Vendlet becomes a Healthcare DENMARK partner in a shared partnership with OpenTelehealth.
Healthcare DENMARK is a Danish non-profit organization that works to promote international awareness of Danish healthcare solutions. The overall objective of the organization is to contribute to an increase in Danish exports in the healthcare sector, as well as boost innovation and foreign investment in Danish healthcare solutions.
Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is patron for Healthcare DENMARK.
Healthcare DENMARK is a public private partnership partly funded by the state and partly by the consortium partners consisting of private companies, trade associations, organizations and public organizations. It is important to the board that there is a balance between the public and private funding of Healthcare DENMARK.
For the Chief Executive Offcer at Healthcare DENMARK, Hans Erik Henriksen, it is important to have a company like Vendlet as a partner in the consortium.“For some time, we have wanted a company from the rehabilitation branch in the consortium. We want to cover all branches of the healthcare sector and Vendlet is an exciting rehabilitation company,
which is already successful in the export market,” says Hans Erik Henriksen.
“It is also satisfying to include a small business, as small and medium sized companies have not previously been represented in the consortium”.
Vendlet’s motivation for becoming a partner is the desire to represent the rehabilitation sector in Healthcare DENMARK.
“I get a little frustrated about the huge focus on IT solutions when we discuss assisted living technology. Many good and exciting IT solutions are being developed, but there is still the need to solve very basic care tasks. Denmark is far ahead in offering solutions that can support and improve the care situation. For example, the sling, which is a thoroughly Danish aid solution, that has successfully being implemented worldwide,” says Vendlet’s Director Peter Maindal.
“Peter Maindal enters the board and we expect that he will contribute to our efforts to highlight Danish rehabilitation and assisted living technology. He has extensive experience in the industry and we look forward to working together” says Hans Erik Henriksen.
Peter Maindal is also looking forward to the prospect and being able to access Healthcare DENMARKS's network. “It's always exciting to meet new people and contacts in the industry, which we can never have too many of,” says Peter Maindal.
