The market 
Health spending per capita in Finland has gone up over the past 10 years and is slightly above the EU average. However, the public spending on health and long-term care as a share of GDP is expected to increase in the future, due to an aging population and slow economic growth.

Therefore, the need of efficiency gains in health and long-term care delivery are in high demand, so these services remain affordable in the future.

Why participate 
The Meilahti Hospital in Helsinki, part of Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa (HUS), is the largest hospital cluster in Finland, and a new building, the Bridge Hospital, is currently under construction.
