This report assembles a knowledge base for the Nordic Welfare Solutions project, and gives an overview of the core qualities and strongholds of the Nordic health tech ecosystem, concentrating exclusively on health tech solutions outside of the pharmaceutical industry.
The Nordic health care systems are globally renowned for providing efficient (in cost-benefit terms) and high-quality healthcare to its entire population. This is reflected in international media and political debates, which oftenpoint to the Nordics' successful healthcare models, and is confirmed by various international rankings.
“There is an increasing global demand for Nordic smart health tech solutions.”
Health tech solutions are increasingly part of larger health solution value chains or ecosystems, and companies delivering them are therefore likely to benefit from closer cooperation across industries and countries. Closer Nordic cooperation can help create stronger networks and a critical mass of companies, as well as improve market access and aid Nordic companies inexporting their solutions.
