CIO Talks with Per Buchwaldt

The health care industry came late to the digital change of its practices. But today the industry is probably one of the fastest moving areas in terms of information technology. Information technology becomes a part of solutions for patients and the technology is also integrated in the diagnostics and treatments of patients as well as supporting Health and Medical Records and the clinical processes. Supporting these developments, the new Healthcare Platform now being implemented by Region Zealand and Capital Region provides huge potentials to capitalize on information technology. The platform will meet the defined requirements for IT support of clinical and administrative work within the health care system in both the Capital Region and Region Zealand. The goals of the platform are treatment continuity and patient safety, efficiency improvements of clinical processes and workflows, and patient and staff satisfaction. The question is how an IT organization should handle these demands and the fast pace of technological change? On this and other related issues, Per Buchwaldt will give his thoughts.


Per Buchwaldt is CIO and member of the Corporate Management group of Region Zealand responsible for the Corporate IT organization. Corporate IT Services supports approximately 17,000 employees.
