Telemark hospital (Sykehuset Telemark HF) is the regional hospital for the region of Telemark, Norway. The hospital covers a population of approximately 170 000 and employs 3 000 staff. One of the specialties of the Telemark hospital is fertility treatment.
Telemark hospital’s fertility clinic is a regional center for fertility treatment. Patients need to stay in touch with the clinic regularly through their treatment and pregnancy. The treatment requires frequent and rapid communication between the patient and the clinic, for a typical timespan of 12-18 months. This communication came with several challenges:
The fertility department at Telemark Hospital started using Crypho to communicate with their patients directly and in real time. Within two weeks of service launch, more than 1 000 patients started using Crypho successfully as their way of communicating securely with the hospital. The following main features are included: Direct two way real time communication between hospital and patient.
Both to us and to our patients, using Crypho feels safe. Crypho furthermore provides very efficient communication of medical information.
