With its digital anamnesis, a professional and humble approach, Capio Go has paved the way for effective healthcare services where clinical staff experience and patient feedback have been used to develop the process”.

”It is fantastic to receive such a great award for our efforts implementing digital patient services. We follow the principle ”Digital when possible, physical when needed” to offer the patient increased accessibility and seamless care chains, says Towa Jexmark, President at Capio Go.
