New record system will support care staff in the Municipality of Frederikshavn

In 2021, home care workers, social and healthcare assistants, visiting nurses and social workers in the Municipality of Frederikshavn in North Denmark Region will have a new record system to support their daily tasks for the citizens.

The Municipality of Frederikshavn has purchased the electronic record system Columna Cura, which has already been implemented at four other local authorities in northern Jutland. The solution has been developed by the Danish software company Systematic, and gives employees in the health, care and social sector access to a comprehensive digital record system, where employees can get an overview of the individual citizen’s needs and access key information – even during home visits.

“When working with old, ill and vulnerable citizens, it’s important to focus on the citizen and spend as little time as possible looking at a screen. Therefore, Columna Cura is designed for use with the tablets that care staff often have with them when visiting citizens – but it functions just as well on a computer,” says Henrik Jespersen, Senior Group Vice President at Systematic, according to a press release.

The solution, which the Municipality of Frederikshavn has purchased, is called the Columna Cura Suite, which comprises four modules:

  • Cura Care for healthcare employees: Helps employees allocate and give the citizen the right care and treatment while ensuring correct and usable documentation.
  • Cura Social for the social area: Supports core tasks within the authority which it carries out in relation to vulnerable and disabled adults.
  • Cura Housing: Helps to ensure that employees can find suitable housing or accommodation for citizens in the municipality.
  • Cura BI: Provides an overview of data across multiple levels, thereby supporting the planning and optimization of working processes in the organization.

The Municipality of Frederikshavn will implement the new record system at the beginning of 2021.
