Capio increases management focus on Modern Medicine and Modern Management

To accelerate the execution of Capio’s strategy – Modern Medicine and Modern Management, the company has strengthened its focus and organization of the Group Management, effective March 18, 2016.

Capio’s vision is to ensure the best achievable quality of life for every patient. The basis to achieve the vision is to speed up the implementation of new treatment methods – Modern Medicine - with a clear and responsible organization – Modern Management. 

Stronger medical management aims at speeding up the implementation of Modern Medicine. This implies the transfer of know-how, benchmarking and sharing of best medical practice within and between the countries of operation, as well as further development of systematic medical quality measurements within the Group. This is reflected by the establishment of a new and stronger medical management in Capio.

Modern Management is key for the implementation of Modern Medicine. This implies an empowered organization, from care unit level all the way throughout the Group structure, with clear responsibilities and strong local and regional managers driving change in every day work. Capio is also strengthening its focus on collaboration with key public stakeholders to drive the development and benefit of Capio’s role to the public healthcare systems in which the company is active, also reflected in the management of the Group. 

The management is structured in Group Management and Operating Management teams for the three geographical segments. Group Management work in close cooperation with the Operating Management teams developing Capio in line with its strategy.
