”The approval of Tactivo for mobile access to Pascal is a breakthrough for secure mobile services within Swedish healthcare and we are certain that more care systems will follow this development.

We can increase our presence with the patients not having to return to the office to update patient files on medication. This solution also increases patient security as we always have access to accurate information”, says Lise-Lotte Carlsson, system administrator, Kungsbacka municipality.
Beside iPhone, iPad and Tactivo, the solution consists of the access service Mobilt SITHS from Svensk e-identitet and the log-on application NetID from SecMaker.
