Norwegian heath organisation chooses Frequentis

Helsetjenestens driftsorganisasjon for Nødnett HF (HDO) in Norway has chosen Frequentis’ “multimedia communication solution” LifeX for its control rooms.

According to Frequentis, the technology “will allow control room operators to see all the relevant incoming information about an incident at a glance.” Discussing the solution’s “additional mobile functionality,” the company gives the example of nurses being able to continue consulting with patients by phone “when away from workstations”.

The solution will be deployed across all 16 emergency medical communication centres in Norway, as well as more than 150 ‘general practitioner on-call centrals’ and emergency departments. It will “migrate from the current Frequentis integrated command and control system.”

Discussing the roll-out, Frequentis vice president of public safety, Robert Nitsch, said: “By implementing this solution, HDO are ensuring that citizens and first responders can benefit from new international multimedia and broadband standards.

“Frequentis is proud to have fostered a valuable and trusted working relationship with HDO for more than a decade. We are delighted to be chosen to develop this partnership further by being directly contracted by HDO.”
