Stockholm, Sweden and Espoo, Finland – iZafe Group AB (publ) (NASDAQ First North: IZAFE B) – a leading life science company focused on the digitalization of medication management, is announcing the launch of two pilot projects in two Finnish municipalities together with Vivago. In addition to these pilots Vivago will also participate with Dosell in a number of procurements in Finland during 2021.
In connection with iZafe Group's successful verification of Finnish sachets from Finland's largest pharmacy chain University Pharmacy, a broader pilot operation is now being launched in which these are the first two projects. During the autumn, major training initiatives were carried out to prepare for the launch in Finland and to successfully launch the pilot projects where users will try Dosell to ensure safe and compliant medication via sachets.
“The pilot projects in Finland are particularly interesting as Finland is a strategically important market for the iZafe Group as the digitizing of healthcare is making rapid progress there. 60,000 people are already managing their medication with sachets in Finland and these users represents future users of Dosell. This customer group is also expected to grow rapidly over the coming years.” comments Anders Segerström, CEO of iZafe Group.
The outcome of the pilot projects in the municipalities will form the basis for integrating medication via the dispensing of sachets and the digital medication-dispensing robot Dosell to increase safety and security for users and reduce the need for home visits for patients taking medication.
“We have identified the wide customer need for managing medication and ensure safety of the medication, and this is a great opportunity for us to build a co-operation in this field with iZafe Group and University Pharmacy. These first pilots represent the future offering of Vivago, and we are expecting expeditious growth from this market within next years.” Says Niina Vilkas, CEO of Vivago Ltd.
