Mölndal, Sweden –  Qmatic, a global leader in Customer Journey Management, today announced that Karolinska University Laboratory, one of the largest clinical laboratories in northern Europe, has signed an agreement to implement Qmatic Mobile Ticket at 47 of its Laboratory units across Sweden.

By adding Mobile Ticket functionality to its existing Qmatic Orchestra solution, Karolinska University Laboratory can respond to patient needs for safer patient journeys at all laboratory units, while streamlining and optimizing the patient flow. The solution enables Karolinska University Laboratory to successfully enhance the staff and patient experience by reducing patient wait times and eliminating the need for patients to congregate in a traditional waiting room setting to leave samples. Providing a smooth and safe patient journey while continuing to provide patient-centered care in an optimal care setting, while adhering to social and physical distancing mandates.

“When the pandemic came, we needed to adjust our operations to prevent the spread of covid-19, making Qmatic Mobile Ticket an interesting solution for us to eliminate crowded waiting rooms,” stated Dindar Davoody, Biomedical Analyst and System Administrator at Karolinska University Laboratory. “The use of mobile devices has increased where more and more services are mobile compatible, and for Karolinska University Laboratory it is vital that we can offer our patients this type of technology that provides a safer patient and staff experience.”
