Robert Åström returned to Finland in 1996, after having lived and worked five years in Toronto, Canada, and continued working for and in the two continents a while, contemplating possibilities and alternatives. Then when Magnus Björkgren, a good friend and researcher at the Kokkola University Consortium Chydenius, introduced him to interRAI, Robert's interest was immediately evoked.
– I began to think that this could be something. The number of elderly people is increasing and that causes a lot of challenges. How can we take good care of everybody? This was a completely new territory, there were no IT solutions whatsoever. What could I do to ensure that if I need assistance at some point in life the Finnish health system can provide the right kind of care at the right time to every elderly person? says Robert Åström, who has a Master's degree in automatic data processing.
Raisoft has grown steadily year by year. Today we are the market leader in Finland and Switzerland and employs over 60 people. In addition clients are found across the globe, inlcuding Singapore, Austrialia, Canada, Germany, Norway, France, and Spain. A significant milestone was achieved on October 1st, 2020 when the Finnish government passed a new law mandating the interRAI Home Care and Long-Term Care instruments for elderly care.
During the last few years prevention has become increasingly important. When you address things early on it is easier and more cost efficient to change them and the results are usually better. Stemming from this thought a new product was created: Smart Break, a cloud based work wellness solution that inspires two three-minute activity breaks at the office. It all began as an in-office idea but became a spin-off and a new product.
Making the quality and effectiveness of care visible is one of the cornerstones of Raisoft software and consultancy services. Therefore it is very important to us to take care and develop the quality and transparency of our own performance.
