When it comes to healthcare consulting, Accenture has deep bench of forward-thinking health care industry experts
who know how to go from ideas to implementation. After all: What is success if not seeing it all the way through for
Dr. Andreas Auensen is one of Accenture Health’s senior medical professionals working with his native country of
Norway to build a platform to house the country’s medical records. This data rich and user-friendly information will
be accessible to both doctors and patients in the future and will revolutionise the health care experience throughout
the entire country.
Auensen’s experiences as a cardiovascular internist, clinician, academician, and software enthusiast make him
uniquely positioned to serve as a bridge between the medical community and solution-based IT. Since joining
Accenture Health in 2017, his pioneering perspectives have proven invaluable.
“Even though Accenture is a big organisation, our clients receive personalised attention and customised
recommendations based on their unique challenges,” he said. “Accenture Health’s success lies in the fact that we find

For Auensen, the future of medicine lies in technological advancement. He and his colleagues regularly solicit input
from and confer with a diverse pool of end users, including chief medical officers, technology departments,
government officials, physicians, and patients. Interfacing regularly with these various actors is what’s helping
streamline the process.
When it comes to finding solutions for Accenture Health’s clients, he adheres to two guiding principles: the solution
must add value and must successfully merge people and cultures globally.
“The delivery of viable solutions based on empirical evidence will help pave the way for Norway’s health care system
and forever change the way doctors and patients interact.”
Although he thrives on utilising analytics and identifying game-changing software as tools towards solutions, Auensen
also depends on less traditional sources for inspiration. Playing in a band, skateboarding with his son, and visiting the
remote Lofoten Islands in the north of Norway are among his favorite ways to relax and dream up big ideas.
