For investors

“We need a smarter way to work”

That’s what one of our clinical partners said. That’s the problem we use digital health to solve.
And that means we are changing the chronic disease healthcare delivery model.

Change drivers

We see six factors that make today’s way of doing things unsustainable. Let’s use our home market of Sweden as the example.

  1. Chronic disease care accounts for 80-85% of healthcare costs.
  2. Demographic shifts mean fewer taxpayers support the national health service where, in turn, there are fewer healthcare workers.
  3. Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases among children and adolescents. Diagnosis rates are rising…
  4. Typically diagnosed early in life, type 1 diabetes patients face life-long medical complications.
  5. Diabetes impacts the entire family with worries, extra planning and even lost income.
  6. Internet penetration is 90% and over 80% of people use a smartphone.
