We believe a comprehensive solution for connected care provides the best experience for both the patient, relatives and health care professionals. We are proud of our excellent results and accolades, but most of all we cherish the feedback we receive from the patients themselves.

Oslo municipality: Welfare technology project (VIS)
The district of St. Hanshaugen in the municipality of Oslo was our very first client. In 2014, the district, together with the districts Gamle Oslo, Sagene and Grünerløkka, received state funds to try out welfare technology solutions through the project called Velferdsteknologi i Sentrum (VIS). The report from the independent follow-up research shows remarkable results.
Sarpsborg municipality: Mestry
During the period 2016-2018, the Norwegian national program for welfare technology has tested connected care services in Oslo, Sarpsborg, Trondheim and Stavanger. Dignio delivered solutions to Oslo and Sarpsborg. In the municipality of Sarpsborg and the project “Mestry”, the call center service was outsourced to Dignio. This gave a particularly high user satisfaction according to the independent research report:
“The users in Mestry have responded very positively to the new service. Within the safety goals, self-management and lifestyle habits, the selection in Mestry has the highest score, compared to the other sub-projects.”
Østfold Hospital, Kalnes: The Cancer Clinic
During 2015-2017 the hospital carried out an innovation project examining remote monitoring of cancer patients as a preventive health service with Dignio as a partner. Patients were allowed to take blood samples to test the white blood cell counts at home and report on side-effects from their treatment with the help of MyDignio.
The project was recognized in the government’s cancer strategy for the period 2018-2022. The patient group was small, but the results convincing. Gaining insight into their own state of health made them safer and better equipped to make good, preventative choices in everyday life.
