered, as well as the patient experience for the citizens in the region," Hwang said.
