Contract with KuntaPro opens the lion’s share of the social and health care market to Nexamed’s OneClinic solution
Nexamed Ltd and KuntaPro Ltd have closed a major contract on a healthcare resource planning system. This is a breakthrough for the OneClinic solution by Nexamed, headquartered in Oulu, Finland, in the social and health care market.
The contract introduces OneClinic as part of the Kuntax system, which is a cloud service provided by KuntaPro for the operational, financial and service planning of municipalities. OneClinic and Kuntax will merge as a truly seamless integrated solution.
The contract offers excellent opportunities for Nexamed’s OneClinic service, because KuntaPro is a company owned by around 80 Finnish municipalities and joint municipal boards and therefore covers the lion’s share of Finland’s social and health care operators. KuntaPro is a so-called in-house company of its owners: municipalities can purchase products and services from KuntaPro without having to tender.
CEO Mika Kantola of KuntaPro underlines that the management of financial, operational and now also healthcare activities in real time, using one system, offers great advantages for all public sector service providers.
“This also perfectly meets the goals set for the social and health care reform. The new solution will, amongst other things, significantly improve the monitoring of costs,” Mr Kantola points out.
A solution that can be duplicated
According to CEO Kantola, the solution will improve the cost-efficiency of all parties concerned, because one installation and version can be run for multiple clients without customisation.
Nexamed offers the OneClinic system to both private and public sector operators. Therefore, private social and health care service providers, which consumers will be able to choose, will also be able to use the OneClinic solution.
Development Director Esa Sairanen of KuntaPro says one of the strengths of OneClinic is that it is widely and successfully used in Denmark, often considered the role model and trailblazer in digitalising healthcare processes. OneClinic, with proven credentials from Denmark, is basically more ready for the Finnish market than any other solution. Nexamed has introduced OneClinic in Finland, developed it further and perfected it for Finnish conditions.
“An important advantage is that, similar to Kuntax, the OneClinic solution is built on Microsoft Dynamics AX. This makes the merge of Kuntax and OneClinic easy,” Mr Sairanen concludes.
Managing Director Veli-Matti Pietilä of Nexamed describes the contract as a great opportunity for the company. He says it shows that Nexamed has made the right choices when developing OneClinic.
“OneClinic is much more than a traditional patient record system. It is unique in that it can also be used for healthcare service process management. Client data as well as clinical, financial and administrative data is all in the same place and available in real time – unlike in any other system,” he says.
Mr Pietilä also emphasises the importance of the Microsoft Dynamics AX for OneClinic. He says that it is high time to replace the mishmash of countless healthcare information systems with an all-inclusive solution built on a single platform and based on a solid enterprise resource planning approach.
“This will bring significant added value and immediate benefits to the clients. Thanks to the modular structure of OneClinic, clients can also select certain modules and components that can be integrated in their current system architecture,” Mr Pietilä concludes.
