VAR Healthcare is a digital tool for decision support widely used in the Norwegian and Danish health sectors to help avoid employee burnout and its outlook is promising
With a digital transformation on the rise in the health sector and the NHS, the question arises if this process also offers a tailored tool to relieve healthcare workers of extra workload burdens and support nurses to practice their daily tasks with updated knowledge and a greater sense of pride?
The answer is: YES
VAR Healthcare boasts 20 years of experience
With more than 20 years of experience, VAR Healthcare is now looking at promising projects in the UK market. VAR Healthcare has been used and validated for 20+ years in Nordic hospitals, universities, long-term care, and home care. The Norwegian health sector underwent a digital transformation initiated by the government starting in the year 2000 and consequently the health institutions have successfully adapted to digital processes and pathways. VAR, as one of these digital tools, supports:
- professional nursing
- improved collaboration
- continuity in patient care
- ultimately better patient outcomes
It is seen as the gold standard for digital evidence-based nursing in Scandinavia.
A recent published paper by health policy think tank The King’s Fund highlights that a high proportion of nurses under the age of 45 have left their job in the NHS with a high percentage also considering leaving the nursing profession.
