Aino Health’s strategic partner Kunnan Taitoa signs agreement with another Finnish city

After only two weeks’ co-operation Kunnan Taitoa has signed its second agreement for Aino HealthManager. The agreement is with the City of Rovaniemi and Aino Health’s service will provide valuable insights regarding absence leave with objective to provide better preventive health care.

Kunnan Taitoa, the leading provider of services in finance, procurement and human resources processes to the public sector in Finland – with nearly 200 customers – continues to roll-out Aino Health’s cloud-based services.

“Our strategic partner Kunnan Taitoa has done a very good work in finalizing this second agreement in a very short time. It is very gratifying that the City of Rovaniemi shows trust in Kunnan Taitoa and Aino Health’s service”, says Jyrki Eklund, CEO of Aino Health.

The agreement with Rovaniemi includes Aino Health’s cloud-based service Aino HealthManager including integration services for Occupational Health care vendors and Pension Funds. The contract also includes Aino Analytics for gaining immediate insight into healthcare vendors reaction times, absence rates and other related health management processes. This will give the management team in Rovaniemi an opportunity to improve productivity as well as their efficiency in health care and employee wellbeing in general.

“Rovaniemi has a rising need for fact-based corporate health management process. The co-operation with Aino Health and Kunnan Taitoa will help us to improve our health management process. It is important for us to increase employee engagement and a key step to making this happen is that our employees are feeling well and safe throughout their career with us”, says Ville Urponen HR Manager and the Head of Personnel Services in City of Rovaniemi.

The value of the order is not of the size that it will significantly impact Aino Health’s earnings in Finland during 2017 but it’s a yet another new indication on that the partnership with Kunnan Taitoa is of strategic importance for Aino Health.
