DecideAct closes contract with a customer in the surgical sector
DecideAct has signed a contract with Klíníkin Ármúla – Iceland’s only privately operated surgical service with a license to operate an inpatient department. The clinic will use DecideAct’s digital tool to monitor the strategic progress and make sure that the organization’s strategic goals are met.
We are pleased to announce that DecideAct now enters a new business field as we have signed with the first customer in the surgical service sector and are welcoming Klíníkin Ármúla as a DecideAct customer.
Klíníkin Ármúla is a modern medical center where specialists work together to deliver safe, high-quality medical services to achieve the best possible quality of life for each patient. The clinic has four operating rooms with equipment that meets the highest standards and strictest requirements of the international scientific community. As the only privately operated surgical service in Iceland that has a license to operate an inpatient department, Klíníkin is able to carry out larger operations.
CEO of Klíníkin, Sigurdur Ingibergur Björnsson, says: “The COVID pandemic is posing some major challenges within the health sector in Iceland as in other countries. The current health system is in a transformation phase and will be so in the coming years. Klíníkin is thus operating in a challenging environment and has a unique opportunity to be in the forefront of the changes ahead. We look forward to the cooperation with DecideAct which we consider as a crucial part of our company’s pathway to build a solid growth and transformation platform into the future.”
CSO and Co-founder of DecideAct, Bjarni Snæbjörn Jónsson states: “The contract is an important step for us, as we are entering a new and very interesting vertical with our solution. We are looking forward to supporting Klíníkin Ármúla with their strategy implementation, and we expect a lot from the agreement as we have good experience in transferring the knowledge we acquire from one field to similar areas,” Jónsson concludes.
Private hospitals and clinics, like the medical field as a whole, have enormous potential that is growing globally. As an example, in France alone, the turnover of private hospitals and clinics was more than 110 billion DKK in 2018 (Source: Statista). According to cms.gov (The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services), the U.S. health care spending in 2017 was $3.5 trillion. The share of Hospital Care (33 percent) was $1.1 trillion in 2017.
