Push the industry
According to Korkiakoski, the core interest of the startup is treating patients and developing the health industry. “Being an entrepreneur allows us to help people, but it’s a bit more modern and scalable way than regular physician appointments.”
In the past, the Medified team members have come across various problems relating to treating mental health. Dealing with mental health is difficult – for both patients and professionals – due to the lack of effective tools. The Medified crew, however, believes it can make a real difference here.
Korkiakoski points out that the healthcare sector, with all its regulations, is not the easiest business area to navigate, but the company has been able to maintain “a clear path”.
“Company and team maturity have evolved massively over the course of the last 12 months,” he says, adding that the team is currently taking the first steps in a more business-minded direction.
“We have done pilots last spring to gain initial signals of proof-of-concept. In order to make an impact, we need to focus also on maintaining the sustainable business model that enables our growth,” he says, pointing out that current customer projects and great feedback from the users keep the “good drive” among the team.
“Personally, it has been extremely heartwarming to receive positive feedback that highlights the impact of the software on users’ everyday life.”
