Brighter and FRISQ initiate partnership to strengthen the infrastructure for digital healthcare.
Brighter and FRISQ have initiated a strategic partnership to strengthen the infrastructure and increase the information flow in the healthcare sector, as well as simplify the implementation of distance monitoring in diabetes care. The ambition is to provide a basis for better treatment of patients during the time between their hospital visits, through new digital services and mobile products.
– FRISQ is an ambitious and innovative company at the forefront of developing healthcare solutions for the future, says Truls Sjöstedt, Brighter's CEO and founder. A more data-driven care and an increased flow of information between, for example, caregivers and patients will be required in the future in order for the healthcare sector to be able to continue to deliver good care at a reasonable cost. The companies complement each other very well and we see a variety of positive synergies arising through this partnership.
FRISQ, listed on NASDAQ First North, has a unique mix of competences from the healthcare sector, pharmacy industry and IT development. The company develops digital services that are a daily support for healthcare professionals, providing patients new opportunities to become more involved in their own care.
– For us, it is a key strategy to work with innovative companies that have devices in different areas, says Martin Irding, CEO Frisq. Brighter is one of the most prominent companies in facilitating diabetic patients in their everyday life through the Actiste service, making Brighter a highly interesting company to collaborate with. The goal is to enable patients to share data, such as blood sugar values, from Actiste to the healthcare provider as part of a healthcare plan in FRISQ Care.
