Dr Kalle Conneryd-Lundgren has been appointed as Chief Clinical Operations Officer to lead the company’s Global Clinical Operations Team and expand Kry’s offer prioritizing more efficient care for patients and healthcare professionals.
Kalle will expand Kry’s clinical strategy and work closely with healthcare professionals and technical product teams to strengthen Kry’s tools and software services to better connect patients, clinicians and systems.
Combining medical, technology and business expertise, Dr Kalle Conneryd-Lundgren is a self-confessed ‘coding clinician nerd’ and is driven by a passion for how technology can transform healthcare delivery to provide meaningful patient experiences and improved clinical outcomes.
A specialist and associate professor in reconstructive plastic surgery and craniofacial diseases, Kalle joins Kry from Karolinska University Hospital, ranked as one of the world’s best university hospitals, where he was responsible for all operational strategy and medical technology.
Dr Conneryd-Lundgren said: “I’m super impressed by Kry’s performance over the last seven years. We have a huge opportunity to continue to transform healthcare delivery, addressing widespread inefficiencies allowing ours and partner clinicians to boost care delivery and help millions of patients experience better, more joined-up care.
“We want to be a north star in how we orchestrate care provision for the entire healthcare system, expanding digital healthcare beyond primary care access. Our focus will be on delivering a frictionless system that helps patients and clinicians intuitively navigate care pathways, bring down care debt with better patient outcomes, and make the whole system more efficient through partnerships, tech and data.”
Kry recently hit 6mn patient appointments in Europe and the new Global Clinical Operations Team will work together with the company’s local operations and medical directors ensuring efficient, quality care delivery across Kry’s existing and emerging markets.
Johannes Schildt, CEO of Kry, comments: “We’re very excited to have Kalle on board. His expertise, knowledge and connections will push us to integrate digital healthcare deeper into the system. We want to help more clinicians access our tools and services and continue to deliver great healthcare for everyone.”
