Hoivita hosted a launch event at Lappeenranta on September 6, 2022. A portable, modular house placed at the harbour of Lappeenranta served as the venue for the event. Finnish television director and former MTV host Päiviö Pyysalo attended the launch event along with the Director of the City of Lappeenranta, and representatives from Digita, Hyvivointi Saraste and the Hoivita team. The innovative launch event was streamed live and included a panel discussion by experts on the digitization of health care.

Olokoto’s modular house was placed at the port in Lappeenranta and had a spectacular view of Lake Saimaa. Päiviö Pyysalo was staying at the house as the guest of honour for the night. The theme of the launch event was to demonstrate Hovita’s remote health monitoring solutions and share real-time data about vitals, night movements and the surrounding environment in their One View UI. Home care companies and public sector healthcare organizations are also invited to come and try Hoivita’s solutions first-hand.

With its proven technology and quick installation procedure, Hoivita’s solution has gained the trust of its customers. The devices are non-invasive and discreet ensuring a comfortable environment for the customer. The merger between Vesratio and Henkaus is meant to consolidate Hoivita’s remote healthcare offering to address the ever-worsening nursing shortage in elderly care, home care and nursing homes. “Our easy-to-use platform provides a quick grasp of a patient’s health enabling public and private healthcare operators to take better care of their patients”, says Abhishek Jayaprakash, CEO of Hoivita Oy.
