Project follow-up

The Apotti Project was launched in 2012. At the time, a policy decision was made to establish the Apotti client and patient information system around a core system with integrated supplementary systems. These will be integrated into one system in order to guarantee information sharing and open interfaces.

Design 2012−2013

The project began with a design stage in 2012. At that time, the basis for the project was established and its objectives, timetabling and resources were determined.

Procurement 2013-2016

At the procurement stage, Epic Systems Corporation was selected as the system supplier for Apotti and Fujitsu Finland Oy as the supplier of the data centre services.

The project is now at the implementation and deployment stage

The first deployment took place at the Peijas Hospital (HUS) on November 10 2018. After the deployment, the system’s adaptation began based on user feedback. The next deployments of the Apotti System will be be carried out in phases in Vantaa, HUS, Helsinki, Kauniainen, Kerava, Kirkkonummi and Tuusula in 2019 and 2020.

User training and the transfer of the existing customer and patient data to the Apotti System are key parts of the deployment stage. Training will focus on the proficient use of the system as well as on the new operating models required by the operational change. The new aspects include the Apotti System’s ERP elements and the new operating models required by online services. Their implementation is managed and monitored after the deployment.
