Operational reliability and cost-effectiveness for owners

The Esko patient information system, or elements of it, have over 10 000 users in five health care districts. As an inhouse company, we develop and expand our information systems in agile cooperation with our owners to meet their requirements.

Our mission is to serve Finnish health care

Esko Systems is a non-profit inhouse company owned by its customers. Via our company, municipalities as well as actors in the social and health care fields are able to join in creating agile and affordable information system solutions to support and enhance everyday patient work. Esko is being extended to also take over functionalities in primary health care and patient data management. The comprehensive CPIS solution is to be composed of the Esko patient information system and a social services client information system to be seamlessly integrated with it.

We are creating a regionally strong patient information system solution in which the information follows the patient. We thus ensure patient safety and access to information from basic to special health care.
