With a significantly strengthened team, and newly signed framework agreements, HiQ is gaining ground within the healthcare sector. The aim is to simplify for decision makers, healthcare providers and patients, with the help of new technology.
This year, HiQ has won several framework agreements for the Stockholm County Council, the City of Gothenburg, and the Uppsala County Council. At the moment, HiQ has seven on-going undertakings in which it performs in-depth analysis and evaluation of healthcare. Now, HiQ also wins the assignment to administer and develop the “Vården i siffror” (“Healthcare in numbers”) tool, which is developed within the confines of the government’s and county councils’ venture on National Quality Registers.
“In 2014, HiQ has more than quadrupled its team of specialists within the healthcare sector. These specialists enhance HiQ’s ability to simplify healthcare in Sweden. We are now taking a great leap forward in an important and exciting area that affects all of us,” says Magnus Gudéhn, Managing Director at HiQ Stockholm.
Today, Vården i siffror receives information from two large national quality registers and presents the information to decision makers at county council level. More quality registers are waiting to join, and in the future, Sweden’s municipalities and county councils wish to present more information using Vården i siffror, as well as reach new information consumers.
“Like all other industries, healthcare will be affected by the large technology trends mobility, internet of things and digitisation. The Vården i siffror assignment, which runs over two years, shows that we are on the right path in our long-term undertaking to simplify healthcare. By using our know-how from other industries, I’m convinced that we will simplify for decision makers, healthcare providers and patients,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.
