Akershus University Hospital HF (AHUS) is a teaching hospital located just outside Oslo, the capital of Norway, established in 1961. AHUS is affiliated with the University of Oslo.

AHUS is the primary hospital for more than 560,000 people―10% of the population of Norway―with 700-bed capacity. When AHUS moved into new buildings in 2008, it was one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in Europe. AHUS is one of the pioneers in Electronic Patient Records and has participated in eHealth R&D activities as well as standardization, both nationally and internationally. Currently, AHUS is focusing on patient and consumer involvement, cross-level communication and technology deployment, on Artificial Intelligence in clinical work, on patient privacy and information security, and on standards for health informatics.
