CompuGroup Medical Receives a Major Order for its Hospital Information System

The Niederösterreichische Landeskliniken-Holding (Lower Austrian Regional Hospital Holding – NÖLKH) has chosen the CGM CLINICAL Hospital Information System from CompuGroup Medical (CGM) as the basis for a harmonized and centralized information system group-wide in medicine and care.

Over the next six years, NÖLK and CGM are planning to roll out the system in a total of 19 hospitals — with more than 7,600 beds at 27 locations — under the project name “NÖKIS”. The project partners estimate that the contract volume will exceed 100 million euros over the next ten years. NÖKIS thus becomes the largest hospital IT project to date that entirely relies on the enormous benefits of CGM’s innovative KIS solution.

“We’re very pleased about the trust that the Niederösterreichische Landeskliniken-Holding has placed in us with this contract”, stresses Hannes Reichl, Chairman of Clinical and Social Care at CGM. "The NÖKIS project, based on CGM CLINICAL, will set an example for seamless patient care in a large hospital network. And it will show how such a large network of hospitals can effectively harmonize its information system throughout the group."

Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup Medical, agrees. “The collaboration with NÖLKH confirms our course of recent years. We’ve made a considerable investment in the next global generation of our hospital information system. Thus, we’ve managed to create a solution that has the potential to become a game changer. The consistent process orientation, the possibilities for collaboration with fellow treating parties along the patient journey and the inclusion of the patient stand for this.”

The project will already get underway in May 2019, with one of the hospitals planned to go live in the first quarter of 2021.
