Business: Surgical Sciences
Stimulus: At a time when digitization and robotic surgery is at an exciting stage globally, the Swedish company is emerging Surgical Sciences As a leading global provider of safe patient training solutions. In recent years, the company has shown very strong growth with an exceptionally high share of exports. I grew up in Sahlgrenska University Hospital, and there is a strong Swedish presence and most of the production and development operations are in Sweden.

Nominated in this category: Elekta, Xenecure Medical Systems
Price Class: Swecare Rising Star Award
Business: Vesiba Kerr
Stimulus: The candidate selected by the jury to be this year’s winner of the Swecare Rising Star is Vesiba Kerr Which enables caregivers through its platform to deliver digital care meetings. Visiba was founded in 2014 on the basis of the conviction that digitization is inevitable if healthcare is to be able to provide equal, quality and safe care in the future. For many healthcare organizations, covid-19 became the true starting point of digitization and the entire Visiba organization was tested when more than 800 digital clinics were put into operation over the course of a few weeks. Visiba’s strategy was to firmly establish itself in the Swedish domestic market and from there it expanded to other Nordic countries and the United Kingdom. During the fiscal year 2020, sales in markets outside Sweden increased by 194%. The fact that the company has succeeded in performing on all fronts shows exceptional perseverance and fighting spirit and should provide excellent conditions in the digital development that healthcare only experienced in its infancy.
