The Digital health service
The digital health service is put into force in the three hospital and at all the general practitioners. The digital health system (also called THS in the Faroe Islands) is a joint journal and communication system in the Faroese health service, and approximately 1.000 health employees use the digital health system on a daily basis.
THS contributes to guarantee a professional health quality, rational use of resources and that the patients’ course in the health service is coherent.
THS collects all information on patients in one system, so that all health information about the individual Faroese patient is available, whether you go to your general practitioner or a specialist, to examinations in a laboratory, or if you are hospitalized in one of the three hospitals.
