The CAD$55 million, 12-year agreement was signed between Locus Solutions AS, the Norwegian subsidiary of Enghouse, and the four regional health authorities. The solution enables health care authorities to provide rapid assistance in response to medical emergencies.

The advisories will be based on real-time critical information about the patient’s condition, location, estimated time of arrival and requirements for treatment.
The procurement agreement includes software, services, development, testing and implementation over the term of the agreement. Following the rollout, Enghouse Locus will continue to provide maintenance support and ongoing product enhancements. […]
