Important step in Sweden’s efforts to become a world leader in e-health by 2025
- Allows to improve patient healthcare combining high-end and confidential video communications
- Ensures safe, secure and cost effective digital ward rooms for public and private healthcare providers

This partnership allows to seamlessly integrate Compodium’s proven digital meetings solutions with Mitel’s high-end communication applications and platforms, thus enabling safe, secure and cost-effective care for both the caregiver and the patient.
In Sweden, Mitel is the leading provider of communications solutions for government agencies, county councils, municipalities and businesses with a market share of more than 50%(1).
