Research shows that there is a clear connection between mobility and people’s physical and mental well-being. Our strategy is based on major challenges faced by healthcare: offering more people high-quality care with fewer resources – and this is where mobility is a key factor.
Improved mobility raises the quality of care, prevents complications, shortens the length of care, and minimizes the number of work-related injuries among caregivers. We show the way to positive effects through increased mobility, and work together with our customers to create better conditions for high-quality care.
As a Mobility Outcome Partner for healthcare, we offer solutions were we together with our customers assess the unique needs of each care setting, and develop a tailored program that, in addition to the right equipment, also secures skills and working methods for personnel. Working closely with the customer toward joint goals, we assume responsibility for creating a change in care practice, thus achieving improved clinical and financial outcomes. With this holistic approach we address a market that is ten times larger than the market in which we currently operate.
Outcome-based programs for healthcare
Healthcare is facing a growing need for patient care and rising costs. Our customers need support in solving a number of challenges in a new way so that they can optimize their operations with respect to patients, caregivers and resources. For this reason, a core element of Arjo’s strategy for 2021–2030 is to become a Mobility Outcome Partner and expand our focus on outcome-based programs.
What does it mean to be a Mobility Outcome Partner?
- Together with our customer, we perform an assessment of the unique needs of each care setting based on data regarding problem areas related to reduced mobility, such as work-related injuries among staff, and pressure injuries, venous leg ulcers and falls among patients.
- Arjo develops a tailored program that, in addition to the right equipment, also secures skills and working methods for personnel.
- Working closely with the customer toward joint goals, we assume responsibility for creating a change in care practice, thus achieving improved clinical and financial outcomes.
- Based on this holistic approach toward solving some of healthcare’s major challenges, we are addressing a market that is ten times larger than the market in which we currently operate.
People & Organization
A changed business model with a greater focus on outcome-based selling will place new demands on the organization,and competence mapping and development will therefore be important areas moving forward.
Digital solutions are taking a more prominent role in the healthcare value chain. Arjo make significant advances in this area, for example by developing our offering of digital training courses, instructional videos, service and support, as well as managing internal processes.
Contributing to sustainable healthcare has been at the core of Arjo’s offering since the company was founded in 1957. The Arjo Sustainability Framework 2030 is an ambitious agenda to further develop our sustainability efforts.
