Terveystalo, Finland’s leading private healthcare service company, and Fujitsu have signed a Patja service agreement. In addition to hosted desktop services and on-site services, the agreement covers mobile services, server maintenance as well as product services and license management.
Terveystalo comprises in excess of one hundred offices at more than 60 locations across Finland and in addition to its 2,500 staff members it employs over 2,000 practicing doctors.
Terveystalo has two years' experience of the Patja service. The service has steadily expanded throughout the contract period, which has mainly been due to the company's acquisitions, after which these new parts of the company have also been brought in the Patja service. The latest acquisitions took place this spring, when the ownership of Raahe-based Lääkärikeskus Plasma and Lääkäriasema Axel in Varkaus were transferred to Terveystalo.
”Patja has offered strong support to us in our growth and our efforts to unify our different functions. Terveystalo has operations across the country, which is why standardised and consistent IT infrastructure service is of great importance to us. We have been happy with the service, and what's more, the price is competitive,” says CIO Tuomas Otala of Terveystalo.
”Procuring a wide array of IT functions as a service works well. Our IT management no longer have to order every box and cable separately from different suppliers, which frees up our resources,” Otala says.
”Terveystalo has realised that shared IT infrastructure is one of the key prerequisites for executing a successful merger of companies. It has been a pleasure to have been able to support Terveystalo's growing business. Patja lends itself well for growth companies, as it is flexible and scalable on demand,” says director Antero Vuorio of Fujitsu.
