St Jansdal Hospital in the Netherlands has extended its contract for iSoft Lorenzo for a further three years, in a deal worth €4.5m.

iSoft will implement additional Lorenzo patient management and clinical decision support functionality at the 340-bed public hospital at Harderwijk. Support for existing hospital information systems will continue while they are being replaced with Lorenzo.

St Jansdal is a key partner in the development of innovative iSoft solutions, such as an iPhone ‘app’ that enables nurses to register general patient data, including pulse and temperature readings, directly into the electronic patient record.

Peter Herrmann, managing firector of iSoft Central Europe said: “St Jansdal is a pioneer in the use of healthcare IT. We enjoy an excellent partner relationship and share similar philosophies.”

In February, iSoft installed Lorenzo 3.5 across some surgical departments at St Jansdal, with the new release providing tools for patient management, results reporting, requesting and advanced clinical data capture.

Roll-out of a GP Viewer portal was also completed, allowing 67 GPs in the community to view patient records and radiology and pathology reports at the hospital.
