Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (HUS) selects Innofactor as Provider for Cloud Services, Professional Services and Project Deliveries

Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (HUS) has selected Innofactor in a competitive tendering governed by a framework agreement, to transfer application and infrastructure solutions into cloud and provide continuous services and related professional services. HUS estimated in its invitation to tender that the value of delivery would be approximately EUR 1.5 million during the 2016 – 2017 contract period. However, the final value of the deal cannot be stated for certain at this point.

The delivery includes transferring the existing On-Premises applications and infrastructure solutions of HUS into Microsoft Azure cloud environment and monitoring, management and support consultation services. In addition to this, the delivery includes cloud architecture development, application and infrastructure service design/planning for individual projects and implementation of HUS‘s own solutions such as Virtual Hospitals. Projects and services related to cloud transformation are planned to be delivered in phases during 2016 – 2017.

”The deal is strategically important for Innofactor and gives an opportunity to continue the well started cloud capturing project with HUS and deepens co-operation in the successful HUS Terveyskylä (Health Village) project. The deal strengthens significantly Innofactor’s position in delivering Microsoft Azure cloud services in Finland and as a provider for IoT and Machine Learning solutions in the healthcare and other industries.” says Sami Ensio, CEO, Innofactor.

HUS is a Joint Authority formed by 24 municipalities. Its task is to offer member municipalities and their residents the necessary services for specialized medical care and care of the mentally disabled. The Helsinki University Central Hospital (HUCH), which operates as part of HUS, is also responsible for providing care for patients with rare illnesses or otherwise requiring specialized care in its responsibility area, which is larger than the hospital district, and in some cases, in the entire country. The responsibility area of HUCH includes, in addition to the Hospital District of Uusimaa, the South Karelia Social and Health Care District (Eksote) and the Kymenlaakso Social and Health Services (Carea).

HUS Health Village project is a virtual hospital entity, comprising portals offering for anonymous users’ information about services and topical information in format of news, stories and articles, self-help guides, self-evaluation surveys and quiz including gamification concept.

The decision will be enforceable after the appeal period according to the law on public procurement has ended.
