Press releases

City Network, a leading global supplier of cloud services based on OpenStack, announced that the Swedish medtech company AsthmaTuner has selected City Network’s regulatory Compliant Cloud as the base for its services aimed at patients and healthcare institutions. 

AsthmaTuner’s vision is to deliver future-proof asthmatic care to patients and healthcare institutions globally. Having developed a unique digital solution that allows patients with chronic asthma to control their treatment by digitalizing the full care chain for an entire group of patients, AsthmaTuner enables true patient empowerment. 

A critical part of the solution involves ensuring that patient data is managed and stored in a secure and compliant manner according to the strict rules and regulations typical for the healthcare sector. Adherence to national data legislation is also an essential factor. Therefore, the company has chosen to run its service on City Network’s regulatory Compliant Cloud.

“Providing digital asthma care enables patients to take better control of their illness and treatment. At the same time, we ease the burden on the healthcare system. In delivering this type of solution, security and compliance are top priorities. I am therefore excited about our agreement with City Network and its compliant digital infrastructure since it will provide excellent customer value and a European cloud platform for our future expansion,” says Eric Alhanko, CEO of AsthmaTuner.

AsthmaTuner is available in Sweden, Norway and Denmark, and is currently expanding to new markets across Europe. Its customers are public healthcare regions as well as private companies such as Min Doktor. Compliant Cloud, City Network’s European cloud featuring full regulatory compliance, will be used as the backbone of this expansion. 

“It’s great to support such a promising medtech company with our cloud services. For any start-up in the digital space, infrastructure is the foundation that allows companies to scale. With Compliant Cloud, AsthmaTuner has put itself in a good position as it can scale without jeopardizing GDPR or any other data legislation,” says Johan Christenson, CEO and founder of City Network.
