Northerner, former ice hockey player and music lover – 34-year-old Jacob Lindberg is, to put it in hockey terms, KIBI’s latest addition to the squad. Joining us with responsibility for developing our services, Jacob is already hard at work on the further development of KIBI’s clinical integration platform, KIBI Clinical Suite.
Jacob, you began work at KIBI in August 2017. How does it feel?
“Great and, above all, extremely exciting. I was thrown straight in at the deep end and that’s the way I like it!”
What’s your professional background?
“I’m a biomedical scientist by trade, mainly working in clinical physiology, including at Karolinska University Hospital among other places. However, at a fairly early stage I realised that I enjoyed the Medtech industry and had an interest in developing technical integration and further exploring the IT aspects of healthcare.”
What will be your area of responsibility within KIBI?
“As product manager, my primary area of activity will be participating in a dialogue with all of our customers about their needs and wishes. Based on this work, we will move on to develop our existing solutions and also produce new services. What we see, is that customers are looking for uniform, standardised solutions that are compatible and compliant with national and international standards. We also need to simplify the integration and exchange of medical information both within and between county councils and regions.”
What’s top of the agenda?
“The major overall project is to work on our strategic roadmap and the development of KIBI Clinical Suite. We are well underway with replacing the technical platform, something that should be completed during the next year and which our customers will initially be unaware of. However, the platform change will be the first step towards the new version of KIBI Clinical Suite. This is an extremely exciting solution that will save time, streamline healthcare workflows and improve patient safety.”
What are the major challenges you see before you?
“KIBI as a purely eHealth provider is of course a relatively new phenomenon and perhaps the Medtech industry is yet to see the full potential of our clinical integration platform, KIBI Clinical Suite. Here I see a great opportunity to demonstrate our patient-focused solutions to many more health sector stakeholders.”
