  • Gardermoen Airport in Norway deploys self-serve biometric border control gates

    The Gardermoen Airport in Oslo, Noway, is now allowing users of biometric passports to check themselves through the gates using an EasyPASS gate system, tnp.no reports.

    The technology behind the EasyPASS gate is based on facial recognition and operates in two stages. After passing the first gate, passenger’s faces are scanned and identity is verified through comparison with the photo included in the passport. Once identity is verified, a gate opens and the passenger can walk though, having completed the process. The system takes an average of 18 seconds to complete.

  • NO: Introduction of national electronic medication record

    The Norwegian Medicines Agency has recently contributed to the National Action Plan for eHealth 2014 – 2016 by launching the national electronic medication record and new electronic adverse event reporting system.

    The electronic medication record improves patient safety, thus making life easier for health care providers and creating new online services in the pharmaceutical field. It is a tool through which prescribing doctors, practitioners and pharmacies collect and update information on drugs used. Moreover, the system allows each patient to have access to his own pharmaceutical records.

  • Smart cities with privacy in mind? Norway is making a start

    For smart city initiatives to take root, they need public buy-in, and that means the data privacy challenge needs to be tackled.

    In today’s landscape, the success of enterprises, both public and private, now rests on how they utilize data.

    Organizations of various sizes collect a wealth of data in major cities but principally for their own use, while citizens themselves seemingly derive little benefit from that harvest.

  • Digital Norway sweeps away barriers to information sharing

    The Scandinavian state requires public bodies responsible for geodata to share it freely

    A poultry farmer finds a dead yet apparently uninjured swan on his land. He alerts the government's food security agency, which decides that it looks like a case of avian flu - which could be the one deadly to humans, and in turn might trigger a pandemic. As the vets swing in to action, the agency's IT systems trawl for data on nearby households. Within minutes, everyone living inside a buffer zone miles in diameter has received an automated phone call or a text message telling them what's going on and what precautions they need to take.

  • Minister Aasrud discusses Norway’s digital agenda with Singaporean counterparts

    Last week Minister of Government Administration, Reform and Church Affairs, Rigmor Aasrud, visited Singapore to learn more about cooperation in ICT between Norway and Singapore, as well as to gain insight into Singapore’s work in the digitisation of the public sector.

The Norwegian hospitals invest about 1.6 % of disposable assets in ICT, an amount smaller than the one invested in hospitals by the neighbouring Nordic countries.
