Home to about half the world's elderly, Asia is a key destination for health service providers and medical supply companies, and OneMed - northern Europe's leading medical supplies distributor - is keen on sharing its health care logistics expertise in the region.
Backed by extensive product knowledge and distribution know-how, OneMed dispenses more than 40,000 lightweight and disposable medical consumables to municipalities, physicians and hospitals all over Europe.
"We are not only successful in distributing products, but in delivering the items in the fastest and smartest way," says CEO Johan Falk.
More than a distributor, OneMed acts as a bridge between manufacturers and patients by relaying actual market needs to product companies. OneMed packages information from manufacturers and makes it readily accessible to patient care providers through its integrated information technology platforms.
Simplifying an institution's supply ordering process, OneMed's distribution system provides product combinations and recommendations tailored to the specific daily needs of various patient care areas. This approach results in significant cost-savings, efficient processes and better quality of life.
"Putting ourselves in the customers' position, we understand what they need, the accurate quality level of what they need and how they buy it," Falk says.
In addition to representing a number of respected brands such as SCA, Coloplast, Mölnlycke Health Care, Attends and 3M, the company sells and markets products under its private labels evercare, SELEFA and BATIST. As a springboard to serve Asian markets, OneMed seeks independent suppliers competent in product development, and invites health care providers to tap into its elderly care expertise.
"We want to help elderly care providers in China improve their services," Falk says. "What we offer Asia is packaged competence for the health care category built on a reliable IT platform. We want to be a long-term partner that maximises cost savings for private and public medical institutions, and increases quality of life for patients."
