- Few nursing homes in Norway have the professional and personnel resources to develop their own evidence-based procedures.

Torunn Wibe is the R&D Manager at Centre for Development of Institutional Care Services in Oslo, Abildsø Nursing Home, which has used VAR Healthcare for several years. She continues:
- This makes VAR an important electronic tool that contributes to improved documentation and acts as a professional support and a fountain of knowledge in everyday work. VAR provides us with instant access to up-to-date knowledge that can be applied in the care of each patient.

Integration is crucial

VAR has been integrated with the medical records system for nursing homes in Oslo. Wibe believes that integration is crucial for getting the most out of VAR: - It becomes easy and second nature to actively use PPN in our daily work, increasing the overall usage possibilities for the organisation.
