Krys patients in Stockholm can continue to seek care digitally through the app, around the clock, and from 1 September, if necessary, also book for a physical examination at one of Krys care centers in Stockholm - within 24 hours. By combining digital and physical care in this way, Kry provides Stockholmers with more accessible care while more patients with different symptoms can now get the help they need.
We have wanted to open health centers in Stockholm for several years, so it is with great pleasure that we can now take care of more patients by offering both digital and physical care in a seamless way. It benefits both the inhabitants and society at large. We look forward to continuing to make good and close care available in even more places this year and next year, says Erik Hjelmstedt, Sweden Manager at Kry.
The first health centers in Stockholm have now opened in Gallerian and on Sibyllegatan. At the opening in the Gallerian on Tuesday, the County Council of Finance in the Stockholm Region, Irene Svenonius, was present and given a tour and demonstration of how the integrated care chain between digital and physical care at Kry works.
At the same time, construction is in full swing on another healthcare center in Sickla shopping district, which is scheduled to open in the autumn. On September 1, Kry also formally took over ownership of the primary care chain Helsa - which means that Kry will provide physical care at health centers in Hornstull, Älta, Sundbyberg and Vallentuna.
We are looking at how we can expand further in several different places in the region and, among other things, expand our psychology business. We want to establish ourselves in places that can be easily reached from different places in the region, and in the long run also open our own health centers outside the customs, says Nadine Gerson Flam, Regional Manager Stockholm at Kry.
With the establishment of physical health centers, Kry will now begin to be financially reimbursed like all other primary care providers in the region. The patient fee will be SEK 200 for a doctor's visit and SEK 100 for a nurse's visit.
