Video on SJUNET get support for Lync

Compodium has been awarded a contract to expand the current “National Multiparty” service to include seamless connectivity between traditional video conferencing services and Lync.

Compodium operates since many years national video services on SJUNET, the internal IT infrastructure used by Swedish healthcare providers. The use of video in the care is increasing rapidly every year and a number of county councils are now introducing Microsoft Lync (Skype for Business) for administrative videoconferencing between employees. However, the video technology behind Lync is not compatible with existing video conferencing systems being used for video meetings and telemedicine. As a result Compodium has upgraded the “National Multiparty” service for efficient interconnectivity between relevant video systems. The solution is since the middle of June in service and available for all SJUNET users.

The contract was awarded to Compodium by Inera AB, a company jointly owned by all the county councils and regions in Sweden. Inera is currently responsible for some 50 national projects and services within national health care and is providing support to all county councils and regions in their ambition to integrate defined services into the regular operations.

Almedalen, the unique politicians week

The 2014 activities in Almedalen draws a record crowd. In front of a packed remote seminar audience representatives from the Karolinska University Hospital and the County Council of Västerbotten told about their experiences of distance medical care and how telemedicine and e-health contributes to higher efficiency, lower costs and a better care for patients, both within rural and metropolitan areas. During the seminar Compodium assisted with quality assurance of connections and video technology from the live surgery performed at Huddinge Hospital.

-Everything worked perfectly and the audience got to see an impressive display in practical telemedicine at it’s best, says Thomas Molén, strategist within distance care at the County Council of Västerbotten.

The unique Almedalen week: The Almedals week has been held on the island of Gotland in over forty years. It all started in 1968 when the then Education Minister Olof Palme spoke from a truck at the gunpowder tower in Almedalen.

The early years of political speech has evolved to become the largest political meeting place, with participants from all political parties and corporate Sweden. Through democracy and openness this is the week everyone want to debate political platforms and social issues. The openness and accessibility during Almedals week is unique both for Sweden and the world. All events during the week are free and open to everyone.

The political parties in Parliament are the core of Almedals Week. Their participation in seminars, press conferences and speeches from Almedalen form the foundation of the week, but other events are just as important.

Illustration: In upper left corner of the picture we can see the audience, the operating room at Huddinge Hospital is below that and specialist doctor Urban Arnelo giving support to the medical team in the operating room via video link is located in the upper right corner as well as a clinical live video feed of both X-ray and endoscopy (in the lower part of the screen shot).

Information: The ERCP procedure (Endoscopic Retrograde CholangioPancreatography) that was demonstrated is an effective and merciful examination method where a narrow and maneuverable tube (an endoscope) is inserted via the mouth down to the stomach and duodenum. This examination method is mostly used for investigation purposes but also in order to remove gallstones as well as to enlarge suppressed ducts
