Minute Clinics Opening in Sweden

Country

Sweden

Country Correspondent: Ulrika Winblad

During the past few years, several private companies in Sweden have begun offering basic health care through virtual meetings with physicians, nurses, and other clinicians. Recently, these telehealth providers have begun partnering with supermarket chains to open “Minute Clinics” near supermarkets, where people can be examined by nurses or receive telemedicine consultations with physicians. There are currently eight Minute Clinics, and more will open as a result of a SEK 500 million (USD 54 million) investment by the ICA Group, owner of the largest supermarket chain in Sweden, in the digital care company Min Doktor, one of the largest digital care providers in Sweden.
