The Scandinavian Market
The business cultures within the Scandinavian countries are different and distinctive as are the healthcare systems although all the Scandinavian countries have a growing profile in digital health. Start-up activity is evident in many regions often originating from the strong heritage in the mobile communication technology. Digital health also benefits from the presence of a strong life science base. Whilst state funded healthcare can be fragmented in the region, the Danish system is widely regarded as one of the leaders in digital health whilst the Finnish government has, in recent years, been active in driving the digitisation of healthcare. Whilst each component country represents a small market, providers have a track record in trialling digital health initiatives.
