adesso Schweiz adds expert in digital health to the team

With the addition of Ralf Klappert to the team, adesso Schweiz AG has hired a proven expert in the field of digital health solutions. As the head of the newly founded Business Line Health, he also serves on the management board.

As adesso Schweiz AG continues to grow, it is steadily expanding its industry expertise. Ralf Klappert has been the new Head of Business Line Health and a member of the extended management board since March 2022. He brings with him many years of experience in the healthcare sector and in digital platform development. In his new role at adesso, he and his team will focus on supporting customers in the healthcare sector in all aspects of their digital projects. Because the Swiss healthcare system lags significantly behind other countries in terms of digitalisation, much work lies ahead to catch up. This places a number of new challenges on healthcare institutions within a short period of time. Examples of this include the compulsory rollout of electronic patient health records and the current political debate on a national electronic vaccination card. Other healthcare digitalisation initiatives are expected soon, which are also urgently needed.

The services offered by the Business Line Health are fully geared to the needs of the health industry. Customers receive end-to-end support in the form of consulting and IT services as well as industry solutions to assist patients, care providers as well as e-health providers and operators. Ralf Klappert is active in Swiss professional committees and associations, placing adesso at the forefront of e-health initiatives in Switzerland that allow it to take on a central role in the field. Along with that, being a member of HL7 Switzerland and IHE Suisse further underscores the consulting and IT service provider’s expertise in the technology standards used in the sector.

Ralf Klappert is the ideal person to further expand adesso’s portfolio in this area. He is a proven expert in the IT field with 30 years of experience in the sector. Earlier in his career, Ralf Klappert headed, among other things, the Health & Life Sciences division at another leading Swiss IT company and worked as a freelance developer at start-ups in the field of industrial and medical image recognition and processing. Having lived in the French-speaking region of Switzerland for many years, he has an extensive professional network in Western Switzerland.

‘I firmly believe that digitalisation will take on an even bigger role in the health sector, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. The next step is to now tap the potential of the digital transformation in order to reduce cost and staffing pressures and give patients a greater role in the treatment process,’ explains Ralf Klappert. ‘We support our clients in their digital projects with consulting and implementation expertise to create innovative solutions for both staff and patients.’
