So what is the solution?
To address the issue of stretched healthcare budgets, the Health Integrator team worked with EIT Health to develop a new funding model. Fredrik explains: “We have issued a health impact bond, that bridges the funding gap between prevention and reactive healthcare. It allows us to use pension funds to invest in preventative health.”
Fredrik Söder, CEO of Health Integrator explains how the platform works: “Health Integrator combines existing services and solutions into a personalised function. It’s open and designed to be accessible for each and every user. We also recognised that changing behaviour is incredibly hard. This is why Health Integrator is different. We don’t just tell people who are at risk to get healthy, but provide a platform and a dedicated health coach to help them do it.”
