NCHICA is a private, nonprofit consortium of healthcare providers, payers, corporate partners, professional associations and government agencies formed in 1994 with the mission of assisting NCHICA members in accelerating the transformation of the US healthcare system through the effective use of information technology, informatics, and analytics.
These virtual meetings held on February 13th and May 28th brought thought leaders together from Skellefteå County Hospital/ Umea University Hospital, Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden; in the US we had thought leaders from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Center for Rural Health Innovation, Duke University Medical Center, Internet2, and University of New Mexico.

—“We have had very favorable responses and perhaps a solid interest in starting a pediatric telemedicine interest group in North Carolina. NCHICA is grateful for the opportunity to bring together such an illustrious group and we look forward to future occasions” Holt Anderson Executive Director at NCHICA.
—“There is much to be gained on both sides with this type of virtual meeting and we have the ambition to run more of these to leverage the mutual experiences to have a positive impact on healthcare delivery.” Bengt Grahn CEO Compodium International AB

Compodium is pleased to announce the opening of our US office in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Bjorn has 30+ years of experience from global 500 organizations as well as emerging companies in key market arenas.
The US market is of special interest because of the changes brought on by “The Affordable Healthcare Act” one piece of the act aims at moving towards pay for performance rather than transaction. Creating Accountable Care Organizations to improve quality and get better efficiency where communications and visual collaboration will play an important role.
—“The US market is very competitive and expensive to enter, however we feel that we can leverage the experience we have managing the visual collaboration and virtual meetings for the Swedish healthcare. The market is huge with no established market leader in the healthcare space and it is therefore an important market for us” Bengt Grahn CEO Compodium International AB.
—“As the US healthcare industry is fragmented with several stakeholders and on top of that in a stage of change. We have an excellent opportunity to get recognition as a thought leader using our virtual meeting platform to connect old legacy technology with the plethora of mobile devices that are expected to be used in the healthcare system. The mobile devices have an opportunity to connect the doctors with their patients creating better communication and efficiencies in the system.” Bjorn Nordwall President Compodium Inc
