There are great synergies between both companies and we see the combination with Oiva Health as a natural development in our collective journey towards expanding our joint product offering, which provides our customers with digitalized and efficient healthcare.”
Juhana Ojala, CEO of Oiva Health Group, adds: “Joining forces with Movendos is a strategically important step for Oiva Health. This combination allows us to expand our Digital Clinic product suite, especially in the primary care, hospital care and social care segments. We are able to offer our customers a robust, white-labeled online patient portal with fully integrated patient communication features. After the successful healthcare reform in Finland, the new Finnish welfare regions are specifically looking for this kind of advanced digital clinic platform to direct healthcare services online. I am extremely happy to welcome the whole Movendos team into the Oiva Health group!”
