Finland to work with Germany on developing digital health solutions

Finland is interested in co-operating with Germany to use health data and AI solutions to improve patient care and consumer health as well as health system management solutions.

Finland has the highest number of digital health startups per capita in the world – currently around 500 companies and the amount is growing. But Finnish companies need distributors and integrators who want to transform healthcare and can localise these new ideas and solutions for Germany.

  • Finland ranks among the three strongest health technology economies in the world, while it is its largest high-tech export. Our cutting-edge digital and mobile expertise stems from Nokia’s years on top of the global mobile phone business. Digital health technology is certainly one of the most compelling and promising fields.
  • Finland is one of the first countries in the world to set up a national digital patient data repository covering both the public and private healthcare sectors. All Finns have online access to their health records and their e-prescription history.
