Secapp delivers a crisis communication and alert solution for 12 healthcare organisations in Estonia
Secapp has won the tender of the Estonian Ministry of Health for the national communication, alarm and management system. By winning the tender, Secapp will supply its system to 12 Estonian hospitals and ambulance services.
The use of Secapp starts with a pilot period which lasts six months.
– The pilot period is scheduled to begin later this year, with more than 1500 users. After the pilot, Secapp system will expand to an estimated 10,000 users in these 12 organizations. In total, Secapp currently has 83,000 users, so the scale of this agreement is very significant for us and it will bring about 10-15% growth next year alone, says Kari Aho, CEO of Secapp.
Secapp is not a completely new system in Estonia, as one of the hospitals involved in the competition, Põhja-Eesti Regionaalhaigla in Tallinn, has been using the Finnish system for a couple of years.
– There have been good experiences from Secapp in Tallinn. About a year ago, the Estonian Ministry of Health conducted a more extensive investigation into such systems and the tender was conducted last summer and early fall, Aho opens up the backgrounds.
– When the news of the victory came, of course it was an incredibly great thing. This is one of our largest delivery and it is great that we are able to help organizations that are responsible for ambulance services, critical and non-urgent medical care as well as pediatric medical care. This is a strong indication that we are seen as a reliable partner and particularly suited to critical operating environments where saving lives is really a matter – even on a daily basis, Aho adds.
