Public-Private Partnership Elevates Health Innovation in Helsinki - A Strategic Synergy between Siemens Healthineers & Metropolia

Generated with AI

Partnership Origins and Growth: The collaboration between Metropolia University of Applied Sciences and Siemens Healthineers, a leading global medtech company, began in 2021. Since then, their shared vision for the future of health technology has strengthened their partnership, with Siemens providing support and mentorship to the university.

Addressing Healthcare Challenges: Ossi Koskinen of Siemens Healthineers emphasized that the complexities of healthcare can't be addressed by a single entity. He further highlighted that technology can provide solutions to healthcare challenges in Finland, especially given the nation's aging population and geographical expanse.

Practical Benefits for Students: Siemens' involvement has been particularly influential in Metropolia’s radiographer training program. Senior Lecturer Heli Patanen noted that students' early exposure to Siemens technology, widely used in Finnish hospitals, equips them with a competitive edge as they enter their professional careers.

Expanding Collaboration: Siemens Healthineers and Metropolia have further deepened their partnership by exploring areas like the Health Proof Helsinki platform, a joint initiative between Metropolia, HUS Helsinki University Hospital, and the City of Helsinki. This platform, launched in 2022, focuses on supporting health tech companies. Moreover, Metropolia's digital expansion through initiatives like HyMy Village and its "simulation hospital" also sees Siemens' involvement.

Unified Vision: Despite various institutions in Helsinki's health ecosystem expanding in different directions, a common thread of collaboration, innovation, and proximity drives their endeavors. The commitment to mutual growth and working together remains at the heart of their combined vision for the future of healthcare in the region.
