Cisco plans to help the southern region of Denmark grow its use of video technologies in hospitals in an effort to further advance health facilities in the region.
Regional Council Chairman Carl Holst signed a memorandum of understanding with Cisco’s Hans Hwang Monday, agreeing to work together to expand Southern Denmark’s use of modern technology in their hospitals and mental health facilities, Cisco said.
The memorandum aims to further Danish doctor’s telepsychiatry practices and increase the number diagnoses to be given to patients at home through videoconferencing, Cisco says.
“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,” said Hwang, vice president of Cisco Advanced Services.
The goal of the memorandum is to develop and implement a total of five sub-projects in the region of Southern Denmark within the next six-months, Cisco said.
The projects will aim to give the region greater knowledge about the requirements and functionalities that may be needed along with the provision of the technologies.
Cisco said the memorandum also contains a study of mobility technologies including development of the Danish region’s wireless network.
